Diaper Bag for Sharon's new grand-daughter, Liliana

One of the best things about Facebook is that it reunites you with old friends.  When my friend, Sharon (from high school) found out that she was going to be a grandma in 2014, she contacted me and asked if I would sew a diaper bag. Of course I was thrilled and said yes. A few months later she again contacted me and told me the baby would be a girl. It did take some searching and lots of emails back and forth but I finally found fabrics that would match the nursery and shower theme. The next step was to design and create a pattern for the "perfect" diaper bag. Many hours later, I think it was about 18 hours, this is my design and finished product. At times I had no idea where I was going with my design until that moment when I was ready to add the next piece from the pile in front of me. I was thrilled with the outcome as was Sharon. The best part of all…two old friends reconnected and got to have lunch with my new grandson, Aiden and my daughter, Karleen when we made the exchange. I am sure there will be many more lunches in our future.
