2-in-1 Bag: Stroller Bag into a Messenger Bag by sareew
I started this bag when I was maybe 6-ish months pregnant. Ellie will be 7 months old tomorrow... so yeah. I'm not sure what happened. I had the outside sewn, the lining sewn, the flap sewn, and the strap pieces cut out. That's where I stopped. And didn't touch it again (other than to move it out of my way about 258 times) until last night! I was able to finish it very quickly and it was super easy. I guess my pregnancy exhaustion just got the better of me last year. Or maybe I just had too many other pressing projects for her nursery. Yeah. That's it!
I did not deviate much from the tutorial. I added a pocket on the inside, but it looks kind of terrible. I didn't do it until after I sewed the lining pieces together. Had I done it first, it would've turned out much better. I also put a medium-heavy weight interfacing between the bag layers for more stability. I skipped the velcro.
I can see this bag staying on the stroller this summer for walks to the park. I can just cram what I need into it rather than lugging the entire diaper bag.
