Hi Jenn! Too bad about the super shortie dipes. I guess you will have to save them for the next one. :) I cut the blue linen-y fabric out at the same time as the fabulous flower-y fabric, so other than adding the canvas to stiffen it, they will be the same.

Hey big sis! Nice bag. I bet dd loves it! Especially since it matches her overalls... Tre cool! I finally finished my diapers last night. Too bad they fit to 10 lbs, and DS is 13 now.... argh! Do you plan to make your purse the same size as dd's?

The monkey was a nice touch. Thanks for the informative and entertaining review. Bathroom shot! What a hoot!

Thanks everybody. I'll have to get dd's overalls reviewed soon. They have the same material...with grass stains at the knees. Mamamaia, the buttons work like this: Sew a button on one side of the bag about an inch and a half down or so. On the other side of the bag, loop a ribbon and sew it down so that the loop will fit around the fashion button on the other side to close the bag. Once that is done, in the place where you have stitched the ribbon on put a cute little button to hide all that hand sewing. Voila! Complete!

Thanks for the bathroom shot for perspective! It's a cute bag.

Love the bag and the monkey. How does the closure with the two buttons work?

Cute bag! Thanks for including the "bathroom shot" - it really helps to get a better idea of the actual size of the bag.
