Island Batik asked their Ambassadors to interpret the New Beginnings theme in any way they desired. The name of the January Blog Hop evokes so many ideas.
I had the privilege to use Island Batik's Coastal Mist Collection. These misty sea colors were perfect for interpreting the the theme with a New BeginningsBaby Bag for that precious new beginning.
Every new parent needs all the storage they can get. The pieced chevron panel was fun to make and creates four pockets on the outside of the bag by the placement of the comfortable handles. The inside of the bag sports another pocket and plenty of room to carry all those baby necessities.
See the New Beginning Blog Hop list below for more wonderfully creative ideas from Island Batik Ambassadors
