Ellie is looking forward to meeting her new cousin!

We’re so excited to get another cousin that we decided to celebrate by making her (and Meggan too of course!) a diaper bag!

I used this tutorial (the same one that I used for my diaper bag).

Here’s the bag:

I’ve never done real applique before so I had fun with this flower:

I added this feature, fancy pockets, to the bag (using a technique that I learned from the Tabitha bag):

The lining fabric is really fun (and I actually found it at Joann’s, the outer heavier fabric is from IKEA):

And while we were at it, I decided to make a coordinating changing pad and wallet (from this tutorial):

We hope you enjoy your new ensemble Meggan!  I had a lot of fun making it!

    The only thing that was missing was the coordinating Ellie stuffed inside to visit Auntie Meggan. The trip would have been pretty traumatic for mom and baby, so I’m not too surprised. But she looks nice with the bag.
    Thank you -so- much.

    And, I love the pocket trim. It looks amazing. Can I send people your way? This is way better and worth more than Petunia Pickle Bottom. I’m selling mine off because there is no comparison.

    I’m not even going to wait for the baby to use it. 🙂
    Luckily, I can guarantee she will be here by June when you get here…whew

    What a beautiful set, Laura! As with Meggan, I love the pocket trim – and the applique – and the matching wallet – and the cute baby. Good work!

    Oh my goodness!!! This bag and accessories are so cute and such great color choices Laura! Wow! You’ve been a busy bee!

      Yep – thankfully Ellie is going to sleep around 7:30 now so I have some time to sew at night – and Nik graciously puts up with my addiction! 🙂
