This is a great looking Diaper Bag. It’s the Abigail Diaper Bag and like the designer we feel that it really is a cut above the usual mass produced shop-bought ones. It’s a vibrant, modern and trendy bag where you can really show off your current favorite fabrics. Just perfect for the trendy mom about town.
The designer of the Abigail Diaper Bag pattern says it is suitable for an intermediate sewer. She also says – “It’s a really versatile bag that you’ll just love.” So even if you don’t need a diaper bag, just a good sized purse with lots of spaces to keep you organised, this one is a good choice.
This good-sized bag has the following features:
- Two exterior side pockets
- Two good-sized interior slip-in pockets
- One interior zipper pocket
- It’s double interfaced for strength and durability
- It has a reinforced base for stability.
When you have finished making the Abigail Diaper Bag it will measure approximately 13.75” by 11.75” by 5”.
