I just love the internet...even though we live over 100 miles apart, I was able to let her choose the bag style and fabrics quickly. I took pictures of different fabric combinations and sent her various links for patterns to look over and make her selection.

So here is Kym's Nanny-ing bag (that doesn't look like a diaper bag!):

from my stash for the Pink leaves
Dimensions: 15” wide, 15” tall, 3.5 to 5” deep, 10.5” handle drop
Super Tote Features:
+ recessed zipper
+ roomy interior pockets
+ front exterior pocket
+ cute piping and pleat details
+ makes a perfect diaper bag or gym bag, great for hauling anything you need
I washed the fabrics first.... I know this will be used as a diaper bag, and she will be washing it.

This Super Tote has a beautifully designed zippered top closure, that opens wide to get inside of the bag.

I found this really practical pattern: Travel Diaper Changing Pad Pattern by Maureen Wilson from Made by Marzipan

I added fabric ties, instead of a piece of elastic and a button, to close up the pad.

I got to see Kym at our family reunion a few weeks ago. She says the bag is awesome, and she loves the changing pad. It wipes off so easily! Looks like she picked out a winning combination!
