So although this post is titles Army Diaper Bag I thought you’d all be interested in seeing some photos of WHY I’ve been so MIA! And even worse is that everytime I post I write “I’m back in action!” yet I still post every two weeks! haha I just can’t get right!
So those are some pictures of my cute little studio that I still haven’t quite moved into yet, and I will say that I just bought about a hundred fake flowers at Michaels to decorate my apartment. Usually I wouldn’t have gone the fake route because I’m all about being fresh and good smelling but I got ALL of them for TWO DOLLARS! Including amazing little glass bottles to put them in! I’ll definitely have to post a picture of those when I’m not huddled up surrounded by fabric and memory cards galore ( I’m in the middle of a photo uploading frenzy as I type this.)
But back to the bag I’m working on, and the reason you are all reading this!
I agree to do a bag for Raquel before I left for the summer but there were issues in getting the fabric. Originally she wanted two blankets done, then realized with three little girls around and under the age of two, that a diaper bag would probably be a better idea. Then with her oldest two getting older she thought it’d be nice for them to have their own little messenger bag/backpacks. Which I totally agree with.
So I now have all the fabric I need and have begun to seam rip all the pockets that I will need for this bag full of storage. I am finding that the army makes some pretty amazing pockets on their uniforms! Some have an all Velcro front so you don’t have to aim so accurately to get it closed. Some with a drawstring to cinch the top a little extra, and some just have a nice sized pleats in them so they are comfortably expandable!
I can already see that an internship with the Army design department would work wonders for my career!
I’m so ready to see all these bags come together and can’t wait to post pictures of the progress!
*****Each product is handmade from second hand clothing and fabrics and is completely one of a kind, I couldn’t duplicate any of these bags even if I wanted too! It’s my way of going green and staying in style.
