what have i been up to???

well here is what i’ve been doing as of late!

i made this for myself cause i got tired of carrying the one they gave be at the hospital, plus it ripped somewhere and now the begingins of a hole that is non repairable. i made this from decorators fabric with cotton fabric as the lining. no pattern kind of just winged it. i used ultra thick interfaceing…won’t be doing that again as i have broken 9 needles trying to sew it. i ironed on vinyl on all the fabric except for the elastic pocket, so that it will be easy to keep clean. more pics

inside pockets… 3

inside lined zipper pocket.

side elastic pocket

changing pad… also with vinyl covering

i’m not all the way satisfyed with the end result. i learned a lot while doing it and now know what i can do different. but for my first sewn bag i am happy and happy to carry it. but may make another one with my new knowledge… cause i bought PLENTY fabric!!! i plan to make a additional diaperbag for A`nna because when i go to church she needs her own bag for the nursery. will be winging it also. but it will be smaller and a different style.

something else i have been doing. i have an order for a lady for a baby blanket and a sacque like this one. she wanted blue and green because its for a boy. so i bought some chucky and some Kona in neutral so i could dye it.

chucky dyed and half way knitted up in a garner stitch.

Kona Superwash dyed waiting to be knitted.

just a bonus that i am adding to the order. a burp colth and possible a bib if i get around to it. just cause the lady i’m making it for is cool as a polar bears toenail. but its just something i am doing in spare time away from home. i hope i can finish it all in time.

a burp cloth for Aidan ( my little man) that i started a while back but haven’t had time to finish.

yarn i bought. the black and red is gonna be a dish towel and the neoplatine is gonna be a bag for me!

so thats what i’ve been up to! besides being a mom and NOT cleaning house!! HAHA!

  6. I don’t know how you get it all done with five kids. The bag is wonderful; especially all the little touches that make it work for your needs. I may be buying that iron-on vinyl for some projects I have in mind.
