This evening I am tackling one of my “to do’s” before the little dude arrives – making myself a diaper bag. I have made two of Amy Butler’s Birdie Slings already as gifts, one for my sister and one for my best friend. They both turned out great (at least I think so!) This bag is big, but so satisfying to sew. I’m attempting a few modifications to the pattern to make it more “diaper bag” condusive. THe changes include:
- adding a magnetic snap closure
- adding a swivel hook so my keys don’t get lost in the bottom of the bag
- modifying the pockets to accommodate bottles, diapers, wipes etc.
- attempting a zippered pocket in the lining (this is probably the hardest because I have NO IDEA how to do it..)
Wish me luck!
