I recently participated in a fun sew along led by Samantha Jane Hussey (Sewing Patterns by Mrs H) who designed The Nappy Bag. This is a wonderful large bag with lots of storage features that will work as a diaper or nappy bag or an overnight bag. The Nappy Bag has shoulder straps and an adjustable cross-body strap. It finishes 18" wide by 10" high by 5" deep. You can get your own pattern by clicking here.
I decided to make this bag for use by my youngest grandson, so chose a fun cotton fabric from my stash. The pattern has very clear directions, with lots of photos. It does have a lot of pattern pieces, so staying organized is a must.

I really enjoyed making this bag and love all the organizational features. The top double zipper (although one can use a single zipper) is great for allowing complete access to the entire inside...no hidden corners in this bag! I also thoroghly enjoyed the sew along and the fine mini-tutorials and helps offered by Samantha Jane Hussey throughout the process.
Until next time, may you sew with joy, stay healthy and be filled with God's awesome blessings!
