Thanks to some severe miscalculations on my behalf of how much fabric was needed for this project, I ended up with a LOT of extra fabric which wasn't a bad thing in the end as it allowed me to make some matching accessories for his bedroom. My first idea was to make a small matching toy bag to store Baby Suisse's growing collection of soft toys.
The bag itself is like a big, lined cube open on top with 4 pockets around the sides to put away some more toys.
A layer of wadding was added between the bag and its lining to make it sturdier. The fabric used for the lining is the same as for the pockets.
As you can see from this picture, the resulting bag is not huge but big enough for Baby Suisse's current collection of rattles, soft books and other cuddlies.
Only 4 weeks until the big day, things are starting to look ready :-)
