DIAPER BAG FOR BABY DOLLS (or a cute little purse!)

I had a request from a sweet little girl.  For her birthday, she wanted me to make her a diaper bag to use when she plays with her baby dolls.  Having 3 boys, it's not very often that I get to make cute little girl things so I jumped right on it.  Here is what I came up with.

The birthday girl helped pick out the fabric from my stash.  I think she did a fabulous job...I love the bright colors!  The bag is complete with 5 outside pockets and 3 inside pockets.  Just the perfect size for all of her American Girl doll needs :)  Or, it could also double as a purse.  I love it when things have more than 1 use!

I used my Silhouette to make a personalized label.  That thing has come in so handy!  I added the year so it would be easier to know when I made this particular bag for her.  You can see a picture of the messenger bag I made for her birthday last year here (it's the one at the bottom of the post).

I don't have a link for a tutorial this time since I just kinda made up the pattern as I went along.  If you have any questions about the bag, please don't hesitate to ask.

Hope you are enjoying your Saturday.  It is sunny and beautiful here...yay!

You probably have NO idea...but where did you get that grey fabric?
