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!


  1. Deanna, You are so kind! It is a very simple bag to make and very similar to your stroller bag which looks really handy. I'm so glad to hear that it is being used and appreciated. Sometimes I make the bag to house a certain gift and size it accordingly. I like the idea of it being used again after the gift bag purpose is gone. Maybe I will write a tutorial for the wipe & diaper folder. When I have a free moment :) Thanks!!!

  2. Very cute bag! Love that polka dot fabric. I'm such a sucker for polka dots.
