Another 'Buttercup Bag'. Fun, fast, and doesn't use much fabric. I'm trying to figure out a way to enlarge the pattern without a copier. I'd like to try one out as a diaper bag. Although, I still keep making these purse-sized versions. Anyone need a bag?

I'm really working on the pictures. Really. This is the "Buttercup Bag" from the free pattern. I am in total LOVE with this fabric- long ago I found a small less-than-a-quarter-yard piece and knew it was love right away. I am so glad I finally found the perfect project to use it with!
I still have just a small scrap left. So, more than the bag, I love the pattern. I'm glad I finally ventured into it. I will definitely be making more of these.

A fun new diaper bag. I thought the polka dotted one I made was too big- it is now our beach bag. So, I thought this "Hip Mamma" pattern would be better. Well, the bag is awesome! You may not be able to tell from the pictures, but it is. It has a ton of pockets inside and out, a zipper, magnetic snaps, velcro, elastic, and a ton of interfacing- even more than the pattern called for. However, with all those great features, it is too big still. I am again on the hunt for the 'perfect' bag. I do like this messenger style with the flap.
The pictures are, of course, bad. Beatiful batik look fabric in greens, purples and blues. Would you guess that the carpet is very blue? When they aren't blurry, the color isn't great. So much to learn about cameras and I'm too busy crafting.

A quick nightgown. I was informed that we needed a few more in her size, this is one of three. One yard of vintage green and white with flowers fabric. I love this fabric!
Six more diapers. Four are the usual, one is a VeryBaby and the last is a TWHipster cover. I really like the covers nowadays with a boy.

Three VeryBaby mediums. Can't believe how fast those smalls are getting too small!

A sz7, from the 'unfinished bin'. A closeup of the fun fabrics. Feels great to actually be completing projects!

Just browsing old posts that were never published and came across this one. It may have been published at a different time, but I didn't find it. Anyway, made this diaper bag in my last pregnancy thinking I'd need something very large. Turns out I don't. But this is a cute bag that is fine for long trips. The pics don't show the colors well.
From this pattern:
I know, I've already blogged about this onsie I made. But now it fits the bub. I have plans for another one, just can't find the time to execute plans.
No need to comment on my camera. I am now convinced that I am a mediocre photographer with a sub-standard camera.
On the moon today, we had much fun bouncing around in lunar sand.
Funny, they spent a good hour in total playing with these paper bags. I guess it is ok to forget your reusable bags at the store once in a while.
