I took the Hip Mama diaper bag tute and made it into a school bag. I made some changes including more interfacing to make it more sturdy and I used velcro instead of magnetic snaps to close the flap. I was advised against using the magnets because they can mess with interworkings of electronic devices I carry around like my iPod and my graphing calculator.

That fabric is awesome!  I'm glad someone else had the thought cross their mind to turn a diaper bag into a messenger bag...Cheesy Looks like it holds everything, too!
