Whimsy diaper bag and winner...

I hope you all had a great and productive weekend! I know I have accomplished some of the things I wanted to. Trying to post as often as I can with all the different projects I am and will be working on. I will be showing some tutorials...my first. I did a lampshade makeover I will be sharing with you all, step by step. I am trying to remember to get as many pictures as I makeover my dresser, chair,and slipcovers. I am working with a client right now on some chairs I am upholstering for her. I will post on those in the next couple of week's as well. Lot's to see and do, would love to have you along for the journey! Feel very loved by all of my followers, thank you!

On to our Winner, but first I want to thank Roxie once again for being so generous in her Giveaway and for being such a fun Whimsy Spotlight! I enjoy, along with all of you seeing so many different and unique business's there are to shop from. Again, CandyLights is a website you will want to have bookmarked under your favorites. You can always use some fun and Candylicious lights for parties, gifts, weddings, showers, decorating...just about anything, except for eating...no matter how yummy they look! (laughing here)...I know a little cheesy.

Here is the Sweet Winner of 2 strands of CandyLights, and 1 nightlight with a 5 watt bulb (your choice of flavors)...

In This Small House!!!

Woo Hoo!! O.k. if Drama Queen saw this part of my post, she would roll her eyes at me and say "Mom your embarrassing me"! Good thing she is sleeping. Happy for you and can't wait to hear what you pick!!

For all those who entered and gave Roxie some blog love too, thank you! So many more Spotlights to see and giveaways to enter, here each week! A hint for this weeks Whimsy Spotlight...letter perfect....I love giving little teasers. Make sure to visit me on Wednesday.

I thought I would share one more thing in this post with you all.

I have a friend who I recently designed a diaper bag for. Well, she ordered it, but it was for her sister who was having a sweet baby girl. This was my first diaper bag. Of course I made sure it had my Whimsy signature on it. Some of the cute flowers I had popping off of the bag and added a center button. Side pockets that had pleats, so they would expand if a cup or bottle was put in. Lot's of pockets inside and out. Overall it was a fun design to create. I took some photos before it went on it's happy way, so here it is.

Dimensional flowers and cute buttons give a POP of Whimsy!

Love pairing stripes and florals together!

A cute pleat to expand with bottles or cups.

I sewed in some ribbon and made a
key fob with an easy release latch.

That way she wouldn't have to go digging in her bag or in a pocket when her hands were already full. I think it turned out very cute. I hope she enjoys it!

Well I am going to bed so I can get lots done this week. I can't believe we are already getting to the end of our summer and school is right around the corner again! Time really does fly! That just makes me want to get so much more done. Have a great day and I will have lots more for you this week!

Hugs to you,

  15. You all are incredibly sweet! Thank you! I thought I would answer here some of the comments you all have given.

    As for a pattern, I plan on putting all of my patterns together for a book to publish in the future so it will be available to all. For now, you can order with me, the only thing is I am waiting on taking amy orders at this time due to our Military move coming up this fall. I will hopefully be able to open my Etsy before or after Christmas depending on where I am at in putting our home together.

    I also have many more designs and things I have not yet revealed and am excited to show you all...soon?

    This bag would be great not only for a baby, but even just for a bag to have for yourself! ;)
