The Convertible Ruckus Diaper Bag – Sew and Sell

The Convertible Ruckus Diaper Bag - Sew and Sell!

The Ruckus PDF Pattern from PinHead Patterns lets you sew a convertible diaper bag to fit just about all of your baby gear, food, bottles, diapers, and anything else he or she might need. This diaper bag adjusts for just about any carry style. Convert the Ruckus from a purse to a messenger-style bag, or even a hands-free backpack, with just one adjustable strap. The one adjustable strap is long enough to accommodate all three carry styles. To keep everything inside there is an optional top zippered closure, and a magnetic flap closure, so you can make sure everything stays secure. This bag is full of pockets; the front flap has two zippered pockets, perfect for keys, a phone, and a wallet. These pockets allow you to store necessaries at the front, no rummaging at the bottom of your bag searching. Elastic side pockets are sewn to the outside, perfect for bottles! This bag can store up to a quart-size jar in each side pocket, but the pockets are snug enough to keep bottles in place. The is a large zippered pocket on the outside at the back, and several more slip pockets on the exterior front. This bag also offers five more pockets inside. This bag finishes at 13″ long x 4.5″ wide x 10″ high. The adjustable strap measures 35 – 62″ long from clasp end to clasp end.
