I have a super crafty friend, Carolyn.  She made all of these bags/purses out of old jeans.

Aren't they darling?!  LOVE them!

They inspired me to create something out of my old denim...

So I started cutting.  (I"m not big on patterns... I tried to make a pattern, 
but it wasn't working... so I just started creating)

I decided on a cute pirate lining.  My boys love it!

And now I have a new diaper bag!
I should have taken more pictures... but it's hard to photograph the inside of a bag.
There are pockets on both of the outside panels.  Pockets on the inside.
A zipper pouch in the middle - as a dividing section of the bag.
And I sewed in elastic loops to hold sippy cups or bottles.

It was fun to create something new out of something that would 
usually be thrown out or sent off to the local DI.

Thanks for the inspiration Carolyn!

Amy, I came here checking to see if you had posted pictures of your bag yet. Funny thing is I made one today, and it looks a little like yours. I didn't use a pattern either. How funny! But, I didn't do all the crafty stuff inside, but I did line it. I'll have to go post a pic of mine now.
