One of my dear nieces is having another baby.
I purchased my gift and then
decided to make this little door hanger to include.
While I was in the mood to sew,
I decided to make this bag to hold my gift.
After all when you are carrying babies from car to grandmas,
to shopping, to doctor, etc.
You can not have enough bags, right?
This was a plain white cloth bag
that I purchased in a package of three bags at WalMart.
They are fun to embellish and make great carry-alls.
What I didn't do was check to see if the gift would fit,
before adding the pockets and trim.
Well, I needed about another inch of fabric.
Leave it to me :)
So now the gift, the pillow sign and the bag,
will all go into a paper gift bag.
Have you ever made a mistake as silly as this?
This is the pocket on the other side.
They haven't picked a name for their new little girl yet.
So this will have to do, as far as personalizing the bag.
Next time . . .
I'll check the size of the bag . . .
I could have made one from scratch,
but I've got this finished and it is what I'm going with.
Anyway, I'm not going to another little Miss Mansfield, baby-shower, LOL
Oh, silly me :)
P.S. I am planning a Give-Away
to celebrate my 1st Year Anniversary as a blogger.
I know what I want to give, but need to get to
the bookstore and see if I can find it.
Be sure to check back :)
