I wanted to do something very special for her, however, a quilt was out because one of her family members has already taken on that task. After a lot of contemplation, I settled on a bag with the intention of filling it with all kinds of goodies. I love making bags and I know for a fact that a girl can never have too many bags. I chose Anna Graham's Super Tote Bag. The bag is large and has a lot of internal pockets for her to put diapers, bottles, cloths and whatever else it is that babies need to function.
I loved the recessed zipper as well, it adds such a beautiful, professional-looking touch.
I've had this Cotton and Steel fabric sitting in my stash for the longest time and I am obsessed with it. It popped out at me as the a perfect fit for my good friend. I am glad that it has found a good home.
I've only started to create the goodies to go inside, but so far I have a diaper clutch that will hold wipes, diapers and will fold out into a changing pad. It turned out a little smaller than I had hoped, so she may only be able to use the changing pad part for a few months. I used Bonnie Christine's 'Hello Bear' fabric for the clutch which I think is perfect for a baby boy. I will also add some hand made bibs and burp cloths (I have a full half yard bundle of the line to play with) but I am at a loss for further items. Obviously I can add some diapers and bottles but I really want to put more hand-made items as well.
