The Mama & Baby Bag

Searching for the perfect diaper bag for mama and baby? Having a bag that is fun, fashionable and functional for both you and your new addition makes life so much easier in those first few years! I designed this bag do that and more! I think it’s the perfect size for moms who use cloth diapers or disposables—not too big, not too small. I even included patterns and instructions for a waterproof zippered wetbag and a changing pad with a hidden waterproof layer.

The outside front of the Mama & Baby Bag features two elasticized pockets and two flat pockets for those things that you need close at hand. On the back side, you’ll find a large zippered pocket to keep important documents and records safely contained. Just below the strap, a side pocket holds mom’s cell phone within quick reach. The tie-on strap easily adjusts to exactly the right length, from shoulder bag length, to stroller bag, to messenger bag. The strap is designed to be worn folded in half over the shoulder or unfolded for comfortable wear when worn across the body.

Inside, a divider separates mom’s things from baby’s. Mom’s side features a divided pocket with compartments for a pen or pencil, business cards and notes. On baby’s side, you’ll find three elasticized pockets to separate diapers, wipes and changing pad.

This pattern will be available in pdf format in my Etsy store on Wednesday, 10/19. The paper version will be available after Quilt Market on 11/2.

    I love this bag so much. It is nice and roomy, especially since I need to carry enough diapers, trainers and other things for my 2 youngest!

    This is an amazing bag. There is room for everything. And all those various sized pockets keep everything so organized!! It is so fun to make having all those fabric choices to create a designer bag.

    I love this bag and there is room for everything and then some in it. I’m sure that it will be well loved by every mama making it and that it will get good use especially with those hard to fit cloth dipes 🙂 Awesome job Bonnie!
