I want to make a couple cute little bags for my girls. They don't have to be very big--but it would be nice for them to be big enough for them to carry in place of the diaper bag--as they are getting bigger now, and they think it's cool to help out. I'm thinking something that's big enough for a sippie cup sized water bottle, a small snack, a couple pair of panties (for just in case), and maybe one spare shirt and pair of shorts. The girls are three and a half and almost two and a half, so their clothes are not very big. Anyway, do any of you have a recommendation for a fairly simple pattern (preferably free or inexpensive) that I could use? I've only made scarves and blankets before.

I usually don't start another project until I'm done with the one I'm currently working on...but I'm so tired of the diaper bag! :)

Thanks in advance. :)

Thank you! I actually found a pattern that I'm going to try, but I will keep that in mind for other projects--or in case this one doesn't work out!

I am sometime pattern phobic because I end up searching and searching for something that doesn't exist then I end up making the pattern myself. I don't have any particular pattern suggestions but may I suggest using a felt-able wool. I have made quite a few purses/bags and with felted wool and they turn out nice and sturdy. If you are a sewer you can also line the bag with more felted pieces or fabric to create individual pockets for your baby notions.
Have fun!
