According to my “What to Expect” book, daily emails from various pregnancy sites, and friends who have been through all of this before, any day now I should be feeling the little one move around! Then I will really believe that there’s something in there. I guess the growing belly should be proof enough, but it is still pretty surreal.
On another note, I sewed a tote bag/diaper bag using some fabric I’d ordered a sample of but decided not to use. It turned out OK. It has two great pockets on the front for easy access to things like a cell phone, keys, pacifier, etc.
I think I need a more substantial fabric, maybe a canvas. When I make the next one, I’d like to put a lining in it also. I opted not to make the cute button closure included in the pattern. I wish I could say that I just didn’t like the look of it. Truth is, I wasn’t too confident in my abilities in the ways of button holes. However, I am off to a good start in the use of my sewing machine, and practice makes perfect, right? If not, practice at least makes better. Hopefully I will pull off an incredible diaper bag complete with button closure before November.
