The first Mummy bag

Here is a picture of the first attempt I made for a “Mummy” bag for Raewyn.

The first Mummy bag

I wasn’t too happy about the way the handles were attached, but I also didn’t want them in the zip seam so I ended up doing another one for Raewyn.

The fabric for this one (cotton) was again from my nana’s stash, the floral outer fabric had been made into a skirt that looked a little crooked so I knew she wouldn’t mind me pulling it apart to re-use.

The inside has a large pocket stitched on one side and a smaller cellphone pocket on the other.

Mummy bag for Raewyn

My good friend Raewyn needed a mummy bag for nappies and other mum stuff that didn’t look like a mummy bag.
Here she is modeling the bag I made her.

And because little girls like bags too, I made one for her little girl as well.

One for Kayleigh

They had lots of fun modeling their new bags on the “catwalk” seat so we could get some photos…

This is fun!
And I also made one for the baby girl just turned one.  She was so tired at her party she was having a sleep when we took the photos, so here it is on the dress stand.

Here is a closer look of Raewyn’s, and the inside, showing the zip pocket and cellphone pocket.
