I recently bought a new diaper bag pattern called the Hot Mama Messenger Style Diaper Bag. I chose a canvas type fabric with flowers for the outside and a twill fabric for the inside. I really liked the pattern and the bag that resulted from it.
I had been wanting a new diaper bag that didn’t really look like a diaper bag and I think this fits the bill. It could even be used as a regular bag when I am done using it for the baby.
There was one mistake I made. I somehow put the cell phone pocket on the side with the changing pad holder when it should have been on the same side as the wallet pocket. Other than my mess up, I found everything to be pretty straightforward in the instructions.
I did add a piece of heavy cardboard covered in fabric to the bottom of the bag to give it extra stability. It can be removed to wash the bag. I really like that the whole bag is washable and that it doesn’t look like a traditional diaper bag.
Julia picked out the fabrics from some remnants. I have enough left that I am going to make a mei tei to coordinate. That will be next week’s project. 🙂
