The JoJo

I have been trying to play catch up for the past few weeks as I have gone back to work. Here are a few of the projects that I have finished. Hopefully I will be done in a few more weeks and ready to take on more orders. Thanks for being patient!

I know that most of my posts tell you how I love how projects turn out. But when I say that I love this bag.... it is true love. It is a new design that I will affectionately call the JoJo. It is a BIG bag that I am sure could truly fit everything you could possibly want to take, including the baby if need be. One of the fun things about this bag is that is doesn't resemble a traditional diaper bag. So for all you gals out there that don't need a diaper bag... this is for you. It is a sling style with two handles. You can tell from the second picture that the side of each handle is very wide and become narrow at the shoulder. There are three pockets inside. One medium and two deep, narrow pockets. This could easily be made into two pockets... one medium and one XL. For this particular bag I used corduroy for the top band and handles and cute Amy Butler fabric for the outside and lining.

I also experimented with a changing pad. I used a thin layer of vinyl over the decorative fabric and a striped chenille on the back with a ribbon tie. It also has fleece in the middle for some padding. I also tried a new shape for the bib. It is a bit smaller and shorter than the other bibs that I have made.

Amy, I just love that bag!! I still would like to order another bag, and I think that's the one I want. So when you are ready, let me know... you've got a loyal customer! Hope all is well with you!
