Free Baby Diaper Bag Patterns - Over 30 designs
So, why make a diaper bag instead of buying one? Because of course, you'll get to
choose your own fabric. Perhaps you want a fun and festive print for your bag or a
fabric that coordinates with your nursery.
You'll also be able to customize the design of your bag. Think about including the
following features in your diaper bag: Lots of inner compartments to keep items
organized and sorted, outer pockets, including a handy pocket for quick access to a
baby bottle, a wide, adjustable strap for greater comfort, a longer adjustable strap
so that the bag can be worn across the body, a shorter handle so you'll have the
option of carrying the bag like a tote, a waterproof lining, a wide, flat base so that
the bag will be able to stand up on its own when needed, and, of course, you can
make your bag as large and roomy as needed.
But if you want a quick-to-make bag, feel free to keep it simple and make it with
just one compartment. It will still be functional and serve its necessary purpose.
And if you happen to be new to sewing, you'll probably want to choose a simpler
bag design without any complex details.
To help your bag stand up to daily, heavy use, sew your bag from a sturdy fabric
such as canvas. Or you can add sturdiness to a lighter weight fabric by lining it with
fusible interfacing. And as with sewing any heavy fabric or sewing through many
layers of fabric, remember to use a thicker needle in your sewing machine, which
will be able to sew through thick layers without breaking.
