Custom baby/changing bag

Will all the Christmas rush going on I am a little behind blog posts. I think if I didn't have a day job I'd have turned into a bag making recluse :D Long days at the moment and not much sleep, but the outcome is always worth it.

Last week I finished and posted this gorgeous changing/baby bag for my cousin Laura. She wanted something extra special and saw the bag I made for Nicola over at Smilernpb and wanted to know if I had some of the same fabric.
Laura wanted a bigger bag with more pockets and an adjustable strap. So with a little bit of adjustment and tight pattern placement I managed to use almost every scrap of the fabric left.
I felt a little bit daunted by the pattern as it had been almost 2 years since I'd used it last, but it didn't take long to master it all over again :)

Its a lovely size, very roomy, with a divider in the middle, lots of pockets (some for bottles and some larger ones) and co-ordinating grey lining.

I love the stripey fabric against the large flowered print.

I also made a wet bag to go inside but forgot to photograph it :( it was made from the flowered print to match the bag.

I plan at some point (when I get time) to add these to my website in a 'new' bespoke section. Those of you who have been reading my blog for sometime will remember that I used to offer a bespoke service but I chose to concentrate mainly on my collections. I am still toying with what kind of fabric I am going to use. This an upholstery weight fabric, nice and durable.

So don't be shy to shout up if you would like to commission a bag, you know me, I'd be more than happy to help :D


  1. It's gorgeous Emma! I love the fabrics and the colours too
    : )

  2. I love it - the colours and patterns are gorgeous - the stripes against the flowers really works well!
    (I will be blogging about my angel kit win from you by the way - I just want to make it first and show the finished item..!)
