I made this extra roomy nappy bag to carry DD's cloth nappies in, as well as a change of clothes and snacks and drinks and my wallet and my phone and a coat and a hat and.... you get the idea!
first I chose some gorgeous quilting cotton for the lining, and then was inspired by that to go for the beige spotty fabric on the outside.
Here you can see the lining and how big it is! I made an elasticated pocket on one side and a zippered pocket on the other. There are two flat pockets on the outside also, between the handles.
I was inspired by the Amy Butler Sanibel bag to use magnetic snaps on the sides so the bag can be "expanded" to squash all the huge amount of junk in that a 1 year old seems to need me to take around everywhere!
Not the greatest photo but you can see the snaps.
To finish off, I made a little name tag which ties on the strap. I bought 75 of these school name tapes for DD when she started at nursery (day care) but I don't seem to be able to just sew them into things - oh no that's way too easy! There has to be a cute tag attached to it!
This was my first go at using biased binding, I was really pleased with how it came out - it looks so professional as a finishing touch; I will definitely be using it again.
