My little 10 month old grandaughter , Aaliyah, needed a bag for her swimming costume, and towel. Her mum had been squeezing these items into her nappy (diaper) bag, so I decided to make her a little tote bag of her own.
I started at about 7.30 one evening, and didn't get to bed until I finished it!
Its made from a pink starry Cath Kidston fabric, is lined, and has a little calico pocket on it, with Aaliyah's name chain stitched on it, in pastel colours. I also found some little satin applique stars, and I thought they'd be ideal with the starry fabric. I also had some white bias binding with pink hearts on it, so added it as a border around the top.
I was pleased with the outcome, mum likes it too. When the little one gets older, she can use it as a book bag.
