After enjoying a nice, long weekend in the Upstate, it was back to our world on Tuesday. Since then, I have worked on making two bags for my sister. She loves her gathered clutch I made her over a year ago. Unfortunately, it looks dingy and she has too much in it. She requested a larger bag that can hold her money and receipts. After seeing the Wide Mouth Bag on Noodlehead, I figured this may be the one. The zipper is attached in a special way so that the top of the bag opens very wide.
Below you can see the two different bags I made. The top one follows the original tutorial as far as size. However, I decided that it was too tall for her to keep her money in. I decided to make another bag two inches shorter. The bottom is what it turned out like. I am happy with the bag, but do not like the way the divider did in the middle. I will have to keep working on that. Overall, the bag will serve its purpose. Now I have to make another one for her friend just like the little one.
Since coming back home, I have spent a lot of time thinking about what we still need for baby. One thing I knew we needed were some burp cloths. I have been saving this blue, green, and gray flannel for a special project, and I believe this is it! The green I am using to make some cloth wipes that we can use for anything. I also found some white chenille and some blue terrycloth that I am going to use for the back of some of the cloths. I can't wait for baby to be here and be able to use all these things! Only 8 more weeks until his due date! :)
