Yes, for the changing pad I just used 2 layers of fabric and 1 of batting sandwiched in between and then I stitched all three together to keep them from moving. Then I did by hand the bias binding with the same fabric as the back and sewed it all around.
Maybe next time I will use something else than batting or one that is thinner, as it takes a lot of space inside the bag.
Good luck with your, redcurls ... and don't forget to show us (bag and baby Cheesy) when you have it.

Lazydaisy, redcurls the tutorials I used for this are:
For the bag I followed mainly the skipping bag tutorial by Jenhook:
but I changed the pattern to something like this one posted by queenofdiy:
For the elastic pocket I followed the tute posted by kokoleo:
And finally for the pocket with zipper this one by SewPixie:
I'm so grateful to these amazing craftsters that spent their time to post these tutorials. Thank you so much!!!

Thanks a lot for your nice comments  Cheesy. It keeps me motivated to try more things.
Mirmaid, I don't remember exactly how long it took me as I did it thru several nights 1 hour here and there. The sewing is not that long, it is the planning and cutting that it took me most of the time. And also depends which level of exigence you have. I'm very perfeccionist (is that the right word), so I spend a lot thinking the best way to do each part  Undecided.

First of all I have to thank all of you for the inspiration I get here everyday. Some projects are really amazing.
So this is my second attempt in making a bag. The first one was a Jordi, now a more challenging one, a diaper bag. My sister-in-law just got a baby, so I though it was the perfect excuse to test my sewing skills.
This is the whole lot I gave to her:

A nappy bag, a matching changing pad and a stuffed monster created following a tutorial on craftster.
The bag has 4 interior pockets (2 for diapers) and one exterior for the cell phone.
Inside (bottle pocket and pocket with zipper)

Cell phone pocket

Pic of the changing pad:

Finally I have to say that she loved it and I was quite please with the result although it took me longer than expected (I finished it the night before I gave it to her Tongue).
So what do you think?

I love the colour, the doll face patch, the shape ... everything.
Is there a magnetic snap under the patch?

I'm planning to go to Helsinki next month to visit some family. I was thinking on getting some fabric as I love the finnish design (I have a marimekko comforter, alvaar alto vases, etc  Wink). Do you know of any fabric store? Is there any outlet where I can find Marimekko fabric at a good price?

Wow, I'm really flattered by your great wellcome Cheesy Thanks a lot for your positive feedback.
Regarding some of the comments about the topstitching, I'm thinking on using the pink thread as kellebelle suggested. The top part has a lot of pink and also I tried yesterday night the invisible thread on a piece of scrap fabric and I didn't like the fact I could notice the holes.
Malinni: the fabric I got it at a local store in Dublin (ireland). There is not too much variety here, only a nice store with cute home dec fabrics but expensive too.
Now that I see that i can put together a Jordy bag, I'm thinking on trying something more difficult, a diapper bag ... or maybe is too difficult for the second? My sister in law is due in few weeks and I would like to do one for her.

Thanks a lot for your nice comments. This weekend I bought sew in interface, so now I'm thinking on my next project to try it and see if I like it better. I may try felt too ... thanks for the tip dejavugirl.
Regarding the fabric, because of my work I live now in ireland and there are very few stores where they sell fabric and the range is very, very limited. I usually go to one that is speciliased in home dec fabrics. These were sold for curtains, that's why the flower is so big, but I managed to center it where I wanted. But they are quite expensive too, around 12$/yd on sale!
