Pattern Description:

I was SO done with diaper bags, once my babies were toddling. But I still needed to be prepared for diaper changes on the go.
We were on the go a lot, it seemed. Diaper changes away from home were so inconvenient. I wanted to be the happy mom I was at home and not the worried mom who couldn't find a place to set the wipes within reach.
This changing pad bag turns any bag into your favorite diaper bag. Just add a couple of diapers and your travel wipes to the bag part, and away you go. The wipes are accessible and attached to the pad. The pad has an easy wipe marine vinyl side for messy changes and a soft cushy fleece side too.
This makes a smashing baby shower gift.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • The finished bag part is 11" by 7" by 2.5"
  • The changing pad part folds out to almost 28" by 18"


  • You need a walking foot for your sewing machine
  • 1/2 yard of marine vinyl
  • 1/2 yard of cute cotton fabric
  • 1/2 yard of coordinating lining fabric
  • 1/2 yard of coordinating anti-pill fleece

You Will Also Need:

  • 12" of 1.5" wide elastic
  • 12" zipper
