I am very late in showing you this, but I finished the Amy Butler Nappy bag a few weeks ago for my friend Jolene. She recently had a little boy and was telling me how she much she liked the Amy Butler Nappy bag pattern. So naturally - I had to make her one!
Pattern: Amy Butler Nappy bag
Fabric: Alexander Henry's Mocha collection
Mods: I added a key chain clip inside and I left out the bottle holders (she's breastfeeding anyway)
Here's a closer look at the key chain holder I added to the inside:
This baby used A LOT of fabric. I think I ended up using about 6 yards total. It uses canvas as the "interfacing" to help give it structure and bulk, and the pieces are huge. The whole bag is huge actually. It would make a fabulous knitting bag too... I may just have to make one for myself in the future!
Here's a closer look inside - I used three different Alexander Henry fabrics in total - all in coordinating colors. The lining is the blue circle fabric and then I used another floral for the pockets on the inside (although you really can't see them too well)
The construction of this bag is very unique. I love the way the strap completes a continuous circle with the body of the bag. You'll have to try the pattern to see the genius way it all connects. Overall - it was a great pattern.

Wow! Thanks for the support everyone! And thanks to :
for joining me in the challenge! We can do it!! I'll try to make weekly updates on how I'm doing. So far so good!
