Today's post is all about one special new little boy... Max
One of my personal rules I follow as a maker is to never create the same thing twice, every handmade project I start has to have at least a little touch of me, and they always have a story behind them. Some of the stories are very deep, with a lot of meaning, most of the time the story is not super obvious from the outside, but if you ask me the meaning, you better pull up a chair because it wont be a short story. Quilts are my canvas, and this time it had to be very special!
Now lets talk diaper bags.
This bag pattern is something I came up with years ago as I was in a big bag making phase, it's super simple, and I like that, I get frustrated with big long bag patterns, they are not for me. I put a yard of Moda Cross Weave on the long arm, quilted it with the Cobblestone digital pantograph and then cut the side pieces, and bottom, it makes it so simple. Oh and I used the black Kraft-Tex paper for the straps and zipper tab, it's a fun product, comes in several colors & it feels like a thick paper, but you can wash it and it holds up like fabric, and after some handling it looks a little like worn leather.
There is afun book with several Kraft-Tex bag ideas too, check it out!
It sure was fun to make all of it while thinking of all the memories of being Aunt Gina, feel free to comment with your thoughts or questions. Follow me on Instagram for all kinds of great weekly posts, or click below to visit our favorite online quilting shop!
