What was your source for this sewing project? Other Tell us more about what inspired you. My friend Linda asked me to design a diaper bag for her, for when her first baby would be born. Now, I know nothing about babies. But I do know... diaper bags need to be big and they need lots of pockets! So, I designed this messenger bag (which would also work as a school bag or laptop bag I assume as it's very well padded!). It has a adjustable strap, it's very big and has LOTS of pockets. This is actually not the bag of my friend, but the 'test' bag I made. Not too bad isn't it? So let me know what you think!
