A new bag for Melanie

So, again without purchasing a pattern, I came up with this bag for Melanie.  The idea was to create a nice, but small diaper bag.  I hope she likes it.  I think I ripped out one seam, so overall I think my pattern worked.  Although, next time I might make the sides a little wider, but this bag should easily hold a couple sippy cups, diapers and personal items.  I’d also like to figure out how to put in a zipper closure on top.

I’ve had a bit of a bad attitude lately.  I noticed that I wasn’t sewing, exercising, or even cooking good dinners.  All sure signs that I was slipping into a slump.  Sewing this bag helped me feel creative again and I am pretty happy about how it turned out.

 This is just life with Benton.  He did this during lunch to pull my attention from sewing and back to him.  Good thing he is so cute!
