Diaper Tote Bag


Yay! My first attempt at making a diaper tote bag... I might have another go at it with different colours and maybe a zip or a button to keep it close. My hubby thinks it's great anyways! I made this from this great tutorial Here... Now, Here's a how I did it... 








Making the handles.... I made TWO 38" long handles. You can use cotton webbing if you want.


The Pocket outside...




Here are the side, front and back exterior pieces... I pinned some interfacing to them to give them more body... You can sew them together later or now... I did them at this point because I go crazy with the pins!


Then, I pinned together the black pieces together...


Because the bag was so plain white, I added some  black ribbons to it...


Pin the handles to the body...


Attach the Sides...


Pin the sides to the larger pieces...


And that's my exterior side of the bag...


Here's for the base....


To cover up the rough edges on the top, I used a black ribbon as a bias tape.


For the inside of the bag, I used a black fabric an sewed the sides of it and placed it in... I finished by just sewing in the ribbon to cover the ugly edges


And Tada!!!! yea yea I know, I really suck at explaining how it's done but if you really want to try this simple project out, find the tutorial Here!!


It's Big enough for a baby blanket, some baby shirts and trousers, booties, rattle, cloth nappies, baby towels etc etc... I made it without any interior pockets.




I want to make another one... this was just me trying it out :)) The lines on the tote makes it look so 90's! Haha, I'm impressed with myself anyhow :)

Till I sew Next : )
