...........to Grandmothers house we go.
Months ago, I told my daughter in law I would make her a diaper bag when baby came and then promptly forgot. My son gently reminded me about that the other day, so I got right on it. He asked for it to be a bit smaller than the one I made my other daughter in law, and with more pockets. Ok then : )
I found the fabric I had tucked away and used left overs from the first diaper bag for the bottom because it is a heavier canvas fabric. The pattern is from a class that I took earlier in the year and the main fabric is called Vintage Garden for wilmington prints
this is the other side
the pockets that were requested, and the other side has a zipper pocket
for the lining, I used Zen Chic's Background Paper fabric. Love that line! The bottom is a scrap of something else
If he is going to come visit Gramma, he will need a warm hat and some toasty socks too
These are so fun to knit. I have another pair on the needles for a stocking stuffer : )
When we took these pictures it was -10 outside. I'm sure the cold affected my better judgement because I actually posed for a picture!
I am going to deliver the bag this week and soak up some baby snuggles. Sure hope mommy likes it
As a side note, the shop where I work is getting a line of fabric in called 'Paris Forever'. I'm thinking it will be just perfect for another bag for myself : )
