Make sure to browse through the Thank You Roll, over there --> on the right AND read my More Thank Yooz post to see who's talking about BFZ.

I'm hoping to provide you all with a fascinating update on the status of the disaster area previously known as my living room tomorrow (Sunday).

Jennie, your bags are beautiful! Have you thought of making some that are geared toward being diaper bags? These seem like they would work wonderfully the way you are making them and using some materials that are for modern moms may be a selling point. I will definitely keep watching and will buy a bag for me, just would be nice to buy one for my daughter too. Thanks!

Valorie - I have a coworker that purchased one to use as a diaper bag. Do you have any specific suggestions on making them baby friendly?

Anonymous - yes, they are very similar to Joyce's Bags4Darfur. I have credited her many times on my site (i.e. http://bagsforzaza.blogspot.com/2008/05/frequently-asked-questions.html). There is nothing new under the sun - Joyce, herself, told me that her pattern was inspired by a store-bought bag. I also troll Etsy for ideas - lots of messenger bags there, too - and books from the library.
