Ok so I made this for my sister in law who just had her first baby girl last month.. I used the tutorial located here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=38622.0 ...  I modified the inside pockets and the shape of the front flap. I also put in straps with metal clips to attach to a large vinyl lined pouch for soiled clothes/diapers etc and a smaller pouch that can also be removed for my sister in laws personal items.. it can also be used as a wristlet.  Oh and I made a reversable diaper changing pad as well.

Thanks for looking!! I just mailed this off to her today, hope she likes it!

Wow!  What a beautiful bag!!  I love your choice of colors and patterns, and especially the appliqued flower --was this hand or machine done?  Really great job and very lucky SIL!!  Cheesy

Thanks for compliments Smiley  The fabric was actually a sheet set I bought at Big Lots for $9.. Still have tons of the fabric leftover and can't wait to make more things with it!  The front flap and strap were made from pink corduroy I found at the thrift store, gonna make a cute pinafore for my daughter for this upcoming winter with the rest of it. 

Oh and for the appliqued flower, I cut out a flower from the fabric design, glued it on with fabric glue and then I stitched the outside of it w/ white thread in a zigzag stitch that was very close together to make it look embroidered on Smiley

Thanks again!

Wow! Great job. I love all the pockets and matching accessories. A sheet set was a cool idea to get the two fabrics that go great together. I'm sure your SIl will love it. Smiley

I love it! Great job and great idea using sheets!

I love it! It's so funky! It doesn't even look like a diaper bag, just an awesome purse. I love the fabric, and the matching accessories look great, too!
