This cupcake fabric has been in my stash for a long time and I have finally decided what to make with it. A little doll diaper bag and quilt set.
I used Jennie’s tutorial for Benartex that she did a couple of weeks ago and made a few changes, just a few. I added a little binding on the top of the bag body and did not add the gathers on the flap, I thought the cupcakes were so cute. I did add the rick rack and really like it.
This is the baby doll diaper bag and quilt together. I had some cute pink fabric that I paired with the cupcake fabric and used it for lining, binding, handles and on the front/back of the quilt. I have to hurry and get these in the mail so that they arrive in time for Christmas.
I also made a zipper pouch for the first time. I was so pleased at how easy it was. I still need a lot of practice to get those little tabs on the ends for the zipper to look neater. I will be making more of these little bags in the future. It is also a gift.
Along with a few extras that will come in handy for someone who loves to knit.
This is really the best thing ever, seam tape, we use it to hold the zippers in place while sewing. I really liked the way it held it just where I wanted it. Also, if you cut it in half length-wise it will not show after the zipper is sewn in. Plus, it makes it go a lot further that way. I forgot and didn’t so I had to tear it away, it did tear but would have been so much better if I had remembered to cut it first.
I am having so much fun sewing my last-minute gifts!! Just a few more things to check off my list and then I will be ready to do some holiday baking. What about you, what are you making in these last few days we have until Christmas? I would love to hear about them.
Hope you are having a great week!!
