I did a 100% handmade baby shower gift for my new niece or nephew (which is really difficult, because it was all gender neutral Tongue) and I didn't want to buy yet another gift bag which would be used for all of maybe an hour before getting tossed aside for the more awesome presents. So I designed and stitched up this bag. It was the perfect size for my gifts and my sil can reuse it for toys or groceries or whatnot. Win win!
I didn't make a diaper bag because she had a Juicy bag from her last little one and I thought she was set. Nope, apparently they wore that one out so she asked if I could make her a diaper bag too....but that will be a future post!



yeah it is white, but it is also machine washable



I made it a drawstring top because I didn't want to buy tissue paper either  Grin
The purple is also the lining, no inside shots sorry. just imagine the outside as the inside only lavender and with out straps  Tongue



The beads help weigh down the ribbon an keep it from being pulled back into the casing. They are from my ridiculously large bead collection from one of my Africa trips.

Thanks for looking, I will be back later with the custom order diaper bags....hmmm wonder if I can find someone local to do some embroidering??

C&C always welcome!

This is lovely. I hate buying gift bags so much. They just end up in the garbage, this she will use again and again.
