|Cupcake print diaper bag for Aaliyah|
Last Saturday, Justine’s mother-in-law hosted a surprise baby shower for her. I’ve had this diaper bag finished for a few weeks, but I haven’t posted any pictures of it because I didn’t want Justine to see them. Justine actually picked out these fabrics which are Heidi Grace coordinates from Joanns. I love the colors together, and I’m very pleased with the way it turned out.
I can only imagine how harried Justine might be when trying to juggle her busy life with baby, so I added a swivel hook on a short strap for the elusive pacifier or for Justine’s car keys.
Here’s a closer view of the front of the bag which is pleated and trimmed with the contrasting fabric. Those elasticized side pockets will hold bottles or cups.
The zippered pocket on the outside of the bag is a feature that is included in most of the Purse-O-Nality patterns, and I love it! Justine could safely carry her wallet or checkbook or any other valuable items safely in this zippered pocket eliminating the need to carry a diaper bag and a purse.
Here’s the happy mama opening her presents at the shower. It was a beautiful shower, and she got tons of lovely gifts! We are all looking forward to the arrival of the little princess.
Stay tuned for more handmade baby gift ideas!
