It feels like Summer is already here in Texas. We've had some days in the 90s, thank goodness there has been a breeze on the days we've had to be outdoors. I probably would have melted, lol! One of those breezy days was on Saturday. It was for my niece's daughters 1st birthday.....so I guess that would make her my great niece....wow that made me feel old. I can't be a great anything at 32..... (*_*).
I love making things for people....especially my family and especially for sweet baby girls that turn one!! Once they're one I feel like they need a new bag instead of a big ole bulky diaper bag. Plus this bag is big and deep enough to carry diapers and wipes and whatever mom needs to carry.
This bag was one of my favorites to make. I love the green and pink colors.
I'm not going into too much detail about how it was made.....check out my tote bag tutorial if you'd like.
Pockets sewn on, straps ready to be put on.
I always add a extra little some to the bag. So I made this cute little stuffed "K" for her name.
Love, Love, Love it!!
Here's the inside!
Now, since it was for her birthday the gift of the tote bag doubled as a gift bag.....everyone loved it! Here it is filled with her gifts - clothes, a stuffed animal and a lady bug. Ladybug is her nickname and that was the theme of the party. I am a rebel when it comes to themes or registries....I hate them and I will give what I want. So if they don't like it...oh well take it back...that's just me! (",) But since I was in a good mood, I added the little lady bug, plus it was cute.
Here it is ready to be given away to the birthday girl!
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my weekly project!
Have a great week everyone.
