I love it.
It turned out to be different that what I had originally planned to make. I lost the picture of what I had doodled midstream (like back in November!) and for the life of me could not remember where and how I was going to pleat it. Since everything was cut I decided to fall back on the Bend the Rules Beauty Bag.
I also adapted the Artsy clutch from the book as well. I made it a wee bit bigger, made one side have a flap to overlap, and
I'm diggin' this too.
It holds 2 or 3 diapers, cream for their bum, and a thin container of wipes.
Since my bag seems to be a black hole I made a zippered pouch using this tutorial to keep the little stuff (lip stuff, lotion) tidy.
I added a little pocket on the inside. Not because I'm clever but because I completely misjudged the size of my cell phone with it's sleeve on. I had to make another pocket for my purse about double the size of the original one. I hated to waste it so I added it to my pouch. Perfect size for my ID and a credit card to fit into.
Here are the stats for the purse:
Lining 23" x 15 1/2" ~ Contrasting exterior band 23" x 4 1/2"
Main exterior 23" x 11" ~ Handles 2 1/2" x 26"
Pocket 9" x 4" (original pocket size was 4" x 4")
Here are the stats for the diaper clutch:
Front side 8" x 12 1/2" ~ Back side 8" x 16 1/2"
Hope you all have a great weekend!
