I started this a few weeks ago for a sweet little girl
who is about to turn 2 years old. Her mama said
she is starting to get intersted in her baby dolls
so I thought she would enjoy having something
to stuff all the fun stuff that goes with babies dolls in.
Besides, a girl CANNOT have enough purses and totes.
So here it is. A diaper bag for a toddler. There are
pockets on both sides plus one large one inside.
I love love love the fabric. Its well over
15 years old. I have made clothes for cabbage patch
dolls with it. A cute little dress for a grandaughter,
and now after it has been safely stored for so long
a diaper bag for a little mama!
And a soon to be displayed sun hat!
There is a mistake with the handles. oops! But when
I took a good look at it, I decided I liked it. I think you
will be able to find it if you look at the pictures
carefully. Especially the last one.
Here is a closeup of the flower. Cute huh? The button
is a Daisy Kingdom one. I adore those buttons.
The flower is my pride and joy. The first one I managed
to make that look good. Thank you all of you who have
posted tutorials on making fabric flowers. I swear I have
read darn near every last one trying to make one that
looked good. I finally pulled up a tutorial, sat here in
front of the computer and followed step by step..
and ta~da I DID IT!
A shot of the inside and the pocket. The doll is to give
you a better idea of the size, she is 10" long.
Just had to set it up with the doll and bottle and cup.
I love it so much. I think its cuz I miss having a little
girl in the house. Their stuff is just too cute.
One last shot just because. I'm really happy
it turned out so good. Now if the sun bonnet
turns out as nice, it will be great and I will
have to do my happy dance!
I decided to measure the bag, its 15 1/2" long
and 7" hi. Thats with folded top.
I'm still recovering from our lastest trip.
Can't get caught up on my sleep! ha!
But then I always have loved a good nap.
I love buttons and bows
I love freckled noses in the shade of a sun bonnet
I love tea parties that are held on my sewing basket
I love eyelet lace, the bigger the better
I love small handmade crochet flowers
I love my collection of threads
I love full bobbins
I love getting the needle threaded first attempt
I love the smell of orange blossoms
I love you!
