Diaper bag sewing plans

***If you haven't entered the fabric giveaway, you still have one more day!***

When I was pregnant with Della, I had plenty of time to plan out all kinds of projects for her.  Now with this baby I'm so busy keeping up with Della I hardly have time to think of anything else! I have been thinking about diaper bags though and trying to fit diapers, bottles, sippy cups, and the like for two little ones into one bag.

I made this bag with a Craft Apple sewing pattern before Della was born and I still use it.  I love the pockets, size, double straps, all of it. But it's definitely showing signs of wear, so I need a new one.

I'm contemplating using this pattern again but have also seen some others I really like. Among my top choices is this Favorite Things Diaper Bag. It's pretty similar to the Craft Apple pattern, isn't it?  I don't think I realized that until I put them both up here.   Maybe I'll just need to figure out a way to marry what I like about both to get it just right...

This is subject to change at any time, but the fabrics I'm leaning towards today are all heavier-weight cottons that I think will hold up well to repeated use 

Anna Maria Horner :: Drawing Room :: Plume in Raspberry

Joel Dewberry :: Ginseng Collection :: Tossed Flowers in Camel

To be honest, I have so many other projects that need to come before this, I wouldn't be surprised if I don't start it until June. It's fun to look and plan though, and if you have any suggestions for great fabrics or patterns, I would love to hear them!

  1. I wish I could take Della a couple times a week so you could work on your projects.
