Hello all!

About 2 years ago now I purchased a diaper bag pattern from craftapple.com. I meant to make a diaper bag for my then expecting sister. Well, to be honest I never made one, but I made a ton of NOT diaper bags for other people and friends.

This is the most recent one I made for a cousin of mine who is in college and a major in music. I usually leave off the bottle pocket when I use this pattern. I've made it in several fabrics, or just one and they always come out looking great either way. It includes 2 inner pockets and a cell phone pocket and is lined with fusible fleece. The directions were easy to follow and I would reccommend this pattern to anyone.

Very pretty!  If I were to go to that site, is it obvious which pattern this is?  And is it easy to do?  Looks like a great bag, with or without daipers! Cheesy

Yes, I think you should be able to find it very easily. I think its the only diaper bag pattern.

For me it was very easy, and to be honest I almost never use pins, and I am self taught from 2003. I think the hardest part was placing the bottle pocket before boxing the corner, but I omitted that part anyways! Wink

The owner of Craft Apple is an acquaintance of mine; I've seen several of these made up, both as diaper bags and NOT diaper bags, and every one is lovely. She pays a lot of attention to detail when creating her patterns. I'd recommend any of her products.

I bought that pattern to make a diaper bag and when I got it done, I thought it would make a great handbag. 

Here's the one I made.

I love that pattern

Diaper bags and not diaper bags have come a long way in 17 years.  What I carried for my daughter was a thing more like the amy buhler pattern of a weekender bag. I could have stuck the baby and a friend's baby inside and still had room for baby necessities! It wasn't until she was out of diapers that bags became more realistic. (No baby needs 50 diapers when going with mum to the mall for the afternoon!) A change of clothes for baby and a shirt for mum is about the furthest out stuff you need. A couple of diapers, a bottle, wipes, a changing pad, and your change purse/wallet/purse.

And your baby.

You don't need a weekender bag to pack that about the mall or downtown when you go out for the afternoon.

Love the bags on this thread.  Very well done, and love the fabrics.

Well done: ATM
