A Gift in Use
Lately this baby gift we got when Sammy was born has been getting a lot of use. A dear friend that we don't get to see very much made it - isn't it cute? She did a great job, lining the bag and adding some satin ribbon trim on the small folder. I've been using the bag for Sammy's overnight bag, so we've been pulling it out quite a bit. And the small envelope-bag holds an emergency stash of diapers and wipes in the map pocket of my car - handy for when I didn't quite plan correctly!
After sewing my stroller tote (which is still so handy!), I can see how this went together and it seems like a fabulous handmade gift to make for others - I know I'm enjoying mine!
