    Diaper Bag help

    My granddaughter saw the Bow Tuck purses I've been making and wants a larger one for a diaper bag/purse. Have any of you made this bag larger? I'm going to try to wing it but I'm really not good at adapting a pattern and making it look right. Would love any help you can give.

    Thanks
    Debra

    Yes, I made one deeper and a little wider for my sister when she had my niece. I also added pockets on the outside that are exactly like the ones on the inside, changed the straps to a single long cross-body strap and added a magnetic closure.

    For the pattern I believe I left the bottom section the same and just added inches (maybe four?) to the height of the top section. If I made it any wider I just added an inch or two to the width of both the top and bottom sections.

    ETA: I thought I'd posted a pic here

    Thank you so much for posting this. I think this is exactly what she's looking for. I will send her the link.

    I made the professional tote from this pattern - http://thecreativethimble.com/cart/i...products_id=40. It can also be used as a diaper bag.

    I made it wider and added a couple inches equally to both the top and bottom pieces. I also added inches to the height too. Hope that makes sense.
