Last week I order some upholstery fabric, with the intention of making more diaper bags. I really wish I had found this upholstery site before. Maybe then I could have made a different bag for me niece and keep that great plaid bag. Oh well, I'll just have to make one bigger and better for myself.
So I did find a few cute fabrics. What started it all, was looking for pink and orange anything for the twins. My SIL is decorating with pink and orange and we have been having a hard time finding nice fabric that fits the bill.
I did find these 2. They are a bit extreme, but for a bag, hopefully not so bad. I've been trying to come up with an idea on how to make the bag reversible. Still thinking. If you have any ideas, let me know. What is holding me back is the handles. Do you have to attach handles to both inside and outside? I need to hurry it up, those babies are not going to be in there long. Mom comes here for the DR. appointments and to have the babies. I see her once a week. Yesterday her belly button was sticking out. I believe that means she's almost done. That's my theory and I'm sticking to it!
Aren't these giraffes too cute? When my Daughter saw these fabrics, she said she needed a bag made with them. I think she wants one of each, specially the animals.
I really bought all this fabric, just for these guys. I love them! Elephants have always been my favorite animal. Someday when I'm rich, I'll have an elephant farm, with pugs as playmates for the elephants. Just kidding, but I would love to around elephants and care for them.
With all the cuteness, I thought I should get something classic. So pink and blue toile. Maybe someday I'll finish these bags and actually get them on my Etsy. This summer has not been going to plan. We have more daylight and I'm too tired and hot to sew. I seem to burn out about noon. So don't hold your breath, you'll turn blue if you wait for me.
Take care, Brandie

Fab fabrics, Brandie! Can't wait to see what you do with the toile and the giraffes - don't they make ya smile! We are having a heatwave of about four days in a row and that's about it for this cold weather Canadian! Ugh!!! Thanks for stopping by to see my sisters quilt, appreciate it.
