I used the Aragon Bag pattern by Sarah Lawson to make a diaper bag that Riley’s Dad wouldn’t mind carrying. I added a detachable strap that is long enough to go cross body, freeing his hands for more important things.

I really wanted to lineup the motif on the front pocket and flap with the background. I needed four of this repeat to make it work; one for the back of the bag, one for the background on the front, one for the pocket and the last one for the flap.

On the first attempt, I managed to cut and sew everything so that it matched, but then attached the snap facing the wrong way. There wasn’t another panel of this motif on the fabric yardage I had, but luckily my LQS still had it in stock. I got another yard of fabric and remade the flap with the snap on correctly. The flap didn’t line up as well the second time, but I am willing to live with it.

Niece #2 liked the diaper bag so much that I made one for her from the same pattern. I used this gorgeous Amanda Carona fabric on the outside and a plain navy and white stripe for the lining and accents.
