Bag for Baby

This is a bag that I whipped up to give to our friend Amanda for her/her new baby boy Cooper.

We didn't know whether she was having a boy or a girl, so I didn't attempt to make clothes for the big day. But I am sick of buying wrapping paper at the moment, so I thought I would just make a bag to put the presents in.
I used a print from one of my recent Reprodepot purchases, and some medium weight denim. Amanda loved it. We actually visited her in hospital twice, and it turns out she had kept the bag, and a quilt and a little fabric book that my Mum had made at the hospital as they were special presents (all other presents were taken home daily).

For those who have been to the Blue Mountains, you will know that not trip is complete without a visit to the lolly shop in Leura. We went for a Sunday drive yesterday and ended up in Leura. I bought myself a special treat in the form of a Rosy Apple. Unfortunately as soon as James saw it he wanted it. So here is a picture of James with his first Rosy Apple lolly pop. It kept him quiet, that is for sure.

A Bag Swap and some Fabrics

I am involved in the Essential Baby Sewing Groups latest swap, a bag swap.
And before I have even finished the bag I am sending, I have received a package from Corrie!
It contained a lovely reversible black and white bag (I think Corrie has picked the fabric perfectly), and some fabrics from her RetroMummy store. Thank you so much Corrie.....

And the latest instalment from Reprodepot..... The funky stripe is destined to be some summery board shorts for James. The other fabrics are just for my 'collection'.
