All done and delivered...

 ..to the baby shower! 

 I did not measure it! So sorry no dimensions! Making these bags is really more of a technique than following any pattern. I do not have a pattern for this bag! Thanks for liking enough to ask though!
 This is a flat pocket on the back.

 On front I put in a pleated pocket to handle fat stuff!;-)
 Inside has pockets all around plus a nice full bottom. I made a changing pad to go in there.

I find that by stitching the handle like this it makes them last longer and really makes for a sturdy strap. I did lay in extra padding on the shoulder rest area also.

Added the snap to keep all from falling out! Gee forgot take pic of cute label I added!

 Goodies for inside! Since we know it is a little fella, Jay William, was fun to buy some cute items!
Here is the cute parents to be, sweet Mama to be, our darling granddaughter and her sweetie! Baby is due April 27th. Seems lots of folks at shower are thinking he may come a wee bit earlier! We shall see. Yes we will be making a trip back up to the Blue Ridge when he does make his appearance!
Had  wonderful time with them, his family and our other grands that were in attendance. Sadly not all my pics came out well! Maybe I can steal some from face book...;-)

Was a nice drive up and back home. Not a lot of traffic despite a big NASCAR race in Martinsville, VA. Warm sunshine. Not over hot.
Just a really nice weekend to be in the mountains!

We are enjoying a nice weather week here at home too! 70's with sunshine.
I am hanging out wash on the line for the first time this season! 
No heat on or need for AC yet! Loving it!

Must get busy on some other items I need to sew up.
Some spring cleaning to do and we have to change our Easter decor out to some red, white and blue!
Have Memorial Day and 4th coming next!

Not even going to look at the flower beds that need weedin! DH can handle it! hahaha!
