Diaper Bag Numero Tres

I made another one of Amy Butler’s Modern Diaper Bag’s from Little Stitches (which I am no longer borrowing from Ellie because I decided to keep it and give Ellie a new one, hehe)! But this time, it’s for me (it’s a rare occasion when I make something that I don’t give away)! I had been itching to use this fabric for something – it’s Anna Maria Horner’s Drawing Room Collection – Sketchbook in Blue. It’s pretty much my favorite fabric of 2008 – I adore it. I was waiting to use it on something that would show off the variety in the pattern and decided that a bag for me would be awesome. Little did I know that it would be MY diaper bag and not just a travel bag. I’m very happy with the way it turned out and it did get easier the second time around. I really think this pattern is really pretty easy to sew – it’s the cutting out of all the different layers that’s a pain!

Well, the completion of this diaper bag starts the beginning of my ‘create for baby’ sewing spree (which will hopefully include a sling, a quilt, some bedding and various other baby items).  If only the 26th would just hurry up and get here to tell us if it’s a boy or a girl I could start picking out fabric!

    Love, love the bag and oh what gorgeous fabric! I can understand why its your favorite.

    I am so excited to find out what you are going to have 🙂

    I remember when i was pregnant with our first child i so much wanted to find out what we were having but DH would have none of it. I also used the “i want to know what colour clothes to buy lol” but he insisted on keeping it a surprise. I finally agreed and everyone was quite surprised that i didnt know what we were having, they thought i knew but was keeping it a secret.
    We ended up having a beautiful girl.

    I have done some projects with this fabric. I love it!

    Congrats on the girl! I’m lucky I had a boy (we didn’t know either), I wouldn’t be able to walk into Target without buying some cute girl thing.
