Updated Diaper Bag

A friend requested a new diaper bag, to match her stroller and not too girly.....here's what I came up with



she loves it and so does her hubby!



the inside has 2 large pockets for diapers and wipes.

This bag was made in the same design as many of the purses I make. I think it's the first diaper bag I made with a zipper.

Thanks for stopping by....Carolyn

The reception.......

This rocking chair welcomed and directed guests, it now sits on my front porch....



A short video was played to announce the arrival of the couple....



The Bride & Groom arrived at the reception by skipping across a bridge....



The peanut butter icing on the chocolate wedding cake was melting and sliding off the cake, so they cut the cake before the meal....



Andrea sang to the couple as a surprise wedding gift....



Their 1st dance....



The program was on the back of fans which Heather designed and made....

New Summer Purse for ME

This is not a new style purse but I included raw edge applique and free-style/swirly quilting.

The 2 sides are totally different.....

and the bottom is striped......

(close-up of applique)

I LOVE this bag....the size and shape are perfect for me.

I'm glad I took some time out of wedding preparations to make this bag....it seemed to take a long time to make it. First, I just couldn't make up my mind on some of the design elements and I didn't designate long periods of sewing just for this special treat for myself....but I'm so happy it's finished before the big event!

Thanks for visiting my Blog!
