Shoestring on

What materials did you use? 100% polyester black velour free motion quilted on foundation fabric for exeterior, pink and black gumball cotton print interior and accents, hot pink 9" zipper, magentic snaps and key fob in silver, machine embroidered free standing lace bunny,

What are you most proud of? Building texture through decorative stitching and adding fabric layers to form pockets. There are 11 pockets in this pink and black diaper bag. Some stacked, some zippered, some little pockets are hidden beneath other pocket flaps. A combination of exterior and interior fabric for long carrying straps can be worn cross-body, or knotted.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have you considered sewing a small pocket to the face of a larger pocket prior to construction? It's a great feature I use in my projects. Layered Fabric is Fun! When working on a project, I make lots of pockets in various sizes, and probably make more pockets than I end up using. BUT, how nice to be able to select one pocket over another depending on space, function, or just because it's so darn cute!

All I can say is this is the most sophisticated diaper bag I've ever seen! Your swirling stitches are also hypnotic. Now, watch this swinging crystal and say after me ... there are no mistakes.....there are no mistakes.... ;-)

Carol, you are so much fun. You are a great teacher and I honestly wish you had a weekly TV show! Are you working on any new books? Best wishes. Mrs. D (Shoestring)
