Inspired by Chevrons guest : Bella Bums and Bellies

I am so happy to have a very special guest, one of our very own Divas, Melissa from Bella Bums and Bellies! Melissa is a mom to two super cute little girls and pattern designer at Bella Bum Boutique.

I need to take a moment to rave about Melissa's patterns. When my daughter was potty training Melissa's Big Girl Trainers pattern was one of my most loved patterns. It is designed to be customizable to the stage of potty training your child is in. As all parents know, a child's needs change quite a bit throughout potty training. The pattern is nice and trim so it fits well under RTW clothing too. Not that I don't just love a fluffy bum! ;) And when potty training is complete they can be sewn as big girl underwear. The cloth trainers were so awesome for my daughter because she could feel when she was wet. Melissa also has a boy style trainer pattern too! How sweet is that?

Melissa made a matching Everyday Diaper Tote and Contrast Tying Wetbag set as part of the Inspired by Chevrons series. She even made a tutorial for how to make each bag!


These bags are so awesome, and functional! They can be used for so much more than just diapers...I am thinking day trips, an awesome mommy bag, the wetbag for storing wet swimwear...and the list goes on! So hop on over to see the tutorial!

It gets even better though...Melissa is giving away a pattern, winners choice. Enter in the rafflecopter widget below for a chance to win one pattern of your choice from Bella Bum Boutique! Giveaway will be open for 1 week starting now and ending Wednesday July 3rd at midnight.
