August Bag Giveaway

I really meant to post this earlier in the month but I don't know where the time went. I have lots of new items and a couch overhaul that I have been dying to show but I just can't seem to find the time to post. I will really try to be better now that summer is almost over. I am probably the only one who is happy about that but I can't help it. I love the cool weather and the smell of fall. I am able to get so much more work done when my sewing room is not so hot.
So to celebrate the start of fall, I am giving away my last side tie tote in Amy Butler's Coriander Clay fabric from the Belle collection. This is one of my favourite bags and it has been discontinued.
To enter just post a comment about my store and let me know what fabrics you're loving for fall. The contest will end at Sunday September 6th at 8:00 a.m. Est. Please include you're email in your post.

Amy Butler Diaper Bag

I was recently asked to make a diaper bag for a girl I work with. She wanted a big bag with lots of pockets. I had bought Amy Butler's Little Stitches for Little Ones a few months ago but had yet to make anything from it. I decided to try the diaper bag from this book as it was loaded with pockets. This was a very easy bag to make. I used home dec fabrics for the inside and outside. I wouldn't have picked these fabrics myself but they looked cute in the bag. I couldn't believe how big this bag was. It is huge and loaded with pockets on the inside and outside. The only changes I made was I left out the bag divider and I added a magnetic snap closure flap. I would definitely make this bag again. Here are some quick pics. I'm sorry they're not very good as I had to take them very quick before I left for the baby shower.
