Jolanda's Jim-Bag...


Cuddly Jim - you've got to love him! Here you can see him as a fantastic, customised Onbag Baby.

Jolanda chose a soft aubergine taffeta to bring out Jim's glamorous side, and chose a sling pouch for those 'now-I-want-to-walk' moments.

The front pocket is fastened with a snap, but the flap uses the standard Velcro fastening.

Mirjam's modified Onbag Baby

"Thank you so much for offering your DIY instructions for download. I used them for making an Onbag baby and I really love your design.
I tweaked the original design a bit. The side pockets are wider than the bag and elasticated on top with a box fold in the bottom so you can put more in (perfect for hats, gloves, tommee tippee cups).

The perils of being a work-at-home-mum...

I love what I do here but I'm still a mum first and at the moment we're having a run-in with 'fifth' disease. My poor boys aren't well at all so I'm taking a short break from work, please forgive me if I'm a bit slow in responding to your query or in getting your order off...

Best wishes, S.

Kristin's DIY Bag - Bias Tape Variation


This is Kristin's DIY Onbag - she chose lovely natural colours and a leafy lining to match.

Kristin decided to skip the zipped back pocket and found the rolled hem a little daunting (not the first I don't think!). So she modified my pattern to use bias tape instead.

You can see the original thread on The BabyWearer here.

Claire's Bag


I was in such a rush to get this off before I went away that I didn't take any photos! Such a shame because it is a beautiful bag :)

Still, the lovely Claire sent me a couple of action shots so all is not lost!

The bag has a chocolate brown, beautifully soft, cotton drill outer and a wonderfully bright Ferrari-red taffeta lining.
