When my son was smaller, I liked a small backpack for a diaper bag. I was given a very nice diaper bag but barely used it because it was so bulky. I know several others who also liked backpacks. So you might try feeling out the prospective mother or grandma about that first and see if she would get much use out of one. I do like the one that Mama Bear linked too, though. It doesn't look so much like a diaper bag.

Now that my son is older, I carry a small pack of wipes and a couple of extra diapers in my purse. My purse is pretty big, though.

thanks for all the hints.....I do have some awesome baby boy fabric....yes, she is having a little boy!, so I know there will be a quilt in his future. Might hold off on the diaper bag until I get an idea from Grandma!

I fake it. Make it big with plenty of pockets, some of which are zippered in case the parent wants to throw in a billfold or other valuable.

The Professional Tote makes a nice diaper bag. It has pockets on the inside, front and back, and on the sides. It looks complicated to make but if you take one line at a time it is easy to do.

When my kids were little I had a huge diaper bag for keeping in the van and a small tote bag for taking a couple diapers, travel pack of wipes, change of clothes in with me wherever I was going. I made lots of these smaller ones as shower gifts. They were always used and liked. I always had a pocket on the front that I put the baby's name on. Denim was a very popular fabric for the body of the tote. Then the lining and the pocket were some sort of fun fabric.
