This is Candice. (I was nice and stole the pretty headshot, not the picture of her at 4 billion weeks pregnant from her blog.)
Anyway, Candice is the good friend that I made the diaper bag for. I would say almost best friend. She is, in fact, my sister’s best friend. We are lucky to have her in our family. She’s been around us now for almost 20 years, and I don’t think she’s going anywhere soon.
Candice is my vocal coach when I get bit by the theatre bug and need to audition for a show. She even loves me enough to control the eye twitch she gets when people sing off key. She is one of the few people in my life that I love enough to make this for.
I know, it may not look like much, but wait until you get to know her better.
She’s made from laminated cotton. That’s right, laminated. Just wipe it down when baby stuff spills in it. It’s amazing stuff. But quite difficult and temperamental. Especially when dealing with turning and adding elastic. Why would you add elastic then? Well, for bottle pockets, of course!
There are two bottle pockets inside. Plus pockets for diapers and wipes. And because Candice is such a wonderful mama already (I just spent the evening with her and her adorable little man last night… and she glows with him) she deserves a mama pocket where she can keep her things.
With a zipper, of course, to keep her stuff secure. Three big pockets on the outside are ready for stuff to be thrown in on the fly. I love this bag. I just don’t love making it. But like I said, Candice is worth it.
