I received a request for a diaper bag. We consulted and settled on the Highline Tote by Betz White. The tote was the September pattern for the Bag of the Month Club. (link in sidebar)
The tote has a lot of interesting elements, so, as usual, I have lots of pieces to put together. I am currently at Step 15 of 40. I have completed the two outer pockets.
I love the way the fabric is coming together.
The main fabric is "The Fox and The Houndstooth".
Aren't they dapper fellows?
The lining is "Polar Pals".
Canadian babies need silver foxes with toques inside their diaper bag.
There are a total of 4 zippers in this bag. The first is under the flap at the front.
I have long had a hard time sewing the hook side of hook and loop tape, because the hooks tend to catch my thread. I figured out that if you take your thread snips and clip off the tops of the hooks in the seam allowance, the problem is solved. Why didn't I think of that sooner?
We had a visitor on the weekend. My grandcat, Mike, was staying with us. He was a huge help in cutting and fusing the interfacing.
