I managed to finish the test run of the medium-sized dipe bag this week. I’ve been calling it the 3-hour bag, but that’s not so interesting . . so I’m still thinking of another name. (The new and improved name is . . . “The Bungalow Diaper Bag“) But the basic idea is to use this bag when we’ll be out and about for 3 hours or less. We tried it out at church today, and it worked pretty well. I need to make a change or two, but it’s already in the new and improved plans. Here’s how it turned out:

The inside of the bag

The roomy inside of the bag with space for two wet bags (dipes and wipes), and pockets for paci's, a sippy cup, clean dipes, changing pad and washcloths/bibs. Plus there's still room for books or snacks or whatever in the middle.

The front of the bag.  My test run of the "attaching purse" is on the front"

So all in all, I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. (Oh, I should mention that the pattern for the outside of the bag came from the book “Bag Boutique” by Amy Barickman and it’s the Hobo Bag pattern. the design/pattern for the inside came from my brain!!) I need to test it out a few more times before actually making the bag with the nice fabric, but it looks promising!

The other bag I finished is the 1-hour bag — again, needs a more interesting name. (The new and improved name is “The Micro-Studio Diaper Bag“) I didn’t do a mock up of this one since I figured “oh, this will be easy.” Of course, I should have done a test run. I ended up having to jury rig the big pocket because I messed up, so it looks a little wonky, but it works like a charm. Here are two pics:

So on to the next step: writing out directions for the “we’re going out all day” bag. (Oh, and coming up with better names for ALL of the bags!) Stay tuned for more fun and exciting info on my diaper bag project=)
