Hi everyone!!!!   I promised pictures of the diaper bag for my niece.  This is it.  I also made a sheet for the bassinet.  It all made for a really cute set.  I did expect he to have a bit more of a tummy since she only has 2 months to go but she just has a little pooch for now.  Of course I personally know that can change in a very short time as she gets closer.

The flags were just appliques on and satin stitches around and for the handles.

  I put elastic on the top of the pockets and eased it in at the bottom so there is some fullness there.  The pockets are divided so there are four separate areas.    

 This is the diaper bag and sheet (and book) in the bassinet.   I apologize for not having a better picture but I was taking them at the last minute.  The bassinet has been used for the babies in the family since 1922.  My grandfather was in WW1 and was injured.  He had rehabilitation and part of that process was to make something.  He made the bassinet.  My aunt added the hood and has been used for over 30 babies in the family.  It is a real special thing to all of us  and now will be used for another one.

Diaper Bag

I am finally working on a new project.  FINALLY!!!!!  It is for my niece who loves Disney.  In fact she loves Disney sooooo much they were married at Disneyland.  My new project is a diaper bag for her.  Surprise surprise the theme in her son's (yes they are having a boy) is Cars.  Gee a Disney movie.  I found some really cute Cars fabric which is what I am using.  Picture???  Yes I have a picture of the fabric.

This is it.  I have been tossing around ideas all day on pockets.  I have figured out what I want to do.  But I will do it with muslin first to see if it will really work the way I want it too. 

You will know soon.  My iron is hot so off I go.  Check back on the progress.
