Deluxe Diaper Bag



Our first grandchild is due in January so
I'm making lots of fun baby things!

This is the diaper bag our daughter requested.
Lots of pockets and jungle animals!

The outside of the bag features 2 large front pockets,
a pocket on each end with
elastic at the top of each pocket.

and...



a large pocket across the back of the bag.

The top closure is a heavy duty zipper.




The inside is spacious and
has 4 pockets of various sizes.

The best thing, it's washable!!!



The diaper bag coordinates
with the baby quilt I made.
and other coordinating baby items are
on my to-do list.

Guess this special baby girl is already 
spoiled by this one elated Grandmother!

Zig Zag Delight



Before tackling a diaper bag for my daughter,
I decided to re-sharpen my skills
by making a new bag for me.


Found this great 2 toned gray upholstery fabric
and knew it would make an awesome bag.


The bag features 2 hidden pockets outside,
zipper closure,
and several pockets inside.
 

The zipper pull is made from beads in my stash of jewelry making supplies.
The feature medallion is gathered ribbon and buttons.


Hoping everyone is recovering from Hurricane Sandy.
 We were fortunate, several inches of rain and some wind 
but no damage or loss of electricity.

Although, I'm ready for the sun to shine!
