So this post is mostly for Sarah and her sister Janet in England. Like it, Janet? It’s okay if you don’t! I ended up using soft midnight blue canvas for the interior so that you wouldn’t see any little baby food or juice stains on the bottom of the bag’s lining (sneaky, I know). And I used the stripe fabric for the side pockets and interior pockets as planned. The straps turned out better with stiffer canvas than with the stripe fabric, so I used that instead. And, of course, there’s a little magnetic snap hidden under that tab. For those of you thinking that this bag looks an awful lot like the Market Tote: surprise! The Market Tote was my diaper bag prototype. I just fell in love with the side pockets despite having originally designed them for bottles.
Dear Janet, if you don’t love it, please don’t hesitate to say so! As it were, I know a few baby mamas in the States, too :)
