Prototype!




I just had to share a prototype of a new product I will be making. I have seen some very fun diaper changing pads and burp cloths that have chenille on one side of them. I just happen to have TONS of chenille, so I thought that I could make some to match my bags! The one I made could be used as either one. It measures 13"x17 1/2". Plus, I sewed a tie on one side so it would stay neatly in the bag! Anyway, like I said, this is just a prototype, but check back soon, I will be refining and making more! Let me know what you think!

Blessings!!

Another Option...



I just had to put a picture of a bag I recently made that has a solid, dark bottom! A friend of mine had said how it would be nice to have a dark bottom to hide the dirt. I agree! So, this is another option for the bags.

Blessings!

Just had to share!



I just had to share with you all some beautiful Amy Butler fabrics that I recently used! Aren't they cool blues?! I like them! I have some other fabrics that I will be using too (just trying to get through Christmas and the orders already made for now!). I'm hoping to make up a bunch of different bags and list them on Etsy. I'll let you know when that's up and running!!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Christmas season!!

Blessings!

Our Adoption ~ One Last Fundraiser!

As some of you might know, the reason I started sewing these bags was to help raise money for our adoption of a baby in Taiwan. Well, I'm happy to say that we are almost there!!! I will not stop sewing these fun bags, I've loved it! But I wanted to share with everyone our last big fundraiser to help us raise the remaining amount we need! (Plus, if you've wanted one of my bags, I will be giving away two of them in this fundraiser...plus lots of other COOL items!!!)

I have copied all the information about our fundraiser and posted it below. It will be Monday-Wednesday (Sept. 28th-30th). Please pass the word to everyone! We know that God will provide, but the more people that know, the more people He can use to give this baby a forever family!! Thanks so much for reading!!

~~ "OK, we are really close to having what we need to finish up this adoption!!! I'm feeling a push to try to raise the rest soon. We will need to submit our last big chunk of money when we accept a referral (we only need about $4000 more!). The rumor is, there are a couple of birth mom's due the first week of October! One of those two babies could be ours!! So I'm trying to raise the last bit that we will need to complete this journey!!

Here's what we are going to do! On Monday, Sept. 28th through Wednesday, Sept. 30th, we are going to have a "Power Fundraiser!" And here's the great part, everyone that donates has a chance to receive an awesome gift!! Here's the great gifts we have to give away so far (I hope to be adding pictures of these gifts sometime this week!):

I also have a couple of other items that people are working on possibly donating as well! Our goal is to have at least a dozen items (or more!!) to give away!! If you have ANY ideas of other items, or you could donate an item, please contact me at gusfamily7@q.com .

Here's how it's going to work! ~
  • Donate $10 ~ you get one chance to win one of these wonderful prizes!
