Convertible Baby Bag
I bought this bag the day it came out in Tutti Frutti. The color is gorgeous, it would be perfect for a new mom with a baby girl. At first I thought it may be too small (i'm a bit of an over packer) but the bag is actually very big inside. The interior is water resistant and can be wiped clean, and there is also a changing pad in the front pocket. Overall I love this bag :]

Great size and shape; backpack function needs work
I tried this item out in a store before purchasing the pattern I wanted online. I love the comfort of true backpack-style bags, but I often feel like I'm digging in a bottomless pit for that cherished box of raisins or baggie of Cheerios because of the shape of the backpack. The size and shape of the convertible bag are perfect for me. However, stringing the long strap through the ring at the top of the bag (for backpack-style wearing) was not very comfortable. When you try to put it on or take it off--one shoulder at a time--the whole bag slides down the strap toward the other arm. My solution is to get crafty! When I receive it, I'm going to make new backpack-style straps for it...two separate straps instead of one. The metal ring at the top of the bag is rectangular and has plenty of space for two clasps to be attached to it, rather than stringing the one original long strap through. I'll also make the straps padded by using some quilted fabric or possibly stuffing them with some batting. I'll check back in and let you know how it works!

This bag is perfect! I used the traditional VB baby bag hen I had my son, but the straps always slipped. When we travelled, I had to swap everything to a backpack baby bag. This bag is perfect! It's roomy and solves the strap issue and need to swap. I wear it short, cross body, and backpack. Now that another baby is on its way, I'll need it even more. It's really roomy, too. Lots of pockets! The ONLY downside is the outer magnetic pocket that holds the changing pad. If the rest of the bag is full, the flap will not close and will stick up. No amount of pulling and attempting to get it to close will work. It will NOT stay shut. A snap closure or a zipper would be an excellent change to this would they ever revamp the bag. Otherwise, it's amazing and I love it!
