I had the opportunity with a custom order to make a diaper bag for both mom & dad. This was a fun order because I hadn't made a bag for a dad yet, and the mom wanted Anna Maria Horner's oilcloth/laminate fabric. More pictures are posted on my flickr site~ link on the right side~ of the inside of these bags. She chose Happy Campers basketweave for the outside and Joel Dewberry's woodgrain & a Happy Campers scene for the inside of the dad's bag. The laminate was a little tricky to work with when the laminated side was face down on my sewing machine and the other side facing up was laminated. I had to kind of manually pull the fabric through. When the non laminated side was down on the sewing machine it was a breeze to sew. I definately need to change my needle now, too as it dulls it a little. All in all, I would make it again. Hope the husband and wife love their bags!
