Diaper Bag Set- In The Making

I wish everyone a happy weekend and hope you get to enjoy it with your family and friends. Anyway, it has been a short while since I posted something so here is what I have been busy of. A friend of mine who is expecting this July contacted me and told me she wanted to order a diaper bag from me something in pink. So I immediately went and researched online for a fabric and a possible design for her pink diaper bag. Once I saw some fabrics, I let her chose a fabric that she loves, then I went ahead and ordered it. The fabric is one of Riley Blake's collections called Riley Blake Summer Song Bird Song Pink and I ordered it from Awe! I love the fabric and I think it is perfect for this project. 

I started sewing this bag today hoping that I would get to finish the whole set, but then I had some help with my little son, so my plan for the day was not really successful. Anyway, I still have plenty of time to make it, so no pressure on me. This bag has two outside pockets and ten inside pockets. Yes! Twelve pockets all-in-all because she wanted to have more pockets in her bag for all the baby necessities. Wish is granted! 

What's nice about this bag is that it can be a handbag and a backpack as well. I saw this idea while I was browsing through the etsy shop the other day and I thought of doing the same thing with the diaper bag. I didn't have a pattern at all, but the dimensions of the bag, and the rest was all up to me to figure out. I think I pulled it off. What do you think? I just hope Joy will like it! Crossin my fingers on this one. One bag down and a few more things to sew. I still have to make a clutch, changing pad and some other things to sew that will go with the bag. I better get me some good sleep then! Thanks for reading you guys! Good night/Good morning!

(Zippered front pocket with some fabric flowers that I made. I also added some ruffles just for fun.)

(With metal clasp for closure.)

(Ten pockets inside, one with zipper and one key loop. Plenty of room and pockets for storing all the baby necessities.)

(This is when you want to use it as a backpack.)
