When I first looked at that bag I thought it was a Kate Spade...

but then I looked closer and realized it was much much better!  Backpack straps are genius!

LOVE LOVE LOVE your diaper bags. I've been making some myself lately (lots of babies coming at work) and have fancied a messenger type bag for easy arms free access to the world.  However, your backpacks bags look just like Petunia Pickle Bottoms!  They're amazing and so inspiring. 

One question: how do you make your changing pads--as in, what layers are included?  I had an unfortunate experience using a shower curtain liner as the waterproof bottom layer this weekend, and now am stumped.  Any hints? Thanks!

Thanks everyone!  Actually, I do use Petunia Picklebottom as my inspiration.  I can't fathom spening $150 on a diaperbag.   Shocked  But other people do, which is why I am able to sell these for about $100.   Grin  But at least my clients are getting something original - almost all of my fabrics are discontinued and come from a local furniture store that sells the fabric after the furniture they are made with is discontinued, so no two are alike  Smiley

For the changing pad, I don't make it waterproof, just washable.  I use mine mostly when in a public restroom - to keep my baby's bottom off the grimy, germy, plastic changing area.  I am not worried about any urine soaking through my pad onto the changing area (though she rarely pees while changing her diaper), I am worried about germs and bacteria getting on the baby.  Are your clients specifically asking for waterproof?  Come to think of it, I think Petunia Picklebottom's bags are waterproof inside, but I've never had a need for that either (personally).

edited to add:  My layers just include fabric with a little bit of batting sandwiched inside for a bit of comfort.  I have a store-bought one just like this.

another edit:  If you really want waterproof, or at least water resistent, you could try spraying your completed project (pad and/or bag) wtih something like Scotch Guard.
