I am glad to show my latest baby bags. I made them for the new moms in my family. Today my nephew came into the world so my sister needs a large bag.
The fabric is heavy cotton from Ikea.

I really like the style of those bags, as well as the fabrics you used. Could you direct us to the pattern?

Those are really cute bags. Great job. I bet you could find a market for those.

Very pretty and handy bags. Did you sew them on a "regular" sewing machine? You mentioned the heavy duty cotton and I wondered if it is okay to use with a home sewing machine. Thanks!

I stitched them on my domestic Pfaff sewing machine but probably not all the machines can stitch through multiple layers of thick fabric.
Anyway, a good needle helps a lot. I use denim/jeans needles #90/14 or #100/16.
