My Baby/Everything Bag!

It has been a while since I have made a real post.  I have good reason though, I have been pregnant icky and then crazy busy and you know my family always comes first over blogging.  What better way to give an update than on my very first new baby gift.

This is my special friend/sister Kelly.  She blogs at A Plain Path.  She is wonderful at sewing bags and other crafty type items.  She came down for a visit and made me this wonderful diaper/everything bag.  I got to help. She let me do the easy stuff like pressing and seam ripping. ;-) Honestly I am not that great at bag sewing, but I hope to improve on this before too long.  Watching her process was really helpful.  We went shopping for the pattern and bag fabric together, so this was together fun from beginning to end.  She used the Amy Butler Reversible Sunday Sling bag pattern in size small.  I love the yummy Bliss fabric we found. 

Isn't this bag simply adorable!?

So now I have an extra special, one of kind bag to carry all my baby necessities when baby gets here. I may not wait 'till baby gets here to use it though. ;-)  I love the bright and cheery fabric.  Just looking at this bag makes me smile.  Thanks, Kelly, for being a special friend, for the fun visits and making me my first baby gift.  Love and Hugs!


  1. I suppose sewing bags is easier than it looks, but I think I'll stick to quilts for awhile! Love the bag. Thumbs up for real true blue friends!

  2. How beautiful! The bag and the "friendship"!! Love it and the story behind it. You are both a blessing to me! :)
