New Baggity Bag

I've been using the free diaper bag that they give you in the hospital because I couldn't find a diaper bag I really liked, so I finally decided to make my own bag (Amy Butler's "Birdie Sling" pattern) with some of my very favorite fabric from Anna Maria Horner. It was a really fun project and I'm happy with it. It's a huge bag! If I didn't have to carry around baby stuff it would be way too big!
Flaming orange lining. Maybe a little too intense, but at least it's not visible from the outside.
I had never done pleats or gussets before. Basically all I had ever done before this was sew in a straight line. So I learned a lot.
