Camo Custom Orders

It has been so long since my last post. I am at the computer every day but hardly ever have time to just sit and post!
I have been very busy lately! Potty training and chasing a crawling 6 month old all over the place!

This past week I have been working on a custom order and I am so in love with both items!

The first was a camo diaper bag for a little boy. I love how it came out. The bag has 2 exterior pockets and 2 interior pockets. It originally had no interior pockets but I took a pattern piece from another pattern and used to make pockets! I used DECOR BOND interfacing on the exterior and FUSIBLE FLEECE on the lining to give the bag more stability. I changed the way the straps were made and the only bad part of it was turning them the right side out!

The second part of the order was a baby quilt! I choose to use a pattern from the moda bake shop and was very pleased with the turnout! I made a few changes to the pattern. I added about 10 inches to the length of the quilt. I only needed one extra 10 inch square to make the change! I already had the camo fabric for these orders. It was purchased at Joanns. It is a light weight twill and the pattern is Mossy Oak Breakup! The flannel on the front is from FLANNEL QUEEN! Each one that I bought was on sale! She has some really cute stuff! The name fabric is from Joanns also! It is a snuggle flannel!

I have learned one thing from these orders....I am in no way, shape, or form a quilter. I love the turnout but don't really have the patience. I love sewing bags! Some may be difficult but they are usually done in 2 days!


  1. Wow! Both are excellent ideas, and you did such a great job on them! I especially love the baby blanket!

  2. Those are cute! And an awesome way to get Daddy to carry the diaper bag since it isn't too cutesy for a guy!
