Yes, I am THAT girl. I’ve tried to deny it before, but honestly I have always been a “girly” girl! My mom says that in kindergarten I refused to wear pants of any kind opting for dresses and skirts. I never wore a pair of jeans until 4th grade! Luckily a few of my friends convinced me that you can wear pants and still look cute. I still secretly had a thing for getting all dressed up and I still do!
So all that to say that it should come as no surprise that when I received this free diaper bag from Babies R Us (with my purchase) I immediately began thinking of ways that I could dress it up. This is what I came up with!
I used 1.5 inch grosgrain ribbon and sewed fairly large stitches across the top. I did not cut the ribbon off the spool until I reached the desired amount of gathers.
