One good thing about being on semi-bedrest...I'm getting some stuff done!  I finished my diaper bag!  I used McCalls #4851 and cut out the pieces for the insert/divider but decided I didn't need it.

There are 2 big and 4 small pockets on the outside.

And four good-sized pockets on the inside with plenty more room left for my sling, a change of clothes, changing pad, and more toys!

I interfaced both layers of fabric with a light/medium weight interfacing but probably could have used a heavier weight in either one or two layers...I like the stability of it though.

I love your bag!  I have this pattern, and I've have been wanting to make this bag for months.  I want to use it as an everyday bag, since I carry lots of stuff.  I was intimidated by the pattern instructions.  What was your experience with the pattern?  Any advice?

Thanks!  I got the fabric at a local quilting store - I know one of the fabrics is an Amy Butler print.  I love the store I went to - it's fairly new and it's the first time I'd bought anything there.  They had so much fabric, I spent an hour just wandering around...can't let myself go too much though - I don't think anything there was under $9.00/yd.  such good quality though! 
Anyways...as far as the pattern, I got a little frustrated with it but that's because I tend to try and think ahead of the instructions.  I think as long as you follow the instructions closely, it makes a lot of sense and is pretty easy.  The little tips are helpful too.  I was a little confused on what was meant by the webbing for the insert but I didn't end up making the insert. 
Also, the bag is a lot bigger than I expected it to be based on the picture.  It ended up being great for a diaper bag though.  So here's an action shot...
