We’ve found you a fantastic diaper bag pattern that is free and stroller friendly.
It’s super versatile, attaches securely to the handles of a standard stroller and has masses of storage. It actually has twelve pockets as follows:
- The front flap has a zipper pocket built-in
- When you lift the flap there are two smaller zipper pockets on the front
- On the back, there are two open pockets – perfect for keeping a burp rag handy
- Two open pockets on the front
- Another zipper pocket on the back
- Two more elastic water bottle pockets on the sides.
The shoulder strap is permanently attached on one end so you can’t lose it. When you’re ready to wear your bag, just snap the shoulder strap on at the other end and you’re ready to go. And when you to put it back on the stroller you just snap the stroller straps and tuck the shoulder strap inside the bag or into one of the back pockets, where it will be when you need it later.
If you’re planning any summer outings you won’t want to leave home without this. It’s great for anytime you’ll be doing lots of walking and don’t want to lug a bag around.
The water bottle pockets on the side are perfect if you don’t have cup holders on your stroller and they come with elastic tops so they can keep your drinks snug.
When you have finished making this awesome Diaper Bag it will measure approximately 16.5″ wide by 11.5″ tall and 4″ deep.
