Difficulty: ★ ★ (2 of 3)
The diaper bag is sewn in woven fabric (that is, fabric that does not stretch). Since fabric has a tendency to shrink when you prewash it, I recommend buying a little extra.
The On the Go diaper bag is made of a cover, a lining, and three pieces for pockets. You can choose to use different fabrics on the inside and outside of the bag or have the same fabric throughout. To make the diaper bag more stable, support fabric is ironed on the cover and all pockets.
The diaper bag holds everything you could possibly need to manage diaper changes on the go. There is room for both large and small nappies, a changing mat, wet wipes, bags for poo nappies, changing clothes and why not e.g. a book for the eager diaper changing client ;)
The finished diaper bag is 40 x 27 cm large, 20 x 27 cm when folded.
The diaper bag can be decorated with a sewing mark, e.g. my simple sewing marks in cork fabric .

What does stretch percentage mean?
The term "stretch percentage" is used to indicate how much a fabric stretches.
This should not be confused with the proportion of elastane present in the fabric (eg jersey 95% cotton, 5% elastane).
Some patterns are created with a certain percentage of stretch in mind, and if your fabric has a different percentage of stretch, you may need to adjust the size.
In all By Sandramaria patterns' product descriptions, it is clearly stated if you need fabric with a certain stretch price to be able to sew the project. In that case, you see this even before you buy the pattern.
You can e.g. use this stretch guide to determine the stretch percentage of your fabric.
