queenofdiy, I sent the pattern pdf file to you via email listed at your website. Sorry it took so long to send it, too much work, and then going to daughter's basketball games at night. Let me know if it didn't work, and I will resend. Thanks, teddybear423 (Bonnie)
queenofdiy I have a copy of your pattern saved and can send it to you. I thought I had saved it, but couldn't find it before now (had to reboot my computer and had saved it to a CD). I would love to see your notes if you would like to share, just to make sure I put this together the right way. Also just wanted to say you create some really awesome items. Keep up the great work.
Padester, The stiffener is an iron on product that is actually for adding designs to fabric. It adheres on both sides when ironed on. It isn't really interfacing. I didn't have any interfacing and I would have had to drive about 40 miles just to get some. cindygert, the 423 is actually the id number I was given at a previous job. To them we were just numbers, not people. The only reason I used it, is because I had to write that number on every paper I submitted every day with the tickets showing the work I had done for the day. It has stuck with me and is easy to remember. The only plus from that job was that is where I learned a lot of the sewing techniques I use. I sewed there for over a year. It was a furniture factory.
I really like this. You did a really nice job, and it was so nice of you to provide a tute. I have been designing one that will be bigger. It will hold a full size coloring book and quite a few crayons. I haven't actually started sewing it yet, still trying to determie the amount of crayon pockets and which way I want it to lay. Not much crafting right now with getting one daughter back to college, the other ready for her last year of high school and working full time. Not enough hours in the day.
Thanks everyone for the nice comments. I did wonder about putting the decoration on the front, but as this is her first baby I thought she would like it. I haven't seen her use it yet though, as she is using one that someone bought for her. I think she thinks things have to be bought to be cool.
It took me awhile to want to make something, because I always shared the love of crafting with my mom, and she passed away in January. I know she is still with me watching over my shoulder and appreciating all of my hard work.
This is a very roomy bag, and has lots of pockets to hold all of the necessities for a baby. This was made using a tutorial by Gloriana. Here is the link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=240986.0;all...Thank you Gloriana I made this diaper bag as a shower gift for my niece. I'm not sure she liked it, she didn't seem very pleased. My daughters' both said they would be happy to have one like it when they have a baby in the future. It's made with denim on the outside, and the inside is a fabric that has baby deer, squirrels, bunnies, owls and flowers on it. It looks like a Bambi fabric. I bought this fabric at a yard sale years ago (a whole box of fabric for $5) and finally found a use for it. I knew that my niece was having a boy, and figured this would work well. Tell me what you think. Any and all comments appreciated.
Wow...I absolutely love this bag. It looks like a designer bag, love the ties on the side. I would have loved to have one of these when I was able to crochet, but I would actually carry it for everday use. (I seem to think I need everything but the kitchen sink.) I want one sooooo bad.
