Potty Training in 3-D

Here's my sweet Little D, one of the first times he sat on the potty seat. G'pa has already started him standing up, as "men do." Middle D never wanted to use the potty chair, so I decided I would try just the seat. Little D was as proud as he could be to sit there for about 30 seconds, then decided he was finished and wanted down. Oh well, it will all fall into place for him soon.

Yesterday, he actually told me he did his business, in the diaper of course, after he did it. It's a start, baby steps!

Fruit Ladies Bag

My latest creation is this cute bag, inspired by the Fruit Ladies fabric by Elizabeth's Studio. The motifs are fun, the ladies are made from fruit and they are at the beach. There are colorful beach towels and the fruit is brightly colored. It makes me smile to look at the fabrics. The diagonal lines in the fabric determined the shape of the bag, so that I could show off the pictures of the ladies to the best advantage. I put pockets around the inside and one on the outside, between the straps. I put a zipper at the opening to keep everything safe inside. The whole thing was interfaced with Decor-Bond, so it will hold its shape very well. Visit my shop, Bag & Baggage on Etsy, if you are interested in purchasing the bag or pattern.
