I've been dying to buy/use this fabric so when I found out my cousin was having a boy I bought a yard of it and decided I'd figure out what to make later!  lol.  Ended up making a small diaper bag and lots of other little matching goodies.  I used the same pattern as I did for the gray/pink diaper bag just below that says "Sophia".  I made changes to the pockets and closure to make it more boyish.  Also added a front outside pocket.  Hope you like!  I think this is my new favorite pattern!

Here it is with the extra goodies!

No problem!  Yeah, I've been eyeing that Michael Miller fabric for quite a while but I have 3 boys so I never had a reason to use it.  Glad I got to!  Post pics when you get the bag made!  Also, if you like any of her other patterns, she has a section where you can get a discount for multiples.  I think it's Seasonal Sale or something like that.   Wink

Thank you all so much for the nice compliments!

Have you any tips for me regarding this pattern after I purchase it?  Did you put the optional zipper pocket in ? Is the wipes pouch the same one where the Etsy pattern was bought from?  (I just went and looked but not sure lol).  Thanks  Cheesy
It was a very easy pattern to follow, written more like a tutorial with instructions and full color pictures.  The only question I had was about the straps.  They did not look like they had interfacing in the picture.  The instructions said to interface with fusible fleece (as well as the bag body).  I was leary of all of those layers of fleece.  I thought it would be a fight to sew through.  I emailed the seller to check and she responded quickly saying, yes she used fleece.  I reluctantly went ahead with the fleece and it actually sewed together quite nice.  And looks nice too!  I did not put the zipper pocket in so I honestly didn't even look at the instructions for it.  I have put zippered pockets in before though and there is a great tutorial here on craftster that I've always used.  I did put some pleated pockets inside though.  I didn't take pictures of the inside.  Undecided I also wish I had taken pictures of the bag on a model.  It's a little on the small side for a diaper bag.  Definitely big enough for short trips but she also has a satchel XL pattern that just came out that would probably be a better size for a full size diaper bag.  The wipes case is not her pattern.  I *think* hers is removeable.  Which would be nice since that would make it washable.  Mine is just all hot glued on.  There are several tutorials out there for those.  Just google, covered wipes case tutorial.  If you have any more questions, I'd be happy to help!  I really liked this pattern and how the bag turned out!  Good thing I had baby's name embroidered on it or I might've ended up keeping it for myself!

Just made this cute diaper bag for one of my husband's coworkers.  Also made a little taggie and wipes case to match.  I got the pattern on etsy and it was very easy to follow.  Probably one of few bags I've actually finished in a day! The pattern is listed as a Satchel in her etsy shop. http://www.etsy.com/listing/82324508/easy-pdf-sewing-pattern-aivilo-original

Thanks for looking!

I agree CraftyChef. I may have to try non fusible sometime soon.  I've always been a little scared of it!

My partner didn't realize there was to be a small crafted item as well as the cosmetic bag so I got a new goodie in the mail yesterday! I apologize for the horrible cell phone pictures on my lap in the car.  Roll Eyes 

Thanks pearljam94!  I love everything and had a lot of fun doing my first swap!

Here is a tutorial that I used recently that was nice and easy to follow.  She also offers a pattern for purchase that includes several different sizes and a a forumla to create any size.  You could probably just look at the tute and figure out your own measurments but I really stink at that (even on simple things) so I bought the pattern and let her figure it out for me, lol.  http://incolororder.blogspot.com/2011/10/lined-drawstring-bag-tutorial.html
Also, if your husband is partial to the Crown Royal bags, you can get them pretty cheap on ebay. Wink
