Sewing for babies

My sister's diaper bag was very manly (so that her husband will carry it of course). But she asked me for a prettier diaper bag for her. In fact, she showed me exactly what she wanted. I think the price is very reasonable, but she wanted the white background topiary print. Well, I happened to have some on hand!

Armed with my new bag knowledge from my Sleepover Bag, I thought I would wing it. And ended up ripping things apart 3 times to get the right proportions. Agh! There was definitely some frustration (with one of the zippy pouches too), but I'm quite pleased with the end result.

Why not a matching changing pad?

And perhaps some zippy pouches to replace her current "wallet" situation?
Current "wallets"! Ziplock baggies!

And a pouch for pacifiers?
