I saw the Jamie that is apparently also a favorite of Brad Pitt and thought I had hit the jackpot. A co-worker is having a baby and I would really like to sew her and her husband a diaper bag that will work for both of them.

Problem #1:  I know nothing about what makes a good diaper bag.

Problem #2:  Her husband is a very large man (muscular and very tall former football player) and while the Jamie bag looks cool, it doesn't really suit his size.

I was thinking of using these tutorials to make a knock-off version of the Jamie bag, but I would really like some input from people who have actually had need of a diaper bag to give me some tips.

You don't need much specific stuff for a diaper bag, just plenty of space & some pockets.

Well, I just finished making myself two diaper bags, one large...for the early months of many diapers and tons of changes of clothes...one small...for the later months when I only need to carry a few diapers and some wipes, cell phone etc... So, I made the Amy Butler modern diaper bag, altering the dimensions to 20% less than the actual pattern.  It has bottle pockets and great pockets just right for diapers.  You could include one long flat pocket to hold a changing matt.  In my small diaper bag, I made it in the style of a messenger bag, just right to fit a few diapers and some wipse.  I included a pocket for the cell, diaper cream and changing matt.  One more thing...a seperate piece that I have made as a gift for some friends is what I call a binky bag.  I used the pyramid bag tute from craftster...and used 5x10 dimensions, lined with clear vinyl.  It keeps pacifiers from falling to the bottom of the diaper bag and coming out with lint, crumbs...dust, etc...clinging to it!  I have had rave reviews over this one!  Just a thought for something to go along with the bag.  Hope this helps!
