With the new baby boy on the way, it was time to start moving away from the pink diaper bags…which led me to today’s Remix.
I had made Amy Butler’s Cosmo Bag before for Sew Mama Sew‘s Super Style Bag Swap (pictured here on the left), and I fell in love with it! Let me tell you, this bag is GINORMOUS!!! The perfect travel tote, overnight bag, or perfect purse for those of us that just like BIG bags. And for the Mom with 3 kids under the age of 5, this fit the bill for my new diaper bag. But as us Mommas know, the more pockets…the better!
Which is when I decided to add what I like to call, ‘the kangaroo pocket’ to the front and back – giving us our Pattern Remix for today!
I now have a nifty new extra large pocket on the front and back to store all sorts of things…burp cloths, diapers, changes of clothes, used gum wrappers, happy meal toys…you name it, it will get stuck in there! Lol.
Either way, I love it. Any bag that can possibly fit my eldest daughter inside of it is good for me!
I am not going to smile…
And that’s what I think about that…
Oh wait, wait….that’s actually kind of funny…
To make the Cosmo Bag with the Kangaroo Pocket, you will need:
After all, attitude is all in the purse…lol
