A new mama bag

When I had my first baby, I carried my purse plus a huge monster-butt diaper bag because going to the grocery store meant taking enough milk, diapers, and clothes in case disaster struck. With my second child, I had gotten over the first time parent jitters and downsized to carrying my purse and a small diaper bag. With my third child, I just upgraded to a larger purse and pretty much never take a diaper bag unless it involves an overnight stay.

So I've taken to carrying tote bags and finished up this little cutie about 15 minutes ago. Whew! It was fun and surprisingly easy to whip up.

The outside yellow ruffle is also a pocket. We're heading off to the big ol' county fair tonight so it'll get a good test run. I think I may need a button to help hold the yellow pocket closed when I start putting stuff in it. There's also a pocket on the inside.

Blessings for a wonderful weekend!!

  1. Cute bag! I also skip the diaper bag - did so after baby #2. Love that pocket you made around the outside.
