This is the Modern Diaper Bag from Amy Butler's new book "Little Stitches for Little Ones."  It turned out wayyyy bigger than I wanted, but oh well, it was a fun learning experience since this was my first bag.  I thought the pleats on the inside were pretty difficult to do and I didn't add the cell phone pocket.  Hope you like it!

I love the fabric you picked.  Yeah, that is a huge bag.  Looks like the bag is trying to run away with you rather that the other way around.   Wink

that is huge, i'm sure you'll end up needing the space though. you could make a smaller one for when you don't need to carry that much. we all need different sized bags for different occasions  Smiley
i can't follow patterns, well i've never tried but I want to make a diaper bag (or whatever we call it in the UK) for my friend who is due next may.. i think I might have to base mine on this as i really like the inside pockets.
i really like the fabric you used as well  Grin

That would make a totally awesome craft bag once the little one is grown, too!  Did you use a pattern or work it up from scratch?

The pattern was actually in Amy Butler's book "Little Stitches for Little Ones."  There are patterns in the front of the book.  I could never have figured this out on my own, I'm a pattern kind of girl Smiley

I think the fabric is gorgeous!  I don't think it is that big.  This would be great for going over family/friend's house to bring extra toys and goodies.  I know I never feel like I have enough room; extra juice, snack cups, cars & trucks, books...  great job! Cheesy

I love the bag.  I've been debating on getting the book myself.  Have you made anything else from the book?
