A “shower gift”/ Christmas gift for my sister-in-law. Features 7 inner slip pockets, 1 large zip pocket, key clip.
This took lots of effort! I made the pattern up myself, originally wanting pleats only at the top. This was difficult mostly because I wanted the bag to be very sturdy (it is a diaper bag after all). I decided just to do the pleats all the way down after giving up on the pattern!
I used a layer of heavy weight interfacing (not fusible) on each of the body pieces (inside and out), then a layer of fusible fleece between. The base is instead 2 layers of that really sturdy home dec interfacing (too much for the sides, believe me I tried…). This took lots of time to get right, and I’m not perfectly happy with the result, but I think it turned out pretty well. I would definitely do some things different next time. I wouldn’t make the shape quite so triangular (this caused a few problems), although it works well for a diaper bag without a zip top.
