Does This Look Like a Diaper Bag?

I found this sweet homemade bag yesterday at Goo.dwill for $3. It looks like it's never been used! Some sweet sewer put lots of effort into it--it's stabilized with interfacing and even has a hard plastic insert (covered by a fabric sleeve, of course), to keep the bottom stable:

Here's a shot of the inside pockets, they are the same on each side. Also, the stripey fabric on the outside is divided into pockets as well.

Miss B says that it looks like a diaper bag, complete with bottle slots on the ends. It measures approximately 10"x15". So should I fill it with baby things for a gift? Or can I get away with using it for a handbag without people wondering if that poor old lady has misplaced her baby?

I think you could get away with it as a purse. I love the colors...;)

I'm seeing a diaper bag too sweet sister! Maybe it's b/c I see diaper bags and baby's faces in everything I look at these days?? I dunno...I think it's the straps. Too cute though, and I'd at least pile my junk in it and head to book club or somewhere. Hey...if neighbor lady has a girl, fill it to the brim and give it to her? Or keep it for yourself and hope for another baby! ;-0

The quilt is so pretty!!! I love quilts with simple lines like that. Won't that be fun for you and your Dr. man to cuddle under next winter?? Or maybe you should put it on Jeanne and Tom's bed!! Ha!

I miss you lady. Maybe when I quit havin' babies and hub's finds a job, I can sneak back down to W.L. for some good ol' fun!
love you!!!

Thanks for visiting my blog! I think you could definitely get away with using this as a purse. I love the quilt that you are making. I like to sew, but haven't made anything since last summer.
