Camo and Poka dots for a little Marine Princess

With all the commotion of packing and moving, picking paint colors and choosing flooring styles, job hunting and interviewing, I haven't exactly been a faithful blogger lately.

Not much has changed.

I have about 4 and a half minutes left in blogger haven....

Remember this post about a fun surprise I was slaving over?
(and when I say "I", I really mean my fabulous mother who did most of the work)

Well... my surprise was a custom made diaper bag for my best friend who is expecting little princess in less than a month!

Her husband is in the Marine Reserves and expecting to deploy sometime within the year, so I decided she and her little one HAD to have a bag to support their hero!

My amazing (and I mean A-M-A-Z-I-N-G) mama spent hours trying to accomplish my "vision"... without a pattern I might add. (Sorry Mama!) I found a BDU jacket at a local military surplus outlet, but couldn't find a pattern for shirts-turned-into-bags anywhere.

I found adorable pink poka-dotted liner and a fabulous shabby chic lace ribbon at hobby lobby when I was on vacation visiting my sister, then buttons and ribbon to finish it off.

I LOVE how it turned out!

I first got the idea from a delightful website called Hero On My Arm.
These ladies are amazing! Be sure to check them out!

Looks like my four and a half minutes are up...
I promise to be a better blogger after this crazy move!
