Custom Diaper Bag

Someone special is expecting and I missed the opportunity to sew for her first child.  What better way to surprise her with a custom diaper bag by The Selfless Seamstress?   Today my metal hardware arrived which permitted me to apply the finishing touches. Her she is:

The exterior is made out of duck cloth. The underside of the flap and straps are a solid  pink that complements the floral exterior.   In addition a magnetic flap closure was added. 

( My first time working g with a magnetic closure)
One of the things I love about the this bag is the water resistant interior that was made out of PUL (just in case a bottle isn’t closed properly.  In addition, I  included an adjustable slider (pictured above) so that she can set the desired strap length and a swivel ring in the to attach her car keys👍🏼 (or extra pacifier?)

(Yep! That’s my label.  Say my name dang it!  I can’t hear you.  Say it louder LOL)

The bag includes an exterior side pocket for mommys water bottle (or wine depending on how much the little one is crying on any given day) and one large exterior pocket big enough for her MacBook or magazines/papers to grade.    

This bag was CHALLENGING to say the least.  It’s my first time working with PUL, magnetic closures and metal hardware but it won’t be my last. 

What do you think?  Please let me know.
