Finished diaper bag

I love this bag, it was so unbeleivably easy to make. I followed this tutorial http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=42927.0
I plan on making a couple of much bigger ones probably at the end on december or january.
I didn't put a lining in but I don't think that as a diaper bag theat it needes it. I used a baby blanket that was 29" x 39". It already had the little car and what not on it and the d rings and strap came from a water bottle holder that we don't use and have like 5 of.
The sides are 12" x 15" and it is 8" deep and I used velcro instead of a zipper because I have a ton of it.

new project idea

Right now my husband hates his job and in january he is putting in his applications to become a police officer and he turns 21 in april so when he get accepted he plans on taking a month off of work before he starts the police academy since it pretty much consumes your life when your in it. when he takes that month off we are going to go on a nice vaction to visit my aunt who lives in washington and my grandma who live in california, we live in nevada, so I was thinking about it the other day and I remember the last time we visited my grandma it was a mess since we don't own any luggage just duffle bags, I am going to make use luggage, I found this really cute bag tutorial on craftster and I think if I just make them bigger they will work great, I am making a tester bag that I am going to use as a diaper bag since I hate the one I have now. If it works I am going to start picking out fabric soon.

My son has really fat feet, he wears an extra wide shoe, so I took that into account and measured his feet twice to make sure I had it right and last night when I tried on the sock that was almost done it didn't fit so now I have to start all over again.

Yesterday I started a pair of sock for my son in the harry potter colors yarn dyed, they are almost done all I really have to do is add the heels and I am working on a cell phone cozy for my new cheap phone and I think I'm going to make one for my dad too, he really needs one.
