Flower Power Diaper Bag

This fun, retro floral diaper bag definately gives a whole new meaning to "a baby with style!"

Made from a fun aqua blue, yellow, and brown color schemed floral fabric, this diaper bag is sure to pop! Coordinating yellow with aqua blue circle themed fabric for the handles, edge of exterior pockets, and closure flap add visual interest. This diaper bag combines style with function. The exterior of the bag features a pocket on each side - a gathered pocket with elastic top, and a flat pocket perfect for diapers or wipes. The front has a small pocket between the straps that is perfect for mom to drop her keys or cell phone into when her hands are tied up handling baby and a thousand other things moms have to juggle at once! The handles are wide and padded for comfort. The bag features an open-top design that is very convenient to be able to drop things into when your hands are full. A strap with a magnetic snap closes the bag. The entire diaper bag is interfaced with a soft fleece to give it a soft, plush baby look, while adding to the durability. The lining of this diaper bag is a pretty aqua blue fabric that has tiny chocolate brown dots. It coordinates perfectly with the outside fabric! The lining has a long pocket on one side that is gathered with an elastic top to keep things organized.

This cute diaper bag is perfect for any baby girl and mom who want to have a style that is all their own!

The Color and Print Controversy

When it comes to choosing a handbag, I tend to determine what bag to carry based on each outfit. In this post, I want to encourage you to look at choosing a handbag with a whole new perspective! Many people look at a colorful, printed bag and think, "What would I wear with that?" There are endless outfits that you can carry a printed bag with. If you're a little scared of diving into big florals and bright stripes when you normally carry a plain black purse, start off with a more subtle print or color. For a subtle look, try this: Pair a solid top with a solid or subtle printed pant or skirt. Add a pair of adorable flats or pumps and you have a classy, chic look. Now, to add a punch of color, add a colorful floral or stripe bag. Suddenly your classy, but simple look is transformed just by adding a colorful or printed bag that makes your entire outfit pop! With so many modern prints popular today, you can defiantly pull off a printed purse with a printed top, if they compliment each other. There are endless options in printed bags, from subtle prints, to classy damasks that work great for a professional look, to fun summery prints that go perfect with a cute skirt and sandals. So this summer, I urge you, enjoy the season! Don't be afraid of colorful or printed bags; they do match so many outfits! Play around with different color and print combinations. The possibilities truly are endless...

Custom Made Diaper Bag for Baby Boy

This custom diaper bag is far from the ordinary! It was custom made for a friend's baby shower. She's expecting a little boy, so I used a fun blue, green, and brown stripe cotton for the body of the bag. Chocolate brown accents help to break up the stripe and add some visual interest. The bottom of the bag is the chocolate brown to help avoid dirt showing. Both the flap on the side cargo pocket, as well as the shoulder strap pad are also made from the chocolate brown cotton. The entire bag is fully lined with a soft green/blue cotton, and interfaced with a soft fleece. This is a messenger style diaper bag. The front flap features a brown and blue stripe ribbon across the front. Each side of the diaper bag has a pocket; a cargo pocket on the left side, and an elastic pocket on the right. The inside of the diaper bag features a long open pocket, and a long divided pocket that has elastic on the top to keep everything secure. There is a pocket on the front of the bag under the flap as well. All these pockets are sure to keep baby's things organized! This one-of-a-kind diaper bag truly does combine function with style to create a bag that is sure to stand out wherever mom and baby go! Feel free to contact me about the one-of-a-kind baby bag you would like made just for you and your little one!
