Over time I have found not every mum likes simple or plain bags to match a buggy. Some like a floral vintage look, which is lovely if they are expecting a baby girl or have plans for after baby bag use. From experience, mums expecting boys tend to be a bit more conservative with plain toning colours outside and a bright lining. But some mums just like to be a little but differnet and that is absolutely fine! After all, life would be so boring is everyone liked the same things.
A mum requested something for a superhero. She didn’t know what type of baby she was expecting but chose the bag style for her own personality and to amuse her toddler and daddy who would also have to be okay to be seen carting around the baby change bag. The following photos show the Grace bag made in grey suedette to match the buggy but with a superhero theme. The lining is a toning lemon so that the important items inside can be found easily.
Some of the features of this one includes two standard expandable external side pockets. these can hold a bottle, or even a takeaway coffee cup. This one has a large front pocket as well which is easy to slip your hand under the closure flap for a quick access to a muslin or a wipe.
The top flap is fastened with a magnetic fastener but with room so you can cram more in if needed. The single long padded handle fits over a buggy handle but is also soft enough to go over mums shoulder and next to a carried baby.
Internal pockets are within easy reach for mums mobile phone. This one has an attached Carabiner to hold baby dummy, teether or favorite toy. In addition a swivel key hook was included to secure the car keys, just to make sure they don’t get posted outside the letterbox by the toddler. Yes it has happened….
The back of the bag has a concealed security zipper pocket. Large enough to store mums purse or cards so they don’t get mixed up with baby change items. The idea is that you only want to carry one bag if you also have a baby to carry. No-one wants to cart around a baby change bag and a handbag for a purse. The internal pockets are designed with some for mums items and some for baby items. There are two large expanding pockets with pop fasteners at the bottom. These are ideal for stacking in disposable nappies or some lovely fluffy cloth nappies. As the bag is really spacious, a full day change of soft cloth can fit in, with space for reusable wipes, lotions and potions.
I had a message from the owner of this bag. She was visiting another mum outside her local area and attended an attachment parenting group. As she walked in the venue with new baby and toddler, a mum asked ‘Is that a Scrapdragon bag?’ The mum was impressed that it was recognised. But honestly, I only think it was recognised as I had donated a beautiful Grace change bag in gothic skulls to raise funds for the group sling library. The bags are still rare and unique. I don’t create two the same as every baby is unique, even identical twins!
