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!
