Floral Grey Baby Wearing Change Bag

The latest commission is now complete, just ready to add a little surprise gift and pack it up for posting.  This baby change bag was commissioned by a loving Grandma who cant wait for the new baby to come along.  Mum had requested a grey bag, I am not sure whether it is to match a transport solution or to fit with a professional lifestyle.  Grandma had requested something floral and girly with embroidery.  Mum is planning on using washable cloth nappies but is unsure whether baby wearing would be a priority or an option.  Therefore the change bag was designed with the following features.

After searching for the right fabric chose this smart grey pinstripe which was soft enough to drape for the pleated design but very practical. The two large external pockets can hold bottles or other items.  The soft concealed zippered security pocket on the rear can keep items safe such as mums purse or cards.  This bag has a single long soft handle, soft enough to wear next to baby and long enough tomwear cross the body and go over buggy.

Inside the bag has floral cotton lining with two large expandable pockets for cloth nappies, enough space for several changes of clothes and a smaller pocket for essentials.  The dedicated Mobile phone pocket is located close to the top at the side so it is easy to find when you get a call.  Specific locating tags are incorporated to attach keys, the carabiner makes it easy to store baby dummies or favorite teether toy.

The top cover of the bag is embroidered with small daisy and rosebud flowers and fastens with a magnetic clasp.

Patriotic Patchwork – Union Jack Cushion cover Pattern

This was my first quick patchwork cushion made up using scraps of material.  I admit I hadn’t thought out the design too well so I took time to refine it and made a few more in different colours and styles.  Strangely it was the men in the family who requested these as Christmas gifts.

Then I made a pair in black white shades to match my room
