I've been wanting a new diaper bag for a while and I bought this pattern from Craft Apple as soon as it was available, but I only just now got around to making it. Since I have such a large fabric stash right now, I made a point of not buying fabric from this bag and using a panel-type fabric that my sister sent me earlier in the year. It's kind of canvas-y and she found it in a hospital craft room where it has lived for an indeterminable amount of time. I'm not good at placing fabric unless it's from the 1930's, so I have no idea how old this is. Maybe the 70's?? Anyway, I love the fabric, but if I bought some new instead of shopping from my stash, I would have chosen something way more subtle.

As for the diaper bag pattern itself, I was very happy. I love how stiff the bag is and how it can totally stand up by itself. And I love the sippy cup pocket on the side. However, if I ever make the bag again (and I want to, but have so many other things to make!) I would customize the interior pockets more to my liking. But, that's just a personal preference thing and the pockets work very well as they are. The pattern is clearly not for beginners. I would have had a really tough time if I had never made a bag before. But I have made several bags, and was able to figure out the directions after some thought. There was no seam ripping involved. That makes me happy. And so does my new bag!

Sorry there's no interior shot.  I struggle with finding time to take pictures.  Something about a toddler running around and grabbing cameras all the time.  Maybe I'll manage to get one later.

It looks really nice. I would peg the fabric to be from the 70's or 60's. It looks kinda popartish.
Good job.

Great job! It's always nice to have a diaper bag that doesn't scream "I'm a diaper bag!"

The fabric is great!  It'll last you well bast the diaper-bag years.  I am curious to see the interior, so if you ever get your camera back long enough, please post pics!
