Mrs H – The Nappy Bag – Paper Pattern


This practical Nappy Bag has two short shoulder straps and one detachable long strap which can be used cross body or as a shoulder strap. Ideal for grabbing and going in a hurry!

The Nappy Bag is packed with pockets! The large front pocket is closed with a magnetic snap sealed flap and the sewing pattern contains instructions for adding two optional hooks in this pocket, perfect for keys or keeping dummies to hand. The full-width back pocket is closed with hook and loop tape and conceals a hidden zipped pocket.

The interior of the Nappy Bag also boasts an impressive array of pockets including a zipped pocket for personal items, 4 elasticated slip pockets and 2 elasticated bottle holders. Add these to the outer pockets and the elasticated outer side pockets, and you’ll be able to fit enough in for even the most awkward nappy/diaper changes.

This versatile bag is big enough to hold multiple items without the usual changing bag look. Many of the testers have also chose to make additional bags as travel/overnight bags showing just how multi-purpose this pattern is! The Nappy Bag is also an ideal gift for baby showers and expectant parents, or a great, satisfying sew to make for yourself.
