new bag for new mommy

My sister requested a diaper bag for her baby.  She wanted grey and yellow, something that looked like her but also could be for the mom of a BOY and a ruffle down the front.

I'm THRILLED with how this bag turned out!  I love the look from the front.  The size was perfect. I had so much fun with all the fabrics but they still all seemed to work together.  I am now securely in love with this Denyse Schmidt grey dot and need to get some more before it disappears! I loved the shape of the strap.  It's as wide as the side of the bag and then it bottle necks to a narrower strap for your shoulder. 
I found the Lola Bea diaper bag pattern online and bought it for a reasonable price! Thanks! It was perfect! (except I skipped the divider pocket) It was a much better size than the "oversized overnight bag that wishes it were smaller so it could be a useful diaper bag" that I made for Eden Joy.
I also made a diaper caddy case and a few burp rags in all the coordinating fabrics. 
The inside has two pockets on one side and three on the other for all your goods, keys, phones, pens, toys and pacifiers!
The outside has a pocket on either side for my goods or bottles or what have you!  The top flap even has a magnetic snap (I'm super proud of the snap-it was a first for me! :)
The bag is loved already and hopefully will be well used. My Mom had to send me the pics as it had to make an emergency trip to Idaho last Sunday before I could snap some pics and finish the nursing cover.  Much love to my sister and her new baby, Clark!
