ACU diaper bag

Looky, looky what else I did!

It took me six months to get up the nerve to finish it once I cut the fabric. Sure, the seams aren't all that lovely, and it could be structured a little better . . . but hey, I think it's pretty good for a first attempt. And no, I didn't sew the pocket on crooked, it's just velcro-ed funny.



I did some major damage at JoAnn's the other day and have stacks of future projects. Fabric, beads, and scrapbooking supplies galore. It's getting very crowded around here as my crafting corner is overflowing. I have visions of an entire closet, with shelves and drawers and counters and all that good stuff. Someday, someday.

Once my aluminum rings get here, I'll get started on a ring sling to replace my pouch sling that E is too big for now. I am torn as to what to do with that now - sentimentally attached to it, but wondering if I could sell it for anything. Hmm . . .

That's an impressive job if I have to say so myself. Bags aren't easy projects.

*Blushing* Thanks everyone!

No pattern, just winged it. I do much, much worse with patterns.

I am interested in the sling you want to sell. I am now two months pregnant and starting to slowly collect things here and there for when the baby comes.
