I needed a new “diaper bag” because the handles of the old one were falling apart, and since my daughter is getting into toddler-hood, I decided that it was time for the big bag to go.

I decided to use the idea of the Buttercup Bag. I drew my own pattern, based on the shape and pieces of Rae’s free pattern, but I made it kind of big. I love how this turned out. And I added plenty of pocket space inside.

And, at the risk of sounding like a Buttercup Bag addict….here’s a picture of another one I made for my friend Courtney. She loves blue and brown together, and I thought this would make a nice little gift for her.
