Nappy bag

My new Grand daughter needed a nappy bag, so I got to work, I sewed, unpicked, changed my mind, sewed unpicked and changed my mind again.

I was thinking on calling this bag my "Changed my mind Bag" because it happened so often.

Instead it is Penny's Bag.

It has a total of sixteen pockets, because Penny's mum wanted lots of them.

The outside was two fat quarters (the pinks) cut into three inch strips and the Green to give it a bit of zing.

I then cut six inches off the bottom and made that into the outside pockets.

The inside lining is the pale green check, wit the pink stripe being the base and internal pockets, I made the inside pockets a little big so lots of "stuff" would fit inside them, then put elastic in the top for a little gather.

As I said previously, an awful lot of mind changing.

Today my newest Grand daughter made her entrance into the world, Penelope Marie weighed in at 7 1/2 pounds. Toni-Marie and Mark did a good job I think

And I made a couple of Toilet bags too


This afternoon my oldest daughter gave birth to Penelope Marie, I have been busy sewing in preparation for her arrival. At the moment I am attempting to make a nappy bag for her, I am making it up as I go, doesnt look too bad (yet)

Here is the cot quilt I made, I will now have to make the label for it, now that I have a name to put on it.
