Diaper Bag Revamp
I'd been on the lookout for a new diaper bag for the past few months and just didn't feel like plunking down the extra cash for one. And I couldn't find one that I really loved.
One day I remembered that I had gotten a plain black one from the hospital when Jack was born that I had kept, and my wheels started turning.
Here's what it looked like...basic, black, boring.
I pulled out the trusty sewing machine and sewed some ruffles from my stash of leftover fabric.
I hot-glued the ruffles onto the bag and also glued on the flower (which I can always change out if I get tired of the pink color).
I found the embroidery letters from Hobby Lobby and used fabric glue to glue them to the bag - they are my initials.
And I kinda like how it turned out! It was free, so if I get tired of the bag, at least I didn't spend any money on it!
You know how I love a good (and cute!) bargain! :)

Adorable and very creative! There's nothing as satisfying as making something out of nothing. :-)ReplyDelete
i don't carry a diaper bag around too often, not as much as i probably should. but, if i did, i would ask you to make one of these. it is so adorable and i actually have the same black hospital diaper bag.ReplyDelete
