Monikered Baby Bag for Kate

So many of my friends have had babies... you may remember all those quilts I made before JT arrived? Well, for those new moms who don't receive a quilt, they get a baby bag instead. (And some very close friends actually receive both!).

We recently had two couples over with their children for a fun Saturday at our house (and at the local beach). We hadn't yet met one of the little ones, so I hurried all week to finish this bag... Thankfully (with Dan's help as he took care of JT several evenings so I could work on it) I was able to finish it in time! I'm also thankful that my mom had already appliquéd the name for me :)

All of the fabric is from my stash and several of them are actually from fat quarters that I've won in giveaways. I didn't have any matching corduroy on hand for the inside, and it was a particularly difficult week with JT (a fussy, reflux baby who absolutely hates his carseat and so never arrives at a destination calm enough to allow me to really focus on shopping) so there was no way I was heading to a local fabric store. Thus, I used some patterned denim I had on hand instead. I think it turned out alright!

And, here is the little lady herself! Cutie pie :)

I think my July goal will be to finish another bag... I'll be seeing another of the new mommies at the end of the month!

  1. It turned out very cute. The denim was a perfect option. Hope JT outgrows the reflux soon so everyone can be more relaxed. My younger daughter had it and was such a miserable little person for the first 4 months.
