My Favourite Baby Gift

Tuesday, November 20, 2012

If you've been around here for a while, you'll know that my favourite baby gift to give is a handmade diaper bag. I absolutely love making these bags and everyone I've given them to has loved receiving them. I made my own diaper bag before Gavin was born and have since modified the pattern. Each one I make is better, so Stacey has the best one yet. :)

This time the fusible fleece that I used was the sturdiest ever, and I love a sturdy diaper bag. Also, I think this diaper bag has the most pockets yet, with a grand total of 8! 

(on the outside: a flat pocket on the back, bottle pockets on either side and on the inside: four elasticized pockets, and one zippered pocket)

I like pockets in my purses, but for a diaper bag they are crucial - mom's tote around so much crap with their babes, and you don't want to be stuck digging around for ages when you need something. 

I also stocked the diaper bag with all sorts of handy stuff like a swaddler, onesie, wood book, teething keys, keep-it-kleen pacifier, pacifier clips, diaper genie on-the-go, bibs, a baby bottle, a mama bottle, hand sanitizer, hand lotion, travel-size baby powder, lotion, diaper rash cream, etc., gum & a sweet treat for mom, baby wipes, kleenex, and... I think that's it! I would have added diapers, but the dad-to-be had a diaper party so they already have tons.
