I spent the time to cut, pin and get it all set up last night while the girls were sleeping and got it all done up this morning. It is a nice oversized bag for the beach I thought it was super cute. It is another canvas fabric so nice and thick.
I tried to do a double pleat style I think it turned out pretty good. This fabric is more of a canvas weight and is nice and sturdy. I also trimmed the pocket with the exterior fabric to tie it in nicely. Sorry its hard to get a shot of the bag on the inside and my girls were wanting mommy to get them their snacks so it was a quick pic.
I got this idea from Nero Fiore, I loved the first one very very much and made 2 of them up so far. Here is my creation, I just actually noticed I have to add the pocket on the front of it before I send it out to a mom in the city here.
I made this for my younger girls to wear as a baby doll/pillowcase dress, however I thought it would be funny to see if my teenager fit it and to my surprise she did. Here is the oldest wearing the dress as a top.
Sorry I do not have the dimensions of the bag but I will update later. I just kinda wing it when it comes to bag size since I like to make them various sizes often. Anyhow I picked this fabric up at a great price and its a canvas style fabric so really thick and sturdy!
I made this up for when I had my last daughter for my hospital bag, I now use it for my weekend bag to the beach. I am very happy with it, 8 pockets in total, enough to put 4 days of clothing for me and my 2 youngest daughters. I found the fabric at Walmart in the discount bin, its got some lycra in it and so very thick and sturdy.
I made up 2 of these so far. I am going to tweak the design a bit more and add in 1 more layer of interfacing to make it more sturdy.
The inside is lined with chocolate brown fabric, and has 2 big pockets for bottles. I am thinking of making a matching cell phone holder that straps to one of the shoulder straps. It closes with a magnetic closure.
