A secret project revealed...And a GIVEAWAY!

Hi everyone :)

Before the belly monster arrived, I was very busily working on a project that I had to keep secret :)
But now I can SAHRE :D

I was lucky enough to test Samantha from At Home With Mrs H's new nappy bag pattern!

Unfortunately for me, I had to sew it up on the loner sewing machine :(  But it came out great, and if I was being really honest...I have actually been enjoying sewing on the loner :P

Back to the nappy bag...I have really liked using it since the belly monsters arrival.

Packed and ready for its first outing :)

This nappy bag has A LOT of pockets...

This is a hidden zipper pocket inside the back slip pocket.

A pocket on the front of the bag with a magnetic button closure. 

Inside the bag there is a large slip pocket, a divided slip pocket and a zip pocket.  
You should also be able to see 2 elasticised bottle holders.

There also are 2 elasticised pockets on the outside of the bag, 
these are for bottles or whatever you want to put in them really :P

And here are some lovely pictures of the back and the front of the bag...

(can you see the slip pocket it has a hidden zip pocket inside!)

Front of the bag

I have been enjoying this bag for a few weeks now and I am looking forward to the time when I am able to get to the sewing machine and make myself another one :)

I'm also REALLY pleased with the fabrics I chose to make this bag in - mainly as hubby isn't embarrassed to carry it around :D

This is not the 1st bag that I have made from one of Samantha's patterns and it certainly wont be the last as her instructions are always incredibly well written and are so easy to follow.
