Some Moms Carry Camo....

One current trend that I love in baby items ~ diaper bags are now often suited to Mom's sense of style, as it should be!  Mom's the one who has to carry it, after all!

Although I still sometimes see the occasional diaper bag covered in bunnies, bears, or something similar, the must-have bags these days are definitely more for Mom with a baby-inspired embellishment or two.

My husband's favorite bag that I've designed made a reappearance recently for a Mom-to-be getting ready for not one, but two ♥sweet♥ new arrivals!!  She'll be carrying her little ♥bundles of love's♥ necessities in camo....

Who knew camo could be this ♥cute♥???

13 1/2" W x 14" H x 5" deep.

Roomy & functional....plenty of room for diapers, wipes, blankets, changes of clothes, etc.

Cora & Kimber.....sure to be girls with their own ♥sweet♥ style right from the start!  =)

Created with an adjustable messenger-style strap by request.....

Magnetic closure, 2 outer pockets, 4 inside pockets, 2 elastic bands to hold bottles/sippy cups, and a key/pacifier ring to clip those items onto ~ so Mom's not digging through the whole bag trying to find them!

My husband took much more interest in this project than any others.  It's the camo.  Although I don't think he actually owns any himself, it seems to speak his man-language.  This time, he told me it was the coolest bag I've ever made.  I looked at him and said, "Thank you!  But.....you said the exact same thing the last time I made it."  To which he insisted he's never seen me make a bag like this before.  It's starting to freak me out a bit how often this type of scene replays itself in our home.

Sigh....Bless his heart

Every now and then, he comes back from Mars for a visit. I just wish he could remember the previous one when he does! ; )  ; )  ; )
