Son and his wife expecting first baby so I thought I’d make DIL a bag from a pattern by MrsH.
She loves owls so I made this from some fabric I had in my stash. Pleased with the result although I haven’t matched the pattern.  Thanks to all of you who have given advice about materials, I used car interlining on this.
I must admit I did think I was never going to finish, with 94 steps in the instructions and I didn’t bank on the physical effort required to wrestle with the bag on the final steps, especially in this heat! Going back to dressmaking now.  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]    [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]    [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

That is gorgeous!
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

That is lovely!  Labour of love wrestling in this heat!

Jessie, who is very happy to be here!!  :),  but who has far too many sewing machines to be healthy, and a fabric stash which is becoming embarrassing.

Lovely bag- it does look complicated. Isn’t it fun waiting for a grandchild. My daughter has 2 weeks to go. People keep telling me it could be any day now, but of course it could be 4 weeks! I made her a nappy caddy for the house and lots of other  things ( play quilt, crib cover, pram cover, burp cloths, hooded towels)  but have to admit to buying a changing bag. Yours looks great!
