night out bag

Let’s be honest, as a mom of three who are 4 and under, I don’t get many nights out in this season of life. To continue honesty, I am a stay home in pjs with a good book or a hook and netflix kind of gal so I don’t REALLY mind being tethered closer to home.

When I do happen to escape go out, I have a favorite little bag to take which I stole from my mom (there has to be a better word… commandeered? Does that sound less thievish?)  Let’s not forget to mention the simple freedom one feels when walking out of the house without a giant diaper bag.   Unfortunately, my go-to bag has seen better days.

It was time to make myself a new bag! I used some yarn from my stash that I have had hanging around for so many years that they no longer make it.  Any tape, ribbon, t-shirt type yarn should work just fine! Below, I linked to Amazon some recommendations of yarn that looks similar to what I used.  It is a super simple pattern so it will be very flexible when it comes to yarn type and changing the size if your so desire.
