Another Diaper Bag with Accessories

Recently, as in a few months ago now, my close friend had a baby boy. Of course, I couldn't help but make her a diaper bag, and when I purchased extra fabric by mistake, I made a nursing cover and a diaper tote too! I couldn't help it, not only was I in a sewing mood, but I was really enjoying cutting and sewing such beautiful fabric.

First up, The Maggie Bag:

This fabric is from the Arcadia collection by Sanae for Moda. Not only are the colors fantastic, but it's a very nice soft cotton!

I love the large deep hidden pockets on the outside and the fun detail of the flower. I couldn't believe it when I found this set of buttons at Joann's that goes so well! I didn't even have the fabric with me to make sure!

I've had questions about the pattern and currently am preparing it for a friend of mine to test.

The Ruffled Nursing Cover:

I followed a simple pattern that I have for Nursing Covers, but added my own flair. The bottom third I added a contrast fabric and then covered the seam with a ruffle of the third contrast. The ruffle was 1.5 times the width and I made it  2.5 inches wide, before hemming it. Really simple.

Somehow I missed one of the D-Rings when I was sewing them on. I think I actually like it better that way though. You can tie it in a knot and have it exactly the length you want it and not worry about it slipping!

The Diaper Tote:

The Tote I used a tutorial online for, but again added my own look to it by adding the contrast fabric and button. It is actually velcro, but I put the button on it for show.
