I am on the search for the perfect diaper bag. One not so big that it’s ridiculous (yes, I made a two foot long bag – don’t ask), and one that is not “cute”. I’m really not a “cute” person. I’m more a practical person.
Being a practical person, my most important requirement is that it doesn’t get in my way and can hold all my stuff as well as the baby’s. I started with this messenger bag:
This bag has a ton of pockets, including a removable “diaper” pocket that can be snapped to a stroller. I would love this bag, except that the fabric is a black and pink plaid. Remember my thing about “cute”? Nothing pink, even this cool plaid, will ever be a part of my wardrobe. I have a phobia. It’s documented. I wish I could be one of those people who can rock pink, but I’m more the black and white type.
Well, since I didn’t have enough fabric in a color and weight that I would like, I started making more “slouchy” bags.
This is my current diaper bag. No, it’s not black and white, but it’s a nice plain khaki. It’s almost perfect. It has two interior pockets, and is big enough for most stuff. I can shove two diapers and a plastic bag of wipes. (I’m not cool enough to have one of those plastic cases, and I plan on making a permanent case out of fused plastic bags, but for now I use a ziploc.) I can also put my wallet and one knitting project in it. I can even put a small grocery order in it (if I take out the knitting). The only problem comes when I feel like I have to pack the entire house in it. Then it’s too small, but the only thing big enough is my two foot long bag :).
Anyway, since I love it so much I made some more and put them in my store.
Have a look:
Hope you like them.
