Diaper Bag Woes

The diaper bag I've been working on didn't come out as well as I would have liked. The top w/the zipper was too small. Not sure how that happened. So, I had to scratch that because I didn't have enough fabric to make another (that's what happens when you buy clearance fabric unfortunately). So, I decided I could either leave it as an open bag or find some way to have it close. I sewed ribbon on it for a closure. Looks ok, but not sure how practical that will be.

If that weren't bad enough, the changing pad didn't come out very well either. The wipes cover is ok, but I'm so not good at binding, so I'm not happy with it either. It just turned out to be one of those projects that didn't want to cooperate.

I told my niece I'll send it to her and she can judge it for herself. If she doesn't want it, that's fine. I told her I'd make her bibs, burp cloths, or something else instead. I really don't want to try another diaper bag. I've made these before so I'm not sure why I had such a problem with this one. Maybe it's because I don't really like the girl it's going to?
