Dema Has A Brand New Bag . . . and a Cupcake Winner

I didn't get to spend the day sewing with friends, but I did get to sew. DH painted the stairwell today so I had an excuse to spend the day sewing in my studio.

And what did I make? I made me a diaper bag! Yup, that's right! One for Dema to use when I babysit on Tuesdays. I used a cotton coffee print and embroidered orange and brown bottom weight fabrics. This is the first time I've used elastic on the pockets and plastic canvas in the base. The bag was simple to make. I was joking with DH that I need to make one in sports fabrics for him to use. I'm not sure he's buying that idea.

Here's the back of the bag:
And the front:
And the inside:
You can see I have a few baby items in it already. But I'm missing two important items: diapers and the baby!! Baby will be here soon we're told. DIL's doctor told her there's a good chance she could have the baby this coming week. We'll see!

April is off to a gloomy start. The view from our deck has been like this for four days now! Tomorrow we're supposed to get some sun. I hope so.
And now . . . could I get a drum roll please? I asked DH to pick a number and Codi at deathbydenim is the winner of the Cupcake Contest. There were many great ideas on what to make with the fabric. I wish I had enough cupcake fabric to make one of everything! All of the flavors sound yummy. I'll have to try some of them. Stay tuned, I just might do that.

Happy Stitching!
Sweet P

Diapers will come once baby comes, and yeah I'm hoping it will be soon. I think you should make a sports one for him.
