Looking for a head-turner of a baby changing bag that everyone is going to admire at the mother and baby groups? I think I’ve found it for you….it is the Blooming Gorgeous Wise Owl Changing bag from Pink Lining.
It was ever so kindly sent to me for review but sadly it wasn’t destined to be loved and adored by myself-…. it was my sister-in-law that was awarded that wonderful honour. 🙂 And does she love the bag? Indeed she does!! She thinks it really is Blooming Gorgeous and so does her husband.
My sister-in-law was sent the bag to review because she was expecting a baby boy. I picked the bag for her from the Pink Lining website and chose the Wise Owl bag as I thought it was girly for mum but also neutral enough to be used as a changing bag for a baby boy’s changing bag essentials.
(The video below is from Pink Lining and it shows a Blooming Gorgeous changing bag but in a different print to the one I am reviewing)
Pink Lining bags are iconic for their pink lining in the inside of the bag , their use of delicate embroidery on the front of the bag and their cupcake print on the travel changing mat…. but I think the owl design fabric , the brown coloured trim and daffodil embroidery make this bag one of the most unisex bags in their collection. Not quite unisex enough for her husband to want to use it as his ‘man bag’ …but …unisex enough that it can be used as a changing bag for a baby boy.
The bag costs £79.00 but for your money you are getting a changing bag that is top quality and will last for years. To be honest, this is called a ‘baby’ changing bag but over time it will become a weekend away bag or even part of your holiday luggage. It is made to such a high standard and you will gets years of use from it!
The bag has a vintage inspired shape and it is very spacious. (It is actually wider than some of the other Pink Lining bags so that you have more space inside it) There is a removable ‘over-the-shoulder’ strap plus short carry handles. The long strap is adjustable so that you can get it to just the right length to hang it over the pushchair handles….or of course your body/shoulder.
There is a really handy canvas pocket on the front of the bag which has stunning daffodil embroidery on it and on each end of the bag you will find an elasticated pocket which is great for storing little bits and pieces. Perfect for stuffing a bib or muslin in so it’s easily accessible.
Inside the bag there are a multitude of pockets and useful features. You will really appreciate the 2 x insulated bottle holders and 2 x nappy pockets. The pen holder, small zip pocket and mobile phone pocket will be very handy and there is also a key fob, a mirror, a useful wet zip bag and ‘the changing bag essential’….a padded changing mat.
The bag is made from an owl print 100% cotton canvas which has been laminated with EVA coating and the Pink Lining is made from 100% nylon. The straps are made from a canvas webbing material.
The measurements for the bag are as follows – 38cm long by 25.5cm high by 19 cm wide. It has enough room to store all the essentials that you will need on a day trip out with your little one.
I could go on and on about how fantastic this bag is but then I would end up with a VERY long blog post! To summarise in a short sentence – This bag does exactly what my sister-in-law wants it to do – it looks great , it has enough storage space for all the things she needs to put in it and most importantly it looks fabulous!!
