|The Nappy Bag Pattern pattern available at Sewing Pattens by Mrs H|
One thing (oh, and I admit there are alot !) that I can't refuse, is the opportunity to test a new pattern by the talented designer, Samantha, of At Home With Mrs H blog.
Samantha, or Mrs H, is expecting a little baby soon, and decided to design her own diaper bag. (They call them Nappy bags, in Wales where she lives.) Since I won't be expecting any babies (that was 24 yrs ago!) , I made my Nappy bag with just a few minor changes. This will be perfect for me when I am traveling.
My Nappy Bag -
|The Nappy Bag in Joel Dewberry' s Bungalow fabrics|

My adaptations to make this a travel bag:
I didn't add elastic to the top of the lining pockets, or on the outer side pockets.
