Here’s yet another version of the Diapers to Go #150 pattern.
I reviewed it before, but I made a couple of minor changes this time around. I omitted the carry strap (I don’t think it gets much use) and I substitued a velcro strap closure instead of my usual magnetic closure. The velcro strap is more secure and it allows for more bulk inside the carrier.
Here’s a side view of it with diapers and wipes inside (you can see how the new closure will allow for more goodies inside):

My only dilemma in constructing it by inserting the strap between the dotted bacground fabric and the batting (so it would not show) was that I could not add the binding as the last step. This is not something I thought through thoroughly. When I showed it to my DH, he suggested I simply make a buttonhole in the binding strip to slide over the strap and apply the binding as usual. What a brilliant idea! Sometimes it takes a non-sewer to see the obvious. Thank you DH. Here’s a close-up of that buttonhole:
The recipient thanked my numerous times over the course of a couple days. I’m glad she loved it.
On my cutting table right now is Kwik Sew 3854, view B. Have a great rest of the week.
