Sew Sweetness & Sew Mama Sew Bag Contest

Here I am, under the wire to get this Aragon Bag done for the Sew Sweetness & Sew Mama Sew Bag Contest. I just finished a night time photo shoot, so my photos were the best I could do under the circumstances.


Here's the front. I found this "Ray" fabric by French Bull a few months back at my LQS. It was one of those buys like, I don't know what I'm going to make with this, I just have to have it!

My mother-in-law has been hounding me to make her a diaper bag for a few months now.  She watches my twin nieces all the time and wanted her own diaper bag. She somehow has it in her head that it is cheaper to make one than buy one. Well, it is when the maker BUYS ALL THE SUPPLIES, LOLOL! ( It's gonna be a Christmas present so it's totally worth it;)When I saw this contest, I knew the fabric would look GREAT with the Aragon  Bag and enter the contest thereby killing 3 birds with one stone!

Here is the back of the bag.

Here is the inside. I totally LOVE all of the pockets!

I stayed pretty true to the pattern other that adding a few of my own touches.

I added piping and accent fabric at the top of the outer side pockets. I think it makes the bag look so electric!

I have to say I LOVE this bag and I know my MIL will too! It took me many many hours to complete, but so worth it! I read one of the testers completed one in 7 hours! Ummmm.........not gonna happen here;) I guess I'm a slow sewer!

I really love Sara's bag patterns and the next one I do will be from her book Big City Bags, the Fireside Bowl Bag! LOVE IT!
