I want to incorporate cute products, handmade and pregnancy as well in this blog. So I'm going to start showing more handmade baby favs & preggo mom stuff too. But for now- know I tried searching Etsy for manly diaper bags and didn't really come up with any takers. Last night I mentioned to Z, maybe I would ask a crazy messenger bag seamstress on Etsy to indeed create the ultimate diaper bag for him out of any of the following vintage bedsheets we own & covet- He-Man, Transformers or Return of the Jedi. Z seemed moderately excited, then went to sleep! So in an attempt to find the right "manly" baby bag I bring some I've found just searching the webisphere. ( is that a word? Did I just make that up?) Cool!
First Up: Diaper Vest™ Wearable Diaper Bag - Orange (L) for 82.00. I don't think Z would go for it. A- he doesn't like vests and B. where do you put the dirties? um ew! But I love the color and think it is a great alternative to carrying a bag around.
Next: My personal favorite and one I think Z will appreciate. He mentioned getting a camo diaper bag last night during our conversation somewhere before drifting. This is from Diaper Dude for 59.99.
The next one I found is a variation on a regular messenger bag and just very stylish:
This is 44.98, the bookbag version is also available,
All pretty affordable,good looking and manly..but I don't know if any of them say- Zach, I mean look at my cutie..
he needs something as unique as he is. I won't even get started on not finding the right bag for me... maybe the magical seamstress will make me a diaper bag out of my vintage Strawberry Shortcake or Harry Potter sheets??
In other lands, my decision to stop taking custom orders was short-lived. As I just took on a wholesale order for 15 coffee cuffs for a coffee shop in Iowa. I need to get cracking! Luckily I had started some of the work ahead of time and a few pieces are already in stock. My sewing table's gurth is increasing with the large amount of denim aprons and appliqued pieces I have piled up. All of which I want to finish before our Providence show. Including making myself a cute preggers reconstructed tee of sorts.
I must stay away from TV. Either a book on tape, music or NPR is all I am allowing myself till the end of May. I swears! Tonight however- I think I'll be dragging the hub to Target to see what good sales they might have on pregnancy clothing. I'm running out of appropriate pieces~ I have a doctor's appt at 10:45 today. My nauseau is even slightly tappering... but I say that in a W H I S P E R... b/c I'm afraid that talking about it will bring it back. Shhh!
