New Bag

My apologies for the silence lately. I've been keeping myself quite busy with the to do list that I mentioned here. I'm happy to say that I checked off everything on the list except the nursing cover and maybe a diaper or two and even found time to make a few new things for my etsy shop! I'm feeling quite accomplished at the moment and now all I need to do is have a baby (I'm 3 days past due at this point if anyone is wondering.)

Anyway, I just finished my diaper bag today and thought I would share the pics. It didn't turn out exactly how I wanted because I'm a geometry flunky and boxed the corners too big. It's smaller than I had hoped because of that, but I think it will do just fine - for short trips at least. I didn't add any pockets on the inside because I'm the type to just toss stuff in, but I did add a zippered pocket on the outside to keep my keys, wallet and cell phone accessible.

Ok, enough blabbering, here it is:

It measures 8.5 inches wide, 11 inches tall and 5 inches deep. I really wanted it to be wider than it is tall, but that's all due to the boxed corners that were only supposed to be about 3.5 inches deep - oops!) I could have done a much better job ironing too, but I was just to excited to show you, so I put that off for later. I'd love to hear what you think. I hope to have something similar in my shop once I get all of the math figured out!



P.S. If you like what you see here, I'd love it if you'd share!

It looks great! You have way more energy then I did when I was pregnant with my 3rd. I got hardly any sewing done. HA!

Thank you all for your comments! Sewing is actually one of the less strenuous things that are on my plate right now! Keeping up with my two year old is much more draining! :)

Hi. I've been following your blog for awhile and really LOVE all of the things you do. Your diaper bag looks so great and I love the fabric. It might be smaller than you wanted, but it also might discourage you from carrying around so much stuff! :)
