A little while ago I posted the fabric and pattern for the diaper bag I want for this baby. I didn't want to have a bag that everyone could have, so I opted to challenge myself and make my own. To say that patterns intimidate me is an understatement. But...I made this bag in segments. First I ironed the fabric. Then I cut out the pattern pieces. Next I cut out the fabric. Then I set it aside and read the pattern over a number of times to understand what I was doing. The pattern calls for interfacing. I chose to use batting instead because I like the thicker feel in a diaper bag. I really am glad I went that route.
The above picture is of the front with the flap down (fastened with velcro).
Here is the back with a back pocket.
And the inside with two views. A nice big pocket on the one side. Don't you love the lining??
And a side view. There is a pocket on each side of the bag. I love everything about this diaper bag. I love the colors because it will work perfect for a girl or a boy. I love the lining fabric (I love that fabric, but thought it was too busy for the outside, thus a more calm outer fabric was chosen.) I finished the bag yesterday and am really excited to use it!
