Stroller Bag Brag

It turns out people having been loving our Stroller Friendly Diaper Bag tutorial, and you guys have been sending in pictures of some amazing finished projects!

Make your own with our free pattern & tutorial.

We've been adding some of the pictures to the end of the tutorial, but it's getting crowded and we didn't want to leave anyone out. So we're giving something new a try! We'll use this brag post to show off all your great work in one happy spot (with a link in the original tutorial so others can enjoy and get inspiration for their own bags).

Want to share your own stroller bag brag? Submit pictures on our facebook page or by emailing us at MoreLikeHome (at) gmail (dot) com. Let me know if you want your name included in the brag and if you have a blog post you'd like your photo linked to. Happy sewing!

 Mags made this bag with laminated fabric so it is easy to wipe-clean. Love the happy red lining!

I love this version made by Marie in Germany!

This cute polka dot version was made by a Erica for her baby-on-the-way (and she says it's working great now that baby is here!). 

This black & white bag was made by a reader for a friend!
Amanda added in this great ruffle when she accidentally cut the flap to short. Definitely a happy accident! Thanks, Amanda!

Suanne just finished this bag for her daughter and grandson-to-be. She used marine military fabric in honor of her SIL and added a bunch of custom upgrades like velcro pockets, bias trim all around, and a built-in wipe pocket that I'm pretty sure I need!

Divya's bag was made for summer days with a refreshing watermelon & citrus print. Completed with green accents and a custom monogram!

Rebekah's bag is Paris themed in black, white, and pink. She made some minor changes to the pattern by increasing the height of the side pockets and adding a second swivel clasp inside for keys. She plans to use the stroller straps to hang her bag on the back of highchairs at restaurants.

Linde made her bag from Ikea fabric and added a key clip. But my favorite detail is that she reinforced the bottom with plastic to help the bag hold its shape and added metal feet to the bottom!

This beautiful bag was made by Nicole. I love the black & white print with gray lining.

Samantha's bag turned out great, and she pointed out that this bag is also perfect for shopping. She snaps it onto the shopping cart handle to save space in the basket!

Julie made this sweet chevron bag with a fun green lining.

Vero used an adorable owl print fabric to make this sweet bag.

Nadia used fabric that blends in with the stroller.

Thanks for sharing your work!

DIY Big Brother Shirts

The boys have a little bit of an announcement....

Yep, coming this halloween there will be TWO big brothers in the house! We are all so excited, and apologize for the lack of posts as most of my free time has been spent napping lately. Babies make me tired, you guys. But I wanted to stop in and share how we made the big brother shirts we used to make the announcement to family and friends. This was my first time finally trying freezer paper stenciling and it turned out great!

What you need:
fabric paint & brush
freezer paper
an exacto knife
"big brother" printable
"bigger brother" printable

Start by printing out the images for the shirts. Printing them full-size worked great for both a 4t shirt and an 18m shirt, but you can scale them up or down if you want a different size. And of course you can print your own using any fonts you like!
