Home Made Bag to match Mei Tai





I followed a tute on Make Baby Stuff for this one. Its a great site recently found when looking at Tracy's wonderfully crafty blog.

I altered the strap width/length and choose to have all open pockets but the size of the body is the same. I also made things hard for myself by having a layer of polar fleece in the body and strap. I used the left over cotton drill and some more quilters cotton from the Surf and Sand collection.

I think I will add a snap or 2 just to keep the top closed a bit more. and if I make another (for a friend) I will maybe try a tab across the top with a snap iykwim, or maybe a satchel type flap......maybe, lol.
