Sister's Diaper Bag Christmas Present

Well now that the holidays are over I finally have time to catch my breath. Today was the first day I worked on a project since Christmas! But I did want to post the major, big project I did was my sister's diaper bag. She is going to have a baby girl in February so I thought it would be a great present.

It all started late one night when I couldn't sleep. So it was about 2 am and I was watching Project Runway and just started sketching bags. I started with some handbags and then moved onto my sister's diaper bag. I thought it would look really cool with quilting (wow, was that some work!) In the end I was super excited about how the bag turned out, but have to say I probably won't do one with quilting again. It didn't fit into my sewing machine at times so I had to hand sew some layers.

My favorite is the inside lining. But you shouldn't look at it for too long because I know I was getting headaches as I worked with it.
The bag also has three outside pockets, one large pocket on the front and two on the side that you can fit bottles into.
Hope you enjoy it and let me know what you think!
