Sometimes I feel uncomfortable...

Sometimes I feel uncomfortable toting around or wearing homemade stuff. Not because I am ashamed of my sewing skills ( I have improved so much in the last year I am far from ashamed) but rather because I can see all the flaws. I made it so I know where every little missed stitch, or bunched fabric or winged pocket is in everything I make. While others see it and compliment my sewing ability I wonder if they are secretly finding every mistake or un-cut thread. Is that a little crazy or what?
My diaper bag is probably one of the very few exceptions to this rule. I love to say, "Yeah, I made it" because even though it has some flaws, it was super challenging and turned out pretty great. I love the shape and the fabric just as much as the day I finished it, and that's the point right.
The lining was a red tag fabric at Joann's and I only bought enough for the bag and every time I think of that it makes me sad I don't have more.

Those pockets are the stuff-and-go necessity pockets for having a baby
