When I was pregnant with my youngest, I realized that my current purse was no longer going to cut it. I hate carrying around a diaper bag and a purse, so with two kids in diapers (because potty training was definitely not happening before baby number two came along), I needed a solution. Rather than spend my time searching for the perfect purse, I decided to attempt to make my own.
It ended up much bigger than I had thought it would be. But since I tend to sew like I cook (no pattern, no recipe…), I can’t say I’m too surprised.
I used three coordinating fabrics from Joann’s (with my coupon, I only spent $25 and bought way too much fabric – I see a matching diaper changing pad in my future…)
Inside, I made four large pockets (they are large enough to hold a wipes container) and two elastic cup-holders, that are the perfect size for sippy cups. *Note to self: take pictures of purses before using and becoming incredibly disorganized!
Overall, I’m really happy with how it turned out – not too shabby for my first attempt at a diaper bag purse Mary Poppins bag that can literally hold everything you’ll need for the next three days.
