The first tutorial I will feature is for the "Hip Mama Diaper Bag." I found this tutorial over at "A Mingled Yarn" when I was looking to buy a pattern to make a new diaper bag for myself. I was having a hard time finding a patten that wasn't your standard issue smallish rectangular bag with two side pockets for the bottles. (You know the type, I'm sure.) This tutorial offered everything I was looking for--and it was free. The bag is a good size. Not too big and not too small. I liked that it has a variety of pockets to keep my stuff and Little Peachy's stuff organized. (I not only use my diaper bag for baby stuff, but also as a purse.)

I made several minor changes to the tutorial. I only put velcro on the side pockets, not the front. I added stroller clips and a key clip. I decided to use three fabrics rather than two. I also added some ribbon and ric-rac embellishments.
