Last week I made a new diaper bag. After having three boys in a row, I thought it might be nice to have a girly diaper bag. I used the Sew Baby Double Duty Diaper Bag Pattern and really like how it turned out. I think this will be a very roomy bag and will suit my needs nicely.
The bag is made to be reversible, but I added some fusible velcro to the inside to keep the bag shut when not in use. I just think that having pockets on the outside with a three year old might lead to some missing items. :)
I do think that if I were going to use disposable diapers full-time that I would make two pockets on each side instead of three in order to accommodate diapers that are larger than newborn size. However, I will just put the cloth diapers inside the bag and not in the pockets.
The pattern also came with instructions for how to make a changing pad. I chose to use fleece instead of a waterproof vinyl type of fabric. I think this will be nicer for Janna to lay on.
The changing pad rolls up and is secured by a loop of elastic when not in use. I think I will like carrying this bag around. I am not sure that my husband will enjoy it quite as much, though. :)
What style of diaper bag do (did) you like to use?
Don’t forget that tomorrow is Fix It Up Friday. I would love to have you link up your posts.
