So I am totally addicted to Pinterest! Well, I figure it's not worth spending countless hours pinning stuff if I don't actually do something from it. I needed a new diaper bag so I thought this was a good time to use a pattern I found here. I actually made two. The first one was a little small so I changed the size and made it bigger. I put 3 pockets across the front for bottles and two across the back and also two inside. I also tried out my new sewing & embroidery machine (brother innov-is 1500D). I bought the font on Etsy and used PE Design 8 software to create Charlotte's name and resize it.

I was asked to make an item for the Canvas Corp & Imaginisce blog hop. I created this purse! It's my own design. I figured it's time to stop buying tutorials and make something from scratch. So here's my purse. I used the Sole Sisters line from Imaginisce and added in some Canvas Corp paper. I'd been waiting for the right project to come along to use their cow print. I just love it! I also used beads and wire to create the handle.
I love this pattern. It's close to my heart. I used this pattern over 10 years ago to make Kayla's first hand made dress. I felt it fitting to do the same for Charlotte and start a new tradition.
