Project: Diaper Bag

My latest project was a diaper bag for a fellow teacher’s wife. They are expecting their second son any day now, and I needed a new project with a purpose! It’s great to make things for friends and build my portfolio at the same time.

I used a pattern from Watermelon Wishes on Etsy. It was PDF, which is convenient, but some of the directions were vague. Also, I’ve never bought a pattern that didn’t state the seam allowances. I had to wing it a bit but I think it turned out great!




You can’t tell from the pics but there are also stroller straps attached but tucked away. I don’t have a stroller to model them on (maybe someday!).

Happy sewing,
