The first one I made like a traditional tote bag... except really big
I added side pockets with elastic tops as was requested.
This is what it looks like inside, 2 large deep pockets on one side and 3 smaller ones on the other.
I also put in a hidden zipper pouch. I am very excited this turned out well. It is not too hard at all...I think I may be adding a hidden zipper pocket to my bags more often. Sew Mama Sew has a good tutorial on this.
For the next bag I morphed my mini messenger style bag into a much larger version.
Again I added two side pockets, this time with a bias trim.
I also added an extra-large pocket to the outside on the back with a velcro closure.
One this one I put the zippered pocket on the outside in the front.
All in all I'd say my diaper bag adventure, though a little daunting, was a success!! Hope they like them!
