AFTER the babyshower my SIL asked me to employ my mad sewing skills to make her a diaper bag (I would have done it FOR the babyshower but I didn't know she needed a new one). She wanted it more purse like than the typical diaperbag, and she picked out fabrics from my crazy fabric stash....I've got a tonne of pinks inherited from my mom, but not very many things I make are pink! The only things I bought for this project were the clip for the key-holder, and the D-rings and boning for the nursing cover.

the whole set- diaper bag, changing pad/diaper clutch, nursing cover, and a receiving blanket for good measure!

I had limited interfacing so I quilted the front and back pieces with remnant quilt batting inbetween, this of course complicated the construction as I couldn't use a lining to hide my seams without hand stitching.

it has three pockets on one side and two on the other, plus an additional two on the gusset. I didn't want it to scream diaper bag so I left off the elastic, except on the two on the gussets, and they all have box pleats to give them depth. The black on the front (which is identical to the back) also creates two pockets each and there are also pockets on the exterior of the gussets...can never have too many pockets....well untill you have to search them all for that one Really important item Tongue

The bag closes (if you want to call it that) with a magnet, the flower on the inside is an iron on applique sewn in over the interior magnet.

the strap is also quilted with batting to add some stability...this also kinda show the exterior pockets better.

the duo-pocket changing pad clutch is from a tutorial I found from here, which worked out wonderfully. Mine is done with fleece on the pad and also has more quilt batting....you'd think that I would be out of quilt batting reminants....but I'm not!

Nursing covers don't photograph well on dressforms!! the tutorial for this (which is uber excellent) is here She also has lots of other cute tutorials.

and because I already had flannel in my stash and nothing to do with it yet, I serged up a quick receiving blanket. the fabris says "I love Mommy I love Daddy" I think this may be baby brainwashing... Tongue

Delivered it yesterday after work and my SIL was thrilled with it, I think she spent the rest of the evening putting things in and arranging them  Grin

Thanks for putting up with my sub-par pictures and making it this far! C & C always welcome!

I love what you did with the bag, from the thumbnail I figured it was a purse (and I would use it as one Tongue). Love the quilting detail, especially on the strap.
