Diaper Bags as Gift Bags

I have made several of these diaper bags over the years and several months ago, I came across left over fabric that matched 3 baby quilts that I had yet to give away.  We found out that Em's first grade teacher was going to have a baby boy, so that provided the inspiration to make three of them.  What better packaging to hold the matching baby boy quilt?

Her teacher really liked this :)

Here are the other two diaper/gift bags I made to go with the quilts I made quite some time ago.  The rate of baby showers had dropped drastically, now that my daughters are in their 30s, but I'm prepared just in case.  I've even thought about putting them on Etsy...but it's just a thought at this point.

The diaper bags are nice an roomy with lots of pockets.  Best of all, they are machine washable and dryable.  The pattern is from the May/June edition of Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting magazine.  It is a bit of a pain to put together, but totally worth the effort. 

I hope you all have a wonderful rest-of-the-weekend!
