New Bag..... as promised





Here is one of my new bags. It is a messenger style diaper bag. Although, with a few alterations could be used as an everything bag. The pictures show the front view, outer side pocket, inside view and back. This bag is approx. 14" wide x 12' tall x 5" deep with a 16" drop from shoulder to top of bag. This can be worn over your shoulder or with the strap across your body. Anyone taller than 5'5" may want to lengthen the strap if you want to carry it with the strap across your body.
The fabric I used was an experiment. I found a cotton laminate. It is your basic cotton with a thin clear vinyl coat on the top. That is why it looks very shiny in the picture. It is great for a diaper bag because you only need to wipe it with a damp cloth to clean. It is not machine washable. Although there are many positives about this fabric, it was very hard to work with because it can not be ironed on both sides. The creases from shipping were hard to get out. For this reason I'm not offering this fabric at this time..... OK maybe with lots of begging and pleading and an extra fee. :) I'll be making another one of these in the next few weeks using a regular cotton fabric... so look for pictures.

CUTE bag! I wish I would have found one that cute when I was in need of one. But not so cute that I ever want to carry a diaper bag again. :)
