With a Matching Diaper Bag

Though the kids, house, and dinner were thoroughly neglected, I made a messenger style diaper bag to match the mei tai that I made. I used a tutorial that I found online called the Hip Mama Diaper Bag. I made a few changes, but basically followed the directions.

  • I omitted the velcro on the pockets
  • I made the elastic 12 inches instead of 10
  • I changed around the style a little and added a couple strips of patterned fabric on the flap and back piece among other things.
There are a ton of pockets inside and out. 

The back of the bag has a zippered pocket.

It probably took me about 7 hours total to make including the various child interruptions.
