Sorry my pics went a little crazy in my earlier post so here I present it again  Wink Enjoy!

Hi, This is my (not so) first post and I just thought I'd enter the bag I made for my sister as a baby shower gift as it is a messenger.

Bag Title: Tinkerbella (my nickname for my niece)

It is made of marine and auto vinyl..not the easiest to sew piping on without a sturdy sewing machine. The bag closes with magnestic snaps and the two exterior pockets on the sides also close with snaps.

I added this neat applique since we found out she was going to have a baby girl and my sister loves blue!




It has a total of (drum roll please) 9 Pockets! There are 6 on the interior and 3 on the exterior (one right as you open the flap that you can't see)
The interior is lined in a home dec fabric covered in a clear vinyl to make it easy for cleaning as well as the pockets on the bag's side.



The pocket also has a carabiner clip inside for binkys (pacifiers) or to keep track of her keys.



This is a picture of the flap. I also included as something fun a place for her to put pics of her baby (my niece!) and a pen holder

A Teflon foot helps a lot. I a lot used a wider needle (a leather one works best). Also, a lot of patience and a few band aids and wider pins (not the ones without the glass heads)

Thank you for your complements!

Vinyl isn't as hard as it seems. The clear vinyl was pretty easy but I recommend you don't get the super, super thin kind it perforates very, very easy. Meaning it will rip apart very easy as well. So look for something that is a bit of a heavier weight that is clear (not cloudy). I got my vinyl from JoAnns so it shouldn't be that hard to find. I hope this helps! Good luck on your wallet!  Grin
