How many of you mamas out there are tired of searching for a fashionable diaper bag that coordinates with all of your accessories? Even though I had sewn our initial diaper bag, I somehow ran out of the amazing detail fabric I had and then couldn’t find it anymore when I wanted to make coordinating accessories. Thankfully, for you mamas out there on the hunt, Sha’Lari Couture is taking care of all the details for you. 😉
It All Started With a Dream and a Handbag…..
“As a child, I had dreams of designing women’s clothing and selling them in my very own store. As I got older my dream never waned, but was a “flicker of light” at the end of a very dark tunnel. What I did not know, is that my childhood dream would start out with a simple handbag project and end up evolving into a custom handbag and diaper bag business. Who would have ever thought? I sure did not….and the rest is history! I like to think of this new venture as a new chapter in my life titled “A Dream and A Handbag”. I do not know where it is going to take me but I am going to enjoy every moment of it. ” -Shannon
The vinyl changing mat is my favorite “extra”. Backed and bound by the same pink, the 21″ x 13 1/2″ changing mat has a layer of vinyl over the chevron print. It’s a cushiony surface to lay your kiddo on anywhere that you need to change their diaper. The vinyl is a great safeguard and makes it super simple to clean up messes by easily wiping off the surface. I find it especially useful since I have a newborn and it seems like she has a magic radar that tells her to pee (or sometimes poop, eek!) right in the middle of a diaper change as I’m switching from dirty to clean.
The baby blanket is a warm pink fleece with a matching pink satin trim/binding. Since the day that it arrived, it has been in constant use. It’s our blanket of choice for when we leave the house because it’s warm but lightweight and large enough to use as a nursing cover if I need to. Measuring 30″ x 36″, it’s also large enough to keep her wrapped up in around the house yet small enough to carry room to room.
The outside has a pocket on each side specifically for bottles and sippy cups. You can obviously use them for other things but they will be your hero for those items to keep them in easy reach. Between the straps on the front and back there are additional pockets that I have found are perfect for keeping my wallet in and keeps it easy to find when we are at the store.
