Hmm, need to work on my routines. It seems I get around to sorting photos for here about once a month. I prefer blogging with pictures. This would have happened sooner, but our internet isn't behaving at the moment, its not always working, or working fast enough- its been a problem these last few days.

I've just taken some pics of my practice Onbag. I've struggled to find pictures of the inside of the bag , and didn't quite understand the pattern instructions without. So, I decided to use a ripped old sheet to have a practice, which I'm really glad about. Now I've made one, I know I like the overall style of the bag, but also the side pockets need adapting slightly to fit our family waterbottles comfortably. The sheet was white (as the girls are talking of adopting it, I imagine fabric pens will be put into use) so the photos don't show it very well, but here they are, with Little One as willing model. I haven't actually looked at the suggestions for how to tie the bag (there's a website of course!)- the point of this bag is the tying straps, so its all soft and can be used under/over/around a baby in a sling (though sling + baby not compulsory!). A friend has suggested padding the strap for additional comfort, and I think when I get my proper one made I'll do that. I'm just waiting on a cutting ruler -mum in law gave me a rotary cutter which is brilliant, but I think using a patchwork see-through ruler type thing will help me be a little less wasteful with straight lines.
