The last couple of days I kept telling myself that I really wanted to take part at the Summer Sewing Contest over at Ellison Lane's, but I knew I needed to write a post first ;-)
It's probably too late anyways since the Linky is gonna close in just a couple of hours, but I've been dying to show you a diaper bag that I just made for my best friends second baby. And now I have a good reason!
That pattern I used is called Fotobella by (again) jolijou. It's actually meant to be a camera bag, but a lot of people use it as diaper bag as well.
So, here we go:
Before I knew that the baby carriage was gonna be grey and pink I had bought some of those fabrics thinking they might look good together. Then I showed them to my best friend and she thought it was perfect and also needed a new diaper bag.
I made a trial one for myself, but I think I'm gonna safe that one for July, 4th. You will know why once you see it ;-)
On my trial one I used piping for the first time. On this one I made my own piping for the first time!
The pattern doesn't call for those inside pockets, but I've seen them in almost every diaper bag.
The little round pockets are originally meant to carry the easy to loose lens cap, but I'm sure I mommy will find good use for them, too.
I patted the bag with Thermolam (not sure if this is the English name for it), the same stuff you can use for pot holders not to burn your hands.
Although it took my about 20 hours to make this bag, I really like this pattern and I will probably make more.
Thanks for stopping by!
