Babies and a Bag

I have three sisters who are all pregnant right now.  They will each be giving my mother a new granddaughter to add to her crew of three grandsons (mine) and three granddaughters. 
We couldn't be more excited. 

I made crib bedding for one sister, Darci Joy.  It was so much fun.
Since it was made before I started sharing my adventures
with you I may post some pictures of it later. 

For now, what I want to talk about is the bag I made for my sister Shelly Beth who already has two beautiful daughters.

I started by brain storming and writing out my design ideas.

This is the fabric I was working with. 
She didn't want a lot of pink or purple since she has been there and done that with the other two girls.

I cut it all out according to the measurement I had designed.

Then stayed up until 2:30am sewing the pieces together.  It was one of those projects where I was on a roll and everything was going so well, I didn't want to quit.

Here is the finished product.  I am so happy with it.  I added a little structure in the bottom, to help hold its shape.

She wanted lots of pockets for all the things babies require.  I decided to put them on the inside so she could use it later or for something other than a diaper bag.

I almost wanted to keep it, but I guess I will let her enjoy it instead.  
I will just make some more. 

I did however, take it to Savannah with me on a "quality assurance road test". 

Now off to find some more cute fabric to make another style for my other sister Stephanie Joy.  She wants a big flower and a place to embroider her baby daughter's name.  I think I will use a version of these or this great idea for the flower. 

Have a great day!!
