A bag for the delivery!

I have been working on such a fun project!  My daughter-in-law has requested a new tote to take to the hospital when she goes in to deliver my new grand-daughter!  I was more then happy to help her out.  Only one problem.....I had no patterns to follow!  So.....
I set out to design one for her!  We first went to Ikea for the deco weight outer shell fabric, and then to JoAnn's for the inner fabrics and heavy duty zip. 
There were a lot of pieces, but it all came together rather quickly!

It has rounded corners with a nice heavy duty zipper.
Two zipper pockets and one open pocket on the inside. 
Taa-daa!!!  Here it is!
As you can see, it is very roomy! 17.5" wide, 15" high and 7.5" deep.
I then went on to the fussy cut pouches.....5 of them!  Each pouch is quilted differently.
And there are 5 different sizes!  11x9, 9x5, 12x8, 11x7 and 9x5.  Each has a different lining also, as indicated by the zipper pulls.
Here is the entire ensemble! I hope you enjoy it baby girl....I loved making these for you!!!

I am linking over to Needle and Thread Thursday with Kelly at My Quilt Infatuation!!  She always has such great ideas and finishes are her site.  Thanks Kelly!!

Oh, my! These are simply fantastic. I am sooo impressed with your ability to design these...especially that big diaper bag. You should package this up and sell the pattern!!

That's a nice collection of bags there, Vicki. I like the different quilting on each one. Your DIL will be the envy of all the other moms. :) They are very lucky to have you to sew all this stuff for them!

That's a great collection of bags. I especially love the tote - a perfect size for everyday needs.

Hi Vicki, I am visiting from the blog hop - but am a week late, sorry! Really lovely to see more of your work - that bag is gorgeous and so are the baby blankets.

Such a beautiful bag! Love the colors you guys picked out (especially for the outside). You are very talented to be able to design totes and bags yourself!

Amazing pattern!

Lorna McMahon said...

You are blowing my mind, Vicki! You just dreamed up a pattern and Voila! Those bags are beautiful and the fabric choices are incredible. What other hidden talents have you got up your sleeve, Gramma-to-be?

Janine said...

Wow! This is a fantastic collection! Your daughter in law is so lucky to have you :)

You are pretty amazing! No pattern, yet you just go to it (I used to do that, but have let it slide--you inspire me to do it again!).

Love how the tote turned out, and hope that the delivery will go just as smoothly.

:) Elizabeth

Your bag is amazing - you need to write that pattern up and sell it! and all those fab pouches too, I love that you quilted each differently and the coloured tabs to match the linings is such a great finishing touch. What fun to have a grand-daughter on the way and what a way to welcome her :)
