Sunday 14 January 2007 Baby Bag
MY BABY BAG!!!
This is great, I am so proud of it. I was a fishing widow yesterday afternoon, so I said stuff the housework and got stuck into my new project. I bought a simplicity Nappy Bag pattern last week and some red denim. I had a bit of trouble understanding the instructions at first as it is a complicated bag to put together. After reading through it a few times I got the gist. I think I will go with what I have learned from making other bags next time, I know a much simpler way to get almost the exact same result. Still it was a learning experience.
I have to say, however, I have also lined it with the denim and boy it makes for thick sewing. I blunted 2 needles and I think I'd better get my machine serviced soon, but I am really glad as it will be very hard wearing and long lasting. There are also 2 small pouches to go inside it in the same fabric but I was smart enough to line them in a nice light cotton. They will fit some tissues, wipes and little stuff in them. On the bag I have used a nice green piece of the denim (that I found in the remnant bin) for the pockets and the lining which I have made peek over the top to snazz it up a bit. I also double stitched all the important seams.
So here it is.
