Happy Birthday Diaper Bag

A friend of mine who just had a birthday is also pregnant with her first baby, due exactly a month before mine! I love to celebrate babies but especially someone's first. I decided I would make her a diaper bag.
I used the same beautiful wool felt that I used on my pillows, She had told me that she wanted her baby stuff to be Brown and Green so it worked out perfectly. I still feel a little weird giving gifts I made, but I really do love this so hopefully She will too.

If you are a beginner sewer try wool felt for projects like this it is very easy to use, unlike the corduroy I used on the strap and bottom of the bag, or the flannel I used
for the rosettes it doesn't fray. {yay}

Purses and pillow covers are two projects that are easier than you think and make great christmas gifts!
Also check out NieNie's New Calender for sale, I know I would mind getting something like this for Christmas.

This looks really great!
You know I would really love to sew with wool felt - but over here in Germany it is really expensive!
By the way ... I was just thinking as you mentioned you still feel uncomfortable when giving homemade gifts ... what happened to the challenge you did earlier this year? I think the stuff you made looked great! But I think there never was a post about the reactions of people or anything ... or did I miss that?

I have sent some and I am sending more this week actually. I am terribly late in sending them, life just got crazy.
