A good friend is preggers with the first offspring. I'd been planning on making a diaper bag for months but kept postponing it. I got the invite to the baby shower last week Monday. When's the shower? This Saturday. Not a biggie I've got a whole week and a half, right? First lined bag project sure no problem! Good grief was I in for it. I think I sewed the whole thing twice or more. Thankfully it's done a whole day early and I could take pics of it.
The outside fabric was a cheapie calico I bought from JoAnn's about 15 years ago. They still make the print! The inside fabric is from Wal-Fart's meager fabric selection, but they were the only ones I could find a cute Disney print around me. I used Sew Baby's Double Duty Bag pattern although it's basically a Jordy bag with an interior pocket panel. Instead of doing the two-toned exterior for a reversible bag, I taped the two pattern pieces together.
The bag stands on it's own due to interfacing both fabrics with Pellon Decor Bond. The pattern said to use Craft Bond. Pellon has either Craft Fuse or Decor Bond. *Hint* the heavier the interfacing the more likely it is to come loose from the fabric. The Decor Bond was pretty stiff on it's own. I'm surprised any stuck. For the straps I used two layers of lighter interfacing left over from another project and I think it behaves better than the Decor Bond by far.
Outside standing on it's own without any props or fillers.
Inside shot with baby stuff. The pockets are substantial, three on each side and all about the same size. I've got a bottle with packaging, a portable baby wipe container, and pacifiers with a baby powder all on the pockets of one side.
