1  Pink Pirate vinyl bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by babygoinplaces on: March 07, 2007 10:34:40 AM
Found this fabric last week and had to have it.  Had to have some vinyl to go with it, too.  I also bought red and royal blue vinyl but haven't made it up yet.

I intend for this to be a diaper bag, but it wouldn't have to be.  It is HUGE.  The next ones won't be so large.  It has two elastic pockets on the inside and one plain pocket on the outside.  Two magnetic snaps close it.  The strap is adjustable so it could be worn messenger style.

I'm not usually conservative with pockets but this was my second time with vinyl and I didn't want to use up huge amounts of the pirate fabric in case it didn't work well.

I have a couple of lessons learned but overall, I'm happy.

3  Messenger style diaper bag recon in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by babygoinplaces on: March 07, 2007 08:11:00 AM
This is a new messenger bag.  I added the lining, 5 elastic pockets on the inside (1 on each side, then the back divided into 1/4, 1/4, and 1/2), a small pocket on the outside, a padded shoulder strap, and a pocketchanger.

My husband loved this but hated the fabric.  His suggestion was to use manlier fabrics and market them as daddy diaper bags.  I think he's right, but I would want to make a few more with feminine fabrics, too.

I also want to add a large zipper pocket to the outside of the backside.

What do you think?

5  Musical Tote in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by babygoinplaces on: February 28, 2007 06:53:00 AM
This one is tan twill with music fabric for the pockets and lining.

This was the second attempt at putting a zipper top in.  I looked a all the tuts on here (I think) and parsed several methods together, but don't ask me how I did it this time.  I am not sure I recall!

I didn't have enough fabric to put pockets on the inside.  In retrospect, I should've just used solid black and made at least an open top pocket inside if not a zippered pocket.

Oh, well, it is finished now!

6  Re: Amy Butler Nappy Bag & Baby wearing question in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by babygoinplaces on: February 25, 2007 10:59:10 AM
OK, here are the pics of the 3 I made about 2 years ago.
 is made from a polyester red fabric and lined with a small black & white polka dot.  It turned out OK, I guess.  I liked the black & white and cherries ribbon I used for trim.
was made from drapery material and lined with 100% cotton.

is also drapery material that has a little sheen to it.  I decided to add a button & loop closure to this one.

I was never thrilled with any of them.  The patterns I made up as I went along were much better for my purposes.  Plus, I wanted to sell bags and I was not supposed to do that with Amy Butler patterns.  

IMO, this was much better done in washable suede and home dec material:

7  Twin Baby Girl Jumpers in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by babygoinplaces on: February 21, 2007 06:09:04 PM
These are reversible jumpers sized 6-12 mo for twin girls.  

They are cotton and if you have them on with the gingham side showing, the floral print peeks through at the hem.

I put yellow flower buttons on one and green on the other for three reasons:  1) I hate to make exactly the same thing, 2) I think even twins should have a tiny bit of uniqueness about them that shows, and 3) I didn't have two button sets in the same color.

8  file folder envelope HOUNDSTOOTH in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by babygoinplaces on: November 27, 2006 08:34:22 AM
I bought this fabric back in the summer to make myself a fall/winter bag.  I haven't gotten around to that yet, but I have leftovers.

My immediate need is  sleeve/envelope/something to hold file folder and a notebook while I job interview.  This is what I made this morning for my 1 p.m. interview!

9  Re: Question about slings. in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by babygoinplaces on: November 27, 2006 04:31:12 AM
Absolutely you can use a sling with an older child!  They are especially helpful when the child is walking and heavier because you can keep track of them (obviously) without straining your arms and back.

I carried my 36 lb boy in one on my hip. 

Loved the denim--it was like a favorite pair of jeans.  The more we washed it, the better it got.

10  small sets for a diaper cake in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by babygoinplaces on: October 11, 2006 11:15:43 AM
A local woman makes diaper cakes and she has called on me a few times to make up personalized items that she incorporates into the diaper cakes.  they turn out so cute!  The set is a tiny (like 26" square) fleece blanket, a bib, and a burp cloth.

Before, she took this set. . .

And turned it into this cake. . .

Plus she had a nice write up in the Biz section of our local paper yesterday, so I hope she gets more orders for personalized cakes so that I can make more for her.
