I've done a diaper bag like this before...well, I say diaper bag because that is the intended use, but it could be for anything really.  The person I created this for is a trendy, always put together type of person.  It's a basic Jordy bag, with two handles, 5 inside pleated pockets, and the new angle is the angled tab closure on it, which is pretty big.  About 8" across the width, and goes about half way down the bag.  At first I had only done the tab in the printed fabric, but when I was looking at the pieces before I put the bag together, I thought the angles, which were supposed to be prominent, weren't showing up.  So...I pondered the problem whilst lying in bed two nights ago...and came up with the solution that I worked on yesterday morning.  I cut down the original fabric tab about an inch, then created a new tab made of the lining black material...then sewed the fabric tab onto the top of the black tab...to give it a nice outlined look.  What do you think?  I've thought of doing a tutorial for this bag but I really wasn't sure if there'd be any interest.  

Here's a full view of the bag...it's a fairly good size...about 19" across the top, and about 14 1/2" across the bottom.  It's 5" deep on the bottom.



I'd love to hear some c/c and let me know if I should do a tutorial or not.

Love it too!!!  YES!!!! do a tutorial.  I'm sure there would be a lot of interest,  me for one.  I think the way you did the angle makes the bag and I love all the pockets.

If you went to the trouble of making a tute for this lovely bag I would gladly make one! My sister has a baby shower to go to in April for twins, 1 boy 1 girl. I would love to make this bag for her to give as a gift Smiley

This is just outstanding!  I would LOVE a tutorial, please!  I have been wanting to do a purse, but can't decide on which style to make.. I'd love to make one just like this.

This is great!  It doesn't look like a diaper bag but not too trendy either. I think it's the slightly trapezoidal shape I love best, and the angled tab accentuates it! The black outline keeps it from being too busy. Love it. (And I've been looking at a LOT of diaper bag patterns lately)

Life is confusing, just when you think it's over it throws you a view like this and you don't know where you are.

Excellent take on a Jordy bag. Looks great. Did you put anything in to support the bottom?

Thanks everyone! 

Yes, I did add that plastic grid stuff in the bottom for extra support.  I didn't sew it down.  It's just between the lining and the outside fabric.
