Quilted Baby Diaper Bag


This week I had yet again the opportunity to quilt something for a baby, but this time I made a quilted diaper bag for a friend's sister who is expecting a baby boy.  When she told me about it, I immediately wanted to try another bag.  


I really enjoy making bags.  Without a guide or pattern to follow along it can get tricky, but that is exactly what like.  I quilted all the panels with stippling, and made fusible applique letters for his name, and satin stitched them to secure it in place.


This bag is rather large, which I think is its best feature, for working Moms who has to carry a lot of baby stuff to and from home its ideal.  I also added pockets on either side of the bag. 



The bag's dimensions are 19 inches (48cm) wide, 13 inches (33cm) high, and the depth is 6 (24cm) inches.  I think I want one too, for my crochet WIPs.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy quilting.
