stroller bag

I made this for myself. I am pregnant and that is the main reason I haven’t posted anything for some time. Been preoccupied with other things :) Now, as the due date is approaching and we started seriously preparing for the new family member, I decided that I will need a spacious bag for baby’s stuff as well as mine. We didn’t get it in the stroller combination we bought. Looking around I could’t find any bags that were same colours as the stroller and why would I pay at least 50 euros for a bag that is small and doesn’t quite match our stroller, or my needs in a stroller bag. So, I decided I was capable enough of making it myself. Of course I have pretensions that are larger than my knowledge but I will be stubborn.
This bag is part recycled, partly made from bought fabric. No pattern, I worked from my imagination. The dark blue is from an old, never worn (got it, never liked it) skirt, and I inserted sheets of recycled plastic I made following this tutorial http://www.craftpassion.com/2009/04/recycle-your-grocery-plastic-bag.html
It took me quite a long time to finish it and I am very pleased with how it perfectly matches the stroller colours, but am unhappy how flimsy it came out. It has 4 layers ! ( the face, the plastic interfacing, the iron on interfacing and the lining) and it still isn’t firm!

Material Notes

cotton and mixed materials

    Odlična ti je torba. Izgleda kao da je u kompletu sa kolicima… i ne brini kad je napuniš stvarima izgledaće taman kao treba, veruj mi (ja se porodila pre skoro 8 meseci i torba mi je uvek prepuna)…čestitam na prinovi ako si se već porodila, a ako još nisi srećno. I ja sam sad u fazonu šivenja dečijih stvarčica… sad pravim platnene pelenice, koje planiram i da prodajem… inače ako nisi išla u školicu u DM-u imaš specijalan besplatni paket pelenica za bebe i vidi sajt http://www.darljubavi.com/ tamo imaš isto lep paket a plaćaš samo dostavu. Meni su naplatili 200 din, ali sama knjiga vredi tolko. pozdrav

      Hvala! Porodila sam se pre 6 nedelja, i jedva cekam lepo vreme da krenemo u setnje i da upotrebim torbu, naravno :) Za ovo o paketima nisam znala. Krenula sam u skolicu, al bebac je pozurio, pa sam bila samo par puta. Hvala ti jos jednom, sve najbolje i tebi i tvom cedu :)

    I think you did a fantastic job on this bag! It matches the stroller perfectly. I know what you mean about using so many layers and still not getting the structure you want but it should work out great. And it looks like it will hold a lot of stuff with room to spare. Can’t wait to see the baby clothes and such that you will be making in the near future! Happy Sewing!

      Thank you ! I am planing on sewing more stuff for the baby and I think I will start with a diaper changing mat- the one you posted will be a good inspiration :)

      Can’t wait to see it!!! Have fun with it, you can even use PUL to make it waterproof, or terry would make it so soft on the baby’s bum…lol. Again, Congrats!
