I am in love with this cute bag!  I adore how the sides tie up and then can untie to expand.  It was way more time consuming than I expected so I'm sorry about the terrible lighting for pictures - it was super late!

Made from this pattern: http://www.etsy.com/listing/69836472/the-madeline-diaper-or-travel-bag-pdf?ref=fp_ph_1&src=prvshp with a few very slight modifications.

Front - I had never used the triple stitch on my sewing machine and now it is my new favorite!  Look how nice and thick the quilting lines are!!

Inside with a few stray threads (and where you can see that I cheated and machine sewed the binding rather than do it by hand):

ha, ha - I am not sure that is even what it is called Smiley  The picture on the front of my sewing machine is 3 little vertical lines with a half circle kind of around it.  I used it totally on accident and I am happy I did!
