Bag for Baby

This is a bag that I whipped up to give to our friend Amanda for her/her new baby boy Cooper.


We didn't know whether she was having a boy or a girl, so I didn't attempt to make clothes for the big day. But I am sick of buying wrapping paper at the moment, so I thought I would just make a bag to put the presents in.
I used a print from one of my recent Reprodepot purchases, and some medium weight denim. Amanda loved it. We actually visited her in hospital twice, and it turns out she had kept the bag, and a quilt and a little fabric book that my Mum had made at the hospital as they were special presents (all other presents were taken home daily).

For those who have been to the Blue Mountains, you will know that not trip is complete without a visit to the lolly shop in Leura. We went for a Sunday drive yesterday and ended up in Leura. I bought myself a special treat in the form of a Rosy Apple. Unfortunately as soon as James saw it he wanted it. So here is a picture of James with his first Rosy Apple lolly pop. It kept him quiet, that is for sure.

Cooper is just gorgeous! I love the bag panel. What fabric is it?

James looks very, very happy with the lollipop.

Oh I love love love the bag, belinda! What a lovely gift for gorgeous boy.

And I love those rosy 'applepops' as we call them. Not only are they delicious but they guarantee at least 10 minutes peace and quiet.
