The Perfect Mommy kit -A bday gift

As I'm rolling yarn over a cardboard to make some hairs for the girly waldorf doll... I thought I'd need a break... And I'm gonna use it to show you the diaper bag I did for my daughter, if you don't mind!

I LOVE it. I'm very proud of myself! I used no pattern, everything was from scratch and the front pockets are an happy mistake! (I wanted to put them inside facing the other pockets but... construction made it so they went on front!)

Everything except the inside bottom is lined and without seams, and for the inside bottoms I've trimmed the extra with fantasy siscor and it looks great :)

...Of course I was able to place one of my label somewhere. I'm getting crazy with those!

Even embellished it with a little flower, found a tutorial here :)

I've also added wooden buttons out of my stash. This really fun fabric was laying around in a box of old fabric my mom wanted to throw away! Uhuh. Not with me! There's enough to make myself a big enough size one (which I will do... I don't know when but I will!) And there will still have some left for 2 other bags!

Mariann didn't see the bag completed, but she was there looking on my shoulder when I was cutting my pieces, and she said "Wow! C'est beau!" touching the fabric and "Yum!" pointing at the strawberries... so I think she likes the fabric.

I've made a matching changing pad, too!

And some felt diapers and wipes. I still need to make some kind of a wipe case.

There's 2 pockets in the front and 3 inside.

What's great is that there would be still enough place for other stuff she might want to put in... her own sippy cup, sunglasses, playfood, real food, daddy's pencil case...

I used her plastic milk bottle and sippy that came with a doll to show off, but I'm pretty confident that by tomorrow she'll have at least the milk bottle made in felt :)

Milk bottle, Sippy Cup, 3 diapers, 3 wipes, one changing pad, one sling, bottle of baby shampoo and a little snack... we never know!

Can't wait to give it to my lady :) I still can't believe she's already two, and I can't help leaving you with one of my favorite newborn picture.


  1. That really is the perfect mommy kit! You have done a fantastic job.

  2. Oh, how beautiful, Andréann!Of course she will love it! Take pics of her lovely face when getting it, hapy b-day for her! Btw, when is her b-day? :P

    Kisses from us.

  3. What an awesome idea! I'll have to do the same for my daughter, then maybe she'll stay out of my bag!

  4. Love it! What a thoughtful, charming present and how much love went into it--it almost makes me tear up a bit.

  5. Your diaper bag is well made, I just can't get over how cute the baby is. Thanks for sharing.
