    I made this diaper bag this weekend....I'm going to use it to carry on the plane when I fly in May. It's a Favorite Things pattern design called "Mama Mia". www.favoritethings.net.

    I hadn't realized how much I have gotten used to rotary cutting.....this pattern uses TISSUE paper and SCISSORS!!!! I had problems with it!! Especially when I got hot and turned on the overhead fan....duh!!! ROL!

    Thanks everyone.

    The pattern says it's 14" high, 20" long, and 9" deep. The inside pockets have elastic in to hold the bottle.........we won't talk about what kind of bottle I'll put in it...ROLMAO!

    That's a beautiful bag. You did a great job inspite of the scissors.

    I made my bow tuck pattern out of poster board and have had to redo it because I went wild on one side with the cutter....now I just measure it and it's so much easier.

    Gosh, I haven't used a tissue paper in ages and I thought they were so cool at the time.

    Your bag looks great.
