1  sha sha dream bags and my new diaper bag/backpack in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by DEmomof2 on: November 20, 2007 08:59:58 PM
I haven't posted much but I frequently lurk and get inspired by all the wonderful projects that I see.  I made my SIL a diaper bag in July for her birthday.  It was good for my first try (with no pattern or anything) but I definitely learned some things along the way.  (sorry, no pics)

Fast forward to last week.....I wanted to make my Mom and my sister sha sha dream bags.  I LOVE them!  Here they are:

Yes, I know the butterflies are upside-down....they face the right way on the other side of the bag.  I probably could have cut it in 2 pieces but I honesly didn't think about it while I was making it.....now I know for next time.  Smiley


Now on to my new bag.  I bought this fabric back in July....fell in love with it!  Since then my diaper bag broke and I've been using one of the free ones I got when DS (or DD, can't remember) was born.  It's fine but has none of the features I wanted.  So, I finally got inspired to make my bag.  It didn't take me very long at all!  (maybe 5 or 6 hours total including cutting pieces and adding interfacing)  I finished it just now and absolutely LOVE it!!  There's nothing more satisfying than making something for yourself that you love.  Smiley

The whole bag


My second zipper ever (first on a bag)


The inside (has 2 large pockets (diapers and wipes) at the back and one small blue pocket for keys on the side near the top)


I made the strap so it converts from backpack to messenger style.  There are clips on the ends of the straps and loops on the bag to attach it. 


I definitely made some mistakes but I'm pretty happy with it.  It was my first really big project.  I'm going to make one for my friend who's having twins so I think her's will come out great since I worked the bugs out on mine.  Smiley

What do you think?

2  doll's Halloween Costume in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by DEmomof2 on: October 22, 2007 04:40:31 AM
So my daughter is 2 and she carries her baby EVERYWHERE!  When I mentioned Halloween and her costume she immediately asked if her baby could be one too (she's going to be a cat).  I thought for a minute and decided that I could make her baby a costume....a mouse costume.  It's not perfect but she LOVES it and it only took about an hour.  Without further ado...

3  castle cake in Dessert by DEmomof2 on: October 05, 2007 10:39:23 AM
I made this cake for my son for his 4th bday in May.  He wanted a castle and I had seen a similar one in a magazine (or online). 



It's not the greatest castle cake ever but my son LOVED it!  Smiley

Wow, that looks really good.  I don't want to hijack your post but you mentioned only using a few colors next time.  I made one the other day with only blue, green and yellow.  Here's a pic of how it looked with only 3 colors.  I just spooned the colors into the pan.  I used a graham cracker crust (pre-made) just cause I wanted to try it out.  I took a toothpick and swirled the top when I was done.  I also used wilton dye.



I'm making a rainbow one this weekend for a Cheesecake War that my BIL is having for his birthday.  Smiley
