Diaper Bag Fun – be creative!

I originally created this post as a private page for a friend to demonstrate my method for creating a diaper bag through photos…… However,  I decided to make it public as other readers are getting notice of the page via  RSS feeds and want to know why they can’t get into it.  So here ya’ go for anyone interested.  I used leftover scraps from a quilt project for the first bag so that’s why you’ll notice lots of piecing.

For anyone interested in making a diaper bag similar to this, I suggest you look at the links below to guide you.  For those of you familiar with Jenny Doan of Missouri Star Quilt Company, you know that she’s always sharing simple ideas for sewing and quilting.  Her video on making bags from charm packs is the basis for this design.  I just changed measurements, added pockets, some embroidery, different straps and borrowed some of the ideas from the Moda link.  I’m not one for patterns and just like to “freestyle” it!

Have fun!
