Bag for a Baby Stroller

My neighbour asked me to come over this week and showed me her stroller bag and asked if there was any way to fix it. I told her there were 2 options if she insisted on keeping the bag. One, peel the flaking sky away and 2 take the bag apart, cover it with some other fabric and resew it.


She doesn't know how to sew yet, we are getting there, her daughter is a student but she still has to spend some time in the sewing studio.

I don't sew items for people, I also don't mend clothing. I teach. But I told her that I would sew a bag for her and use the pictures to write another tutorial. I have to make samples when writing my tutorials. This was perfect. I love that I am making something and that it won't just be sitting in a box and that somebody will get good use out of it.


This way I also get to decide what fabrics I am using and choose the design.


I chose autumn crumb pieces from the scrap box and got to work.

I chose the gold tan thread in the middle, the left was too dark and the right too bright.

I wanted it to be somewhat stiffer than for a regular tote bag, its going to get a lot of wear and tear. I used a flannel sheet to back the pieces and quilted heavilty to stiffen the fabric.





All the quilted fabric pieces for the bag are ready, next to sew the bag.
