I love this bag tutorial from Sew Much Ado. Actually it is a diaper bag tutorial and I did make one of these as a diaper bag a year ago. We used it a lot during Bess’ first 6 months and it was worn to bits when I threw it away not long ago.
A while back I thrifted this cool cross-stitch piece above. I am a big fan of kitsch cross-stitch pieces, especially if they can be used for something neat like Frederique Morrels amazing sofas and other pieces (I still have a dream that one day I will upholster a sofa or chair with my Grandmother’s cross-stitch pieces).
Here are a few images of the final bag. I am loving but there are a few changes I want to make once I get to my sewing machine again. I would like to make the pockets on the inside a bit better and I want to change the flowery fabric on the straps for something else.
Maybe I should just have a look around the thrift shops in Munich for some new pieces for a new bag instead and leave this one as it is. I have yet to decide.
