With my friends Niki’s birthday coming up, it seemed nothing but normal that this year her gift would be related to her newborn baby (full disclosure: he is gorgeous and also happens to be my godson).
However, I still wanted it to be a gift for her (it’s her birthday after all) and after some brainstorming I decided what she needed was one of them big bags to carry all that baby stuff in and still look stylish.
I was strapped for time since I started late (I always do) but I managed to have it ready for the actual day. I used Amy Butler’s Weekend travel bag pattern, but as usual I didn’t really follow it down to the last details. I’m not very good at following rules.
The outside is a purple/pink floral design, and it’s fully lined with purple (sorry, forgot to take pictures of the inside).
A few more pictures below, the rest is in the Babybag for Niki Flickr set
