An American friend, that I have made over here in Korea, is having a baby. She is very brave so to show my support I made her a (my first) diaper bag - its my biggest project to date and although its not perfect - I am proud of it.
AND the best part is that if I can do it you can too.
I've attached the links/tutorials that I used - I would have done my own tutorial BUT because it was my first try I didn't know if it was going to be a tutorial on disasters or not.
So without further delay...... I present to you:
(I made and attached a felted owl to suit the fabric)
Here is a better view.
On the left is a diaper/wipes holder and on the right is a diaper changing mat.
Sorry for the blur. The bag has 11 pockets total. 7 on the inside and 4 on the outside.
Here is the changing mat close up:
I attached vinyl.
Here is the diaper/wipes holder up close:
This one needs a bit of fine tuning - I might have made it an eensy bit too small.
And this is how both of the above look on the inside:
I didn't have any diapers so just imagine them in the holder :)
"So how did you do it?", you ask. Well here are the amazing tutorials:
The FREE diaper bag tutorial I got from Warehouse Fabrics Inc. (thank you thank you thank you)
(I left out the divider and piping because of my limited, but still developing, sewing skills)
Here is also a link to a whole collection of free diaper bag tutorials - so you can pick what suites your style. The train to crazy: Diaper bag tutorial and pattern roundup.
The changes I made where to use fabric and just cover one side in Vinyl. Then I attached bias tape.
Lastly the diaper/wipes holder doesn't have a tutorial - not because I don't feel like sharing, but because it was an improv experiment. After some fine tuning, and if you want it, I will post it :)
Here are some other ones in the meanwhile.

Let me know if you have any questions and I will see if I can help :)
