What happened to this morning’s post? It was delayed, because I was happily sewing away on my fancy new sewing machine! It was time to retire my good old generic home ec machine and bring in the new Baby Lock Creative Pro. So far, I’m loving it.
This afternoon I finished up a tote bag for a friend. She’s giving it as a baby shower gift, which I think is the perfect thing to do with a bag like this. The bag has large pockets for everything baby needs, and best of all, it can be unfolded and unzipped into a soft, flannel blanket for baby to rest or play on. My friend picked out the fabrics. She chose a gorgeous blue paisley for the exterior and, to keep Dad happy, a pale blue camouflage flannel for the interior. I hope they love it.
I’ve got a little bit of the paisley fabric left over, so expect to see it in my next project.

Congratulations on your new machine. What made you decide on the Baby Loc? The blue paisley fabric is absolutely gorgeous! You must have a fabric fariy godmother that leads you to the best in the store.
What a clever idea and such a nice gift!
What a great idea, I love it! You’re right, this is the perfect baby shower gift 🙂
Wendy, I went with the Baby Lock because that’s what the saleswoman told me I wanted. I think she was right. 🙂
