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!
