I have no clue what to call it, but I think I did pretty good!  I saw some girls at the zoo with purses like this and thought they were so cute.  My friend told me they were Vera Bradley's, and go for like 50 bucks!  I looked them up and was like "I can make that!!!"  And so I did!  What do you think?!





Able to fit a travel wipes container and at least 2 diapers!!






Thanks for looking!

Nope, I did the 4 x's bigger than you want then fold down the middle and fold the sides in.  It just looks that way from when I washed it.  I'm thinking about ironing them out, but I kinda like the look of them this way.  It goes with the rest of the purse!

Adorable!  I can't believe how much Vera Bradley bags go for ... and it's like 10 bucks to make one!  Your bag is really sweet and I can't believe it's your first one!
