My Bag Swap

The bag I made for the EB Bag Swap has reached it's home so I can now post some photos of it here!

Here it is all packaged up:


Front shot: I included a pouch pocket with red ribbon detail:

Back:

Inside: There is a zippered pocket, my first attempt and I was surprised how easy it was to do! I'll be including one in all my future bags now. On the other side it has the standard 3 pocket configuration I normally do, two larger ones and a smaller pen size one in the middle. I also made an elastic holder for the drink bottle, just sewed the elastic into the side seam to stop spills occurring (wish I'd done this before in my own bags, either mine or Jai's drinks are always tipping over in there!) And lastly a key chain on a strip of the same outer fabric to hold the keys:
I had a ball making this bag! I hope Olivia enjoys it as much as I did sewing it!

That bag is just divine Natalie!!! And so useful! The drink holder is a great idea - I was wondering how I would do a bottle/sipper cup pocket in the side for Austy's day care bag and you've just given me the answer!
