Hello Sewing friends! I hope you had a chance to catch my DIY Diaper Bag tutorial up on the Fabric.com blog. You can hop over there to check it out the full tutorial but first let me give a little preview here.

There is an easy to install separating zipper to keep everything in place.
Open it up and you'll find lots of pockets. 2 large, 2 medium, and a even a zipper pocket to stash the things you don't want to lose.
Here's what it looks like all stuffed with the essentials.
The straps are long enough to easily throw over your shoulder one handed. But honestly I would just leave this one in the car on outings. It has a nice big base so its stays standing up pretty easily.
I love this fabric print too. To me it just screams spring. It's an Amy Butler print called Harriet's Kitchen Sugar from the Cameo line. Amy Butler is the queen of large scale florals. Here's a tip, when you are using a large scale floral when making a bag order at least 1 1/2 times the fabric you are going to need (maybe more) so you have enough to fussy cut and match your panels. I only started with a yard for this project and wasn't quite enough to get the flowers placed where I wanted them. For the lining I used a coordinating print from her True colors line called Wallflower in Marine. For the handles and base I used Essex Linen by Robert Kaufman. It is my go-to fabric when I need a neutral for a bag.
Anyway, I hope you like it! I hope you sew one and let me see it when you do, I'd love to see it.
