A Diaper Bag for Baby Abbagail

I mentioned Wednesday that I was working on a commissioned project. I had one of the ladies from the daycare where I used to take my kids (before I had so many that the expense of daycare put me out of work) call me and ask me if I made diaper bags. I told her I had never made a diaper bag before but that I do like to make bags and happened to have a tote bag pattern that would make an excellent one. 

Do you remember this bag that I made for the giveaway?

It was made with the Bow Tucks Tote Bag pattern. It's finished size is something like 11"x13" and 5" deep and it has a ton of pockets on the inside. 

I showed her this picture and she fell in love with it and asked me to make one for her friend's impending arrival. 

She said the mom-to-be liked pink, purple, butterflies and flowers. I just so happened to have some fabric that fit the bill perfectly!

She asked if I could embroider her name on it. I told her I did embroider, but I was still a bit new to it and my stitching isn't perfect. She didn't care. She said that was the beauty of handmade items. I think I might love her :)

I measured the pockets of the one I made for the giveaway to see if diapers and bottles would fit and they were perfect, so I used the same pocket measurements for this one.

I delivered it to her Wednesday night and she loved it! 

Yay for a happy customer!

You know, I bought this pattern with the sole intention of making a bag for myself. This is the second one I have made and I still don't have one for me! Oh well, at least I'm getting plenty of use out of the pattern! I think by the time I get around to making one for myself I'll be able to do it in my sleep :)
