During one very long week where I watched jobs run on the computer at night, I stared at multiple pictures and blog entries on this basket - and made my own pattern. This basket is big. 13.5" x 7.5" x 7.5". But it's also the perfect size for a 'portable diaper changing station' gift.
The left side is stuffed with diapers. The right side has a blanket, outfit, Butt Paste, a couple of burp rags, and small package of wipes. (I told you it's big!) The outside fabric is a bottom weight fabric I found at JoAnns. The lining is duck canvas. Both layers are interfaced. I love the orange canvas stripes on the handles.
I finished this bag just in time. I cut it out on Thursday night. My friend V. came over for sewing help on Friday night. I was still fusing interfacing and just starting to sew it. She commented several times that she thought it was really cute. It was all I could do to make comments like 'I hope it turns out the way I expect'. She was so excited when I showed up to her baby shower the next morning with this basket. :)
Then I had to make two more with some dinosaur fabric I have.
