...and I posted a message on Facebook ( Sewing totes & bags group) ...nothing it is a week and I haven't heard back...I am sure she doesn't even know she won..pity!

Nappy Bag.... & Giveaway!

Samantha of At Home with Mrs.H. is expecting a what kind of bag did she design next...a Nappy Bag of course!!
When Samantha asked me about testing the pattern I first said no...I don't need a nappy bag and most of my customers are past the baby stage.....but then I got to thinking....who say it has to be a Nappy Bag....the design of the bag is great.. a few changes ....something with red polka dots maybe ??

As I was trying to decide which fabrics to use...Irmgard from NaehstuebchenUntermDach sent me some fabrics to play with....Perfect timing...the red Polka dots were tossed aside and I decided to turn the Nappy Bag into a Unisex / Male weekend bag...
I took the World map fabric...combined it with a yummy chocolate brown pleater and a new bag was born!!!
The front has a large flap pocket...perfect for your iPad...
   The back side has a large drop in pocket and inside that pocket is a hidden zipper...

Normally the sides have gathered pockets for baby bottles...but I left them off...I figured a man would prefer a slick smooth bag.
I added a two way zipper...
 On the inside I omitted all of the gathered pockets and just added simple pockets...more masculine.
This bag is surprisingly large and can hold tons of stuff...even Nappies if you like ! 

This goes to show you that changing the fabric can totally change the pattern...from Nappy to weekend bag....

Now ...who wants to win the pattern??!!!
......just leave a comment telling me if you'd make it a nappy bag or break the rules like I did and your name will be entered in the Giveaway! 
The lucky winner will be picked on Monday August 25th, 2014 !

If you can't wait that long to get the pattern..Samantha is offering all my friends / readers a 10% discount on any purchase from her store, patterns & hardware...just use the code ATHOMEWITHMRSH10 for the discount!

P.S...I just saw that Maria of MiaCreates is also having a Giveaway on the sure to pop over and enter and increase your chances of winning !
