Ellie is thoroughly absorbed with playing with her doll now, so I thought I would add a doll diaper bag to her doll collection. Last year, I made her a doll carrier so with the addition of a diaper bag, she’s all set for traveling! I was inspired by this tutorial but I ended up barely using her instructions, other than her dimensions and the shape of the flaps.
I’ve never done straps like this before (on the outside of the bag) but I just went for it and they turned out great! This project was really gratifying for me actually because I basically just designed it as I sewed and it came together really easily for me. It helped me realized how far I’ve come on my “learn how to sew” journey!
a little inside pocket too! Here’s me keeping it real: see the terrible stitching at the top, where the flap meets the bag? That was me, finishing Ellie’s bag in the evening of 12/23, saying, “I really should rip this out but she’s 3, she’ll never know, just leave it.” So I did, but I still have to resist the urge to rip it out and redo it! 🙂
Here’s Ellie with her bag on Christmas morning so you can see its scale:
I’m seriously considering sewing myself a new diaper bag with these exact fabrics! Both Nik’s mom and I are considering stealing it from her, we like it that much! 🙂
