diaper bag

I had almost decided that I wasn't going to get my little diaper bag done before the baby came. Not because I thought I didn't have enough time, but I was just having a hard time motivating myself to work on it.

But I guess a nesting or crafting instinct took over - and so I finished it up this morning. I really love how it came out. It also helped me understand why people who make cute bags and sell them on etsy charge so much - it really took me a while to do, though making up a pattern as I went along definitely made me have to stop and think about how I wanted to do everything.

Anyway....here it is:








I love the zippered pocket on the front.





















Inside front.




Here is the inside - it has two elastic pockets. (It's hard to photograph the inside of a bag.)










The back pocket might be my favorite part - I love how the pleats look.


And...it has a completely adjustable strap.












So now I guess the baby can really come - I think I don't have anything else to make.....
