The Stella Weekender bag

This is the completed diaper bag. It has cargo pockets, zip pockets, is lined and I added the piping. I like that it has handles as well as a cross body strap. I hope our little grand niece baby Brooke and her mom like it. It was challenging, those cargo pockets, but very doable. I highly recommend this pattern. It was a PDF from Swoon Patterns who have some really wonderful designs. Hope you like.

Bunny, I can only hope my work will average up to 50% of yours. Your diaper bag is so pretty; I just know Mommy will swoon over the "Swoon" bag! Remember our diaper bags: vinyl, blue or pink or possibly tan. And a BABY with elephants etc. :rotflo:

Thanks, both of you. I've been told they are changing the pattern.It is being updated with the cargo pockets being changed out to a pleated pocket. The cargo pockets were the fiddliest part of the project and I do think a pleated pocket would be just as nice but much easier. So if anyone wants this pattern make sure you get the updated version with what they are calling the "Sydney" pockets.

Thanks, Karen.

It's a big bag but a soft construction so it's easy to get into the machine. I've done some bigger bags that were very structured and they did look great when done but it is just luck that I didn't ruin my machine with their heaviness. I like that this is a softer look and construction.

I love the bag!!! Your work is perfect and the bag print and piping details are outstanding - the piping really makes those red flowers pop.

Thanks, everyone. It is always appreciated. Compliments from those who sew have double value :wink: .

I am starting Sophie's mini NCW and will use the pink fabric and some black leather. Fingers crossed.

Just love your weekender bag, Bunny. It is so neat and perfect. I have always
wanted to make something like that, but I feel I must begin with something
easier to put together. Love it. Thanks for sharing Bunny.
