i was on here about 2 days ago, looking for good ideas for my diaper bag. i found a great tutorial for a pocket on a diaper bag, and here's the result. tute link is first tho. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=38622.0
here are my pictures...
me modeling the front of the bag, nice and low slung too...
the back of the bag with the changing pad and vinyl bag for dirties inside it. the exterior pocket is sparkly silver vinyl.
the top of the bag... you can see the little offset zipper pocket. there are a set of magnetic closures on each side of the bag, and then one in the center. this way it closes and opens very easily without needing too many flaps or zippers.
i forgot to rotate this one... this is the exterior elasticised bottle pocket, inspired by the tute. you can see one of the magnetic snaps open up top.
this is another unrotated picture, a closeup of the exterior fabric.
this is the side with the zipper pocket on it, and it has 3 elastic pockets as well as the center magnetic snap.
this is the side with flat pockets, 3 of them. the picture obscures it, but the pockets completely line the interior of the bag.
and finally, a closeup of the sparkly vinyl changing pad.
the materials were:
a vintage 60's dress for the exterior
some clearance home decor fabric for the main interior
a full size sheet from the 70's for the eagle and stars, and stars on the strap
a felted red scarf cut in half, and sewn into a long strip for the strap
and about a yard of clearance vinyl scraps.
thanks for looking! now if the baby would hurry up!
