A quick baby gift...

My daughter's teacher left on maternity leave two weeks ago and the children are looking forward to meeting the new arrival after June. I made a little present for my daughter to give her teacher - a little zipper bag. I put some disposable change mats and nappy wipes inside.

We didn't know whether the baby was a boy or girl so we had to find some fabric which was gender neutral. I had plenty of pink and blue fabric but had to dig a bit deeper to find something in my stash. But Peter Rabbit came to the rescue and I found just what I wanted.

I just used a variety of strips. Check out the cute Peter Rabbit ribbon I found to use as zipper tabs.
Basically this pattern is from a Lazy Girl Designs pattern, below is the first zipper bag I made using this pattern. They are quick to whip up - I think I will make some more Peter Rabbit ones as there are a few births coming up in the later part of the year.
