Not Just a Baby Bag

A Tote for All Occasions

(133)
Difficulty: Beginner

I have been asked many times to design a baby bag. Here, at long last is everything I would want myself in a baby bag: a large bag that is so great-looking and practical that any woman would want to carry it. Here's what I love about this bag: the colorful options (stripes, solid, or bi-color), roomy exterior pockets, customizable shoulder strap, a fold-over flap, and an optional zip closure. Also included: a cosmetic bag and a baby changing pad.
