The nappy bag of swirliness

Both my friend and the sister of He Who Shall Not Be Named are expecting the patter of tiny claws hooves feet and I have decided to sew stuff for them.

I found a pattern and instructions for this hip mama diaper bag on the blog A Mingled Yarn. Of course we don't call them diapers in the UK so I have christened it the nappy bag of swirliness

It's almost really straight forward except for sewing the corners which I only perfected with my second last one so there was a lot of unpicking and swearing going on. At least for the next one the amounts of F's and C's I utter should be fairly limited.

So here is the finished product of the one I made for my friend who is due in July.

I also created a tag by using a iron on transfer however it's not very flexible and I doubt it will stand the test of time so I might fork out some dosh and get some made so I can add them to everything I make.

I love skulls :)

I have a bit more time until the sister of He Who Shall Not Be Named pop's out her bundle of nappiness so that's taken a back seat as I get ready for the Star Wars party I am organising, however I will post pictures when I am done.
