Weekend Project

Oh, it sure feels good to start and finish a weekend project. Usually, I begin a project with gusto and get sidetracked by something. Then three months later I pick it up out of shame and do a half-assed job finishing it up. Not this time, my friends! Here is the diaper bag I stitched up for myself this weekend. I've made this style bag before - remember this? I made it for my brother's girlfriend and used the Amy Butler 'Birdie Sling' pattern. As for this new bag, I particularly love the fabric I found for the handle. It's a dictionary print with words like "faith", "noble", "peace", "courage", "hope", followed by their actual definition. I thought this would be a good print for someone who is about to be lugging an infant around. You like?

It looks great! Is the material newspaper-like print? Do I see correctly?

Love the fabrics you chose for your bag especially the newsprint one. Very cute! I made the same bag but went for a very basic look. See pics here http://fridaysoff.ca/2010/06/01/my-new-bag/
