Sarah's diaper bag
As a baby gift for my friend Sarah, I offered to make her a new diaper bag. I went to consult with her on what she wanted (a long time ago) and I felt very professional because I went over with a stack of fabric samples and clipboard to jot down some ideas. Ha! Anyway, Sarah wanted something that was subtle that would go with just about anything and be appropriate for summer or winter. She decided on a monochromatic color scheme of grays, and I found a couple fabrics with gray prints for her to look at. Here's the finished bag. Noodlehead's gathered clutch tutorial, but I modified it quite a bit. I made this clutch larger, and gathered it at the top rather than in the middle. There is a removable wrist strap and an interior zippered pocket. I used this pretty floral for the lining to add a pop of color.
