The first official BohoMama for a wonderful mama :)

Im so excited about this. There was some drama a little while ago about people who cant sew but want a BohoMama, and the guidelines/restrictions that I have placed on my tutorial. It just highlighted to me that maybe I should make the odd one or two, to fulfill my desire to make something other than nappies and for those mamas that cant sew!

This one has all of the changes I have been wanting to make to the original design - it is turned and topstitched with decorative stitching, has three roomy interior pockets, a light coloured, stabilised and co-ordinating interior base to help find those pesky tiny things that disappear when you need them most, the zippered tail pocket, a pocket just below the beautiful flat o-rings that I sourced for these bags. The fabric I chose is an extremely hard to find (Ive seen it sell for $60/y) Kaufman Flower Power print matched with an electric purple twill. It is seriously awesome!

So, here is K's. I hope you love it!

My beautiful model is Betty, I love love love her (my new dressmaking mannequin). Isnt she great?
