My step mom asked me to make a diaper bag she could gift to her expecting coworker. They chose the fabric and asked for the monogram and left the rest up to me…..Because I have no experience carrying a diaper bag I had to look at ones available in stores, reading online product reviews was a great help too. it has 2 outside 3d pockets, 2 outside zipper pockets, and each side has a stretchy bottle pocket besides the main opening. Inside it has 6 slot pockets and one smaller zip pocket. The whole bag, pockets and all is lined with a water resistant fabric for the inevitable spills and accidents that await the mom to be. its my most complicated bag to date, it didn’t turn out as “perfect” as i would have hoped(im a perfectionist….big time) but it looks good and to the eyes of someone who would get nervous to even thread a needle it looked great. Id love feedback, negative and positive, from people with experience in carrying a diaper bag because i wont be testing it out any time soon. My biggest question is… when you carry a diaper bag do you carry a purse too? would it be a major plus for it to have a wallet like pouch that hangs from a key ring inside for easy access?
