My enthusiasm for the upcoming baby is waning, I'm sure it will return once the wee one arrives.
None-the-less I have been busy sewing ..... remember 2 weeks ago pics of receiving blankets and fabric for a diaper bag ? On the left is the front of the bag with a flat elasticized pocket. On the right is the bag with two , 3 dimensional pockets with magnetic closures. I love the lime green ruffle but had one heck of a time getting this bag made. Now, I'm no novice to bag making, as my blog readers are aware, but this pattern (Pellon's Frou Frou bag) was rather poorly written. Saying nothing of the typos and grammar issues, there were definitely steps missing, and the pictures, which I totally rely on, were rather poor! Of course it could just be me - I'm known for not reading patterns very well:(. I put a zippered pocket and an open pocket on the inside, and attached a clip for keys etc. The outer flap also has a magnetic closure, and on the inside a label (Handmade by ....). I really hope she likes it and finds it useful - occasionally ?
It's Downton Abbey night tonight ......
