So, why make a diaper bag for baby 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 baby bag or a fabric that coordinates with your baby's nursery.
You'll also be able to customize the design of your baby bag. Think about including
the following features in your diaper bag: Lots of inner compartments to keep baby
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 baby bag as large and as roomy as needed.
But if you want a quick-to-make baby bag, feel free to keep it simple and make it
with just one compartment. Your baby bag 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 baby bag design without any complex details.
To help your diaper bag stand up to daily, heavy use, sew it 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 of your baby bag without breaking.
