Swapping Bags!

Signed, sealed, delivered it's YOURS. My partner in the Amy Butler Bag Swap received her package over the weekend. Abbie requested a new diaper bag. This is the bag we made in my Simply Sewing class. I added a few extra things to go along with it for her baby. I changed the front pocket to hold a baby wipes case. I added the binkie holder on the strap and made some burp cloths to go inside.
Plenty of pockets inside to hold everything a baby needs.

Holy cow, look at this huge box I had to pick up at the post office on Wednesday. I was out running errands when the mail came, shuffled in with the mail was a note saying there was something waiting for me. I thought maybe it was my bag so I went right away to get it. I'm glad I did because we were just getting ready to leave for St. George later that day.

This is why the box was so big. My partner, Melody sent such a darling bag plus some little extra things like notecards, purse tissues and a cute little photo album. This bag is big enough to take to work with projects or take with me traveling to hold all of my personal items. What a beautiful sewer Melody is, it was perfect. She even overnighted it so I wouldn't think she was a flake! Thank you again Melody for such a cute bag, I love it.
This is the inside of the bag, each pocket was a different size. It also has a key fob that I really like.

I couldn't leave this cute thing home, so I switched out bags before we left for the weekend. It was perfect. This bag will get used over and over again. Matter of fact, after I got it unpacked Sunday night I re-packed it to take to work today. The ladies at Corn Wagon thought it was cute to.
