very nice, dorian!    the bag stands up nice & tall!  would it be easy to add a flap if one wanted a flap? rather than the main part of the bag sitting wide open, that is?  just curious . . .

and are we HOPING for a girl with all that pink???  we are certainly hoping for a girl for billye lynne!!!!

What a beautiful bag, Dorian!! Great job! and a smart idea to have a zipped purse section. Pretty fabrics, too. It doesn't really look like a diaper bag, and looks to be useful long after it's needed for that purpose. I LIKE!!!

beautiful bag dorie, and i am wondering the same thing...... its very much GIRL colors, but then, you are the mum carrying it so girl colors fit hehehe.

i am hoping for a girl so i can make some cute cute smocked girly dresses :) ok, i could make some smocked boy things too. but some men do not want their boys to wear anything smocked even if its a boy design.

wendy, love the patterns and oclors of your quilt too, its very fun and interesting to look at with the different blocks. something for me to aspire too sigh................

the kindle covers are really cool with custome fabric. did you make up the pattern or is it an available one? i have been thinking about making one for myself.

so many busy gals around here, i dont even have one finish yet!

Dorian-
Great bag-- fun, bright fabrics!!
Looks similar to a bag I made a few years back for a Christmas exchange-- mine had to scoop pocket in the front, but not the neat zippered pocket along with it. And it looks like you added accent pieces on the side too-- very clever!
I don't know who you can come up with all your designs, but more power to you girl!!

Thank you Ladies!

LOL Cindy, No, I am not hoping for a girl. Either sex is fine with me  But when I got this fabric in the mail, I KNEW I had to make a bag with it. And since I need a diaper bag most...lol.

Um, yes, I think a flap could go on very easily Cindy.

I was also thinking of just doing a button with a latch on one side also.

Sis, you can always make your baby things in neutral gender colors

This is a Civil War fabric doll quilt (15 1/2" x 20") for a swap on SmallQuiltTalk yahoo group (run by Kathleen Tracy, author) - I received mine from my swap partner in December, but I was late - I hand quilted the whole thing - and did I pick a simple grid?? no way!! not this gal!
I free handed an approximate 1/4" away from most of the seams and did kind of loopy things in the two large "plain" squares and the setting triangles on the ends. It's been labelled, washed, and partially machine dried, and almost ready to mail!!! I have all the parts to make myself an identical one - good thing, because hubby likes this one much better than what she sent me lol

I showed it to Bill - he loves it, and was rather disappointed that it was going away - I quickly reassured him, I had another exactly like it cut our ready to sew for us. Now to make it soon!!
