Personalized Baby Bag by Lorena


Well, hello SRM friends! It's been a while since I stopped by the blog - you know, having a baby and blablabla, lol!- and I'm really glad to be back. And of course, surrounded as I am by diapers, pacifiers, cozy blankets and onesies these days,  I couldn't help but make a baby project. I know I will be using this a lot!
Let me introduce you the personalized bag I made for my daughter. It was easy as pie thanks to SRM Rustic Linen Bags and the gorgeous floral ribbon.

I started by ironing some Heat n Bond on the back of the ribbon to give it stability so I could die cut it and then adhere it to the bag.

Once the ribbon was stiffened, I die cut the letters with an alphabet die set from my stash and ironed the ribbon in place on the bag. Remember to use a piece of cloth or a kitchen towel over the ribbon and turn off the steam on your iron when doing this!

It was as simple as that. No sewing needed! I'll be using this bag when I don't want to carry a big diaper bag with me. This one can be carried in my handbag. The largest rustic linen bag is the perfect size for just a diaper, a diaper cream tub and an extra onesie for *explosive situations*. You know which ones I mean

And when she's older, we can still use the bag for packing snacks! Two uses for the price of one :) Oh, and another great thing about this project is that you will end up with a set of die cut adhesive letters. I plan to use them on a t-shirt or maybe an onesie. We'll see

And by the way….wouldn't it be fun to make a personalized bag for anyone?  Just think of the possibilities!  Great Christmas gift idea!
