My very good friend Kimi Joy (and new mommy to the beautiful Addison Joy) came to me and said she was tired of trying to carry all of the gear associated with a new baby as well as a purse. She tried scaling down the size of her purse and even bought one of those cute Coach cross-body swing bags. It was still just one extra thing that she felt like she didn't want to carry. She started doing what I think most new moms do...putting her wallet, a lip gloss, her phone and her wallet in the diaper bag. She just felt like her stuff was strewn all over the bag and had to look in pocket after pocket to find what she was looking for.
So, I came up with this nifty little wristlet for her and I'm so excited with the way it turned out that I'm definitely going to start taking orders for them. It is so practical that I can't believe my organizational mind didn't come up with something like this before now!
It has a main zipper compartment to hold the essentials like cash, cards, lip gloss and any other small items she may need throughout her day.
One of my favorite parts of this bag is the cute little flower that I added to the front flap of it!
The front of the bag has a pocket that is lined with minky to be soft and cushioning for her phone. This minky will also serve to keep her phone clean as she takes it out or puts it in the pocket. There is also a layer of batting in the pocket to keep her phone protected.
This part of the bag is really awesome! There is a wristlet strap so that she can let it swing from her arm as she carries the baby. But the coolest part is the little claw hook I put on there. This allows her to open the wristlet strap and hook it around her stroller handle or a shopping cart OR the strap of her diaper bag! No more hunting to find which pocket she put HER stuff into!
Then I lined it with a pretty little coordinating satiny fabric on the inside to give it that posh "Coach-like" feel to it. :)
