So I heavily modified 2 pattern pieces from a Butterick tote bag pattern to make this diaper bag for us.
I quilted the front/bag/sides with fusible fleece, added stiff peltex to the bottom for a little stamina on the bottom. Put snaps on the sides so I could bring them in or unsnap when I needed the bag to be HUGE. Small pockets inside on both ends, and then a long pocket separated down the middle on the other. Made a “tab” to fold over and snap onto the front to hold the bag together.. There are 3 snap settings for when the bag is barely full, full, and loaded, lol. And there is a doubled over strip of twill tape in the side seam inside with a snap on the end and at the seam to snap on a paci, keys, toys, etc.
Here are some pics!
Regrets: The tab is too long, I wish I would have interfaced the lining too to make it even more sturdy *although it does stand all on its own EMPTY*, and I think I would have liked it a tad bit smaller, like an inch shorter and wider.
