My new Diaper bag!

Hi everyone! Hope you're having a great summer... The weather cooled down here so my night are a little less painful, but I can't wait for that back pain to go!

My diaper bag is finally done! At the slow rate of about 4-5 stitches a night, since we're spending our days elsewhere c.i. where someone can help me take care of my lady. My iron is still incredibly low, and the midwife are very puzzled that it didn't went up after 2 months of taking supplement. Now I'm on those nasty ones that taste really really bad and makes my acid reflux worse, but there's no other side effect which I'm grateful not to have!

I did the diaper bag from scratch, no pattern, only a little sketch to know where I was going...

I ended up making 6 pockets plus 2 for my camera and lentil (those are full of codel to protect my camera :) )

I did the same flowers than Mariann's play diaper bag, only I've made a plushie center instead of buttons.

I love it. I even put codel in the straps for extra comfort :)

.... I'm counting the days now! Shouldn't be long.....


  1. What a great bag! I'm sure you were only slightly exaggerating about 4 or 5 stitches a night - it's so hard to concentrate on anything when you're feeling lousy. Be sure to give us a report once you've been using the new bag for a while.

    And we're all counting the days with you!


  2. That is an amazing diaper bag, so much nicer than what they have in the stores!!! :)

    Baby will be here before you know it and the new bag will get lots of use. Stay healthy and as comfortable as possible till then.

  3. This is totally you! Love the simple style that make it look gorgeous. My diaper bag was also hand-made by my middle sister, I still have it.

    You're awesome with needles! Can't wait to see your new sweet baby, hang in there! :o)

    Love from us.

  4. Concerning this iron thing... supplements never help me when it comes to low iron levels, I always have to go to my special diet (lots of meat, broccoli, cashew nuts, walnuts, amaranth, ...). Have you tried this? The last time my iron was really low (to the point where I was constantly feeling nauseous), a bowl of amaranth cereals, a handful of nuts in the afternoon and a bit of meat or broccoli in the evening took care of this.
