Mama's Got (or will soon get) a Brand New Bag

My sister, Nannie, is expecting her first child this September. So, I wanted to make something special. A boutique-y diaper bag, perhaps? And, of course, she wanted some say in the design and colors. We finally agreed on this Amy Butler number from her book, "Little Stitches"

I got the fabric and facing the other day, and am going start the project today (provided that I can). I will post my progress.

I have but one concern after buying all the materials prior to reading the instructions. How does the bag close? If anyone has any suggestions please let me know. 


  1. WHERE is the Mother's Gay post????

  2. Once Esmé's dress is washed, we will pose for pics. Perhaps, we may even wear them for playgroup?

  3. the bag is to close with a badger tooth clasp. this is traditionally made using a live badger. more recent styles call for synthetic badger teeth. pansies.

  4. How does one adhere a badger tooth to the bag? Are you providing the badger?
