    More bags

    Seems everyone I know is having babies these days and once I found this awesome tutorial (https://sew4home.com/projects/storag...rip-diaper-bag) I've been making these for all of the gifts. They've gotten rave reviews from the moms so they're fun to give as well because you're almost assured that they'll be liked. Anyway, I wanted to share a few that I've made lately.

    I work full-time so I have to tell you in my "time-slot" measurements. I can usually get one all cut out in one evening (and I turn into a pumpkin at 10:00pm so it's not like my evening extends to all hours!) and get it sewn together in the next. The changing pad and little clutch that I give along with them are not part of the original tutorial. I made up the changing pad (usually 12 x 20" finished) and I've used various tutorials for the clutches. The main one being the gathered clutch at http://www.noodle-head.com/2010/04/g...-tutorial.html.

    Very nice! Love all your color combinations. Thanks for sharing since my boys are now in their 20's, it seems that all their friends are married and having babies. This give me something other than a baby quilt to come up with.

    Cute fabric, and so much nicer than just a store bought bag.
