No Pink!

BabyGirl asked me when she first found out she was pregnant if I was going to make her a diaper bag (since I had made one for Sadie).  

Well, duh, of course I am!  She had only one request .... NO PINK!

She really loves green ... the brighter the better.  So on a shopping trip a few weeks ago I saw these two fabrics and text her this picture for her approval.  

Then it got kind of shifted aside while I worked on other projects because I knew I had plenty of time.  Suddenly, her shower was organized and a date set.  I had to get my hiney in gear! 

I finished the bag a little over a week ago and then pondered over what size to make the zipper pouch.  Then I messed it up ... twice ... but I unpicked and resewed the first mistake ... and covered up (literally) the second mistake .... to come up with this. 

But then I remembered ... changing pad! So yesterday I made this.

And stuffed it into this! 

So, now I'm all ready for her shower (given by friends) in a couple of weeks!  

Her "church ladies" (BabyGurl is youth director at a small rural church) are giving her another one a couple of weeks later so I will probably make some burp cloths / bibs etc for that one.  Because, you know, that's what Mommas do!! 
Also, thanks so much to everyone who participated (as in, offered prizes) in the SewMamaSew giveaway day!  I won two of them.  See my prizes HERE
