I've managed to get a few other projects done in the last few days now that Hudson is on the mend. I needed a smaller diaper bag of sorts for when we drop him off at the church nursery or to throw in my purse when we're just going to be gone for a little while. Something to hold a diaper, wipes and a few snacks but not as big as our diaper bag from when he was a baby.
I found this great tutorial via pinterest that was super easy to follow. All I had to buy was a zipper because I had the fabric already. I used Michael Miller's Just Dig It fabric that I had purchased in Fort Collins over a year ago and never used. The inside was lined with some random dot fabric from JoAnns. I made it taller than the tutorial because I wanted to be able to put a few more things in it and also have room for a cloth diaper.
Another fun little thing I made was this sweet doll for Miss Millie, who just turned 1. We missed her party due to germs, but I hear from her mama that she loves it. Again, made with fabric I already had. The head and arms are from an old sheet. The body is a vintage sheet I got from goodwill awhile ago. The skirt is from some knit that Millie's mama actually passed on to me (did you catch that, Jennifer) and the legs are from a baby sleeper from goodwill. I had fun adding the skirt and the little headband and flower to the basic doll pattern to make it more personalized.
