[my diaper bag: amy butler pattern birdie sling]
I have been looking forward to sewing a diaper bag for a long time. Now that we know that spud is a girl, I've been able to choose fabric accordingly. I have this amy butler pattern that I have been holding on to for awhile, pre-pregnancy I was going to make it as a purse... it's adorable. But now, I think I'm going to retrofit it into a diaper bag with a few extra pouches inside.

[fabrics I will *hopefully* be able to find and use: outside-herringbone by joel dewberry, outside top- linen I already have, inside-wild thyme by carolyn gavin which I think is out of print now so I will substitute an amy butler green print]
I also have plans to make a diaper changing pad/roll like this one. I think I will just wing it with a bath towel, fun fabric, and binding.

And if you're wondering what matt will use...my diaper purse is obviously too girly. But we do have a camera bag that we never use outside of the house- we just store the DSLR in it at home. We think he can use this. It's a masculine kind of a small messenger bag. Enough to carry a few diapers, wipes, a onesie, and diaper changing pad. Easy and done! It's nice to have a low-maintenance husband.
