What was your inspiration?
I wanted to make something that was a little unusual - not the norm.
What are you most proud of?
The way people look when they see my projects. The compliments make me feel as if I am doing something right!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Read the whole project first. Then go shopping for the materials and get the right colors for that special Mother-to-be. The changing pad was not part of the diaper bag, I added that myself.
