A bag for Adele

I am soon to become a great aunt which fills me with excitement. I am very close to my nieces so we are all eagerly awaiting the arrive of ????????. Adele is due in April so not long now.
I made a bag for Adele to carry everything around in.

There is lots of room inside and if needed I expect you could put the baby in there.

I have to thank my beautiful assistant Gemma for her help with this pic LOL.
I think there is room for a baby in there.

What a great bag! The bag can never be big enough
when you are carrying around with baby-stuff!
Beautiful fabrics! And daughter!

Kris said...

Hmm, great bag! (colours, fabric choices etc) I'm just wondering what situation might arise that you might need to put the baby in there?! But you're certainly right, even a big baby would fit in there! (Although I think Lorraine is stretching it to suggest that Gemma would fit in there!) Adele is very lucky to have such a beautiful bag!

Hi Leanne,
That bag is great, my daughter is fixing to have her 3rd baby and I think it would hold everything she needs to carry. Love the colors.
