project...in the works!

This Mothers Day is going to be my daughters first. I was thinking about what i could do to make it special.
She had commented several days ago that the scrappy bag with the yoyo embellishment was her favorite ....so my brain started....and wouldn't stop. I made her a big diaper bag for her shower, but it always seems to be overflowing and she can never find what she is looking for. So i'm color coding pockets, making tethers for keys and her wristlet...velcroing' everything...and still working, it's HUGE. (just to give you an idea 15 1/2" x 24" and will have a give inch gusset)

Oh yeah...best part...the yellow checked fabric is an awesome weight cotton table cloth i bought at a church yard sale this weekend for two dollars! Gotta love a deal :)
What do you think so far?

Oh wow, I love the *haPpY* colors of this sweet diaper bag, Shelia. Your creativity is showing again with how you're 'coding' each compartment. Love it.
