Its been a while since I needed a diaper bag, and I was amazed at how quickly I forgot everything that needs to go with baby when you leave the house. Of course with all that stuff, you need something to put it in. Something large… and pretty.
That is why I love my One In A Mel’lion hobo bag. Yes, its technically a purse, but it also makes an awesome beach bag, park bag and diaper bag because its big enough to hold everything that three kids in diapers need when I go somewhere with Baby Belle and the two grand babies. Or to the beach or park with just my crew and all their stuff that I must carry for some reason. I have fit 8 diapers including this one from Chubby Elephant Diapers, this changing pad from Monkey In The Mailbox, a bottle, a sippy cup, three complete outfits, two burp cloths, a package of wipes and snacks in this bag with room to spare! Yet this bag does not look overwhelmingly large!
I have been using it for a couple months now and have even washed it a few times. It has amazingly held up to my families abuse of it. It’s been stuffed to the max, pulled on, thrown around, tossed on the floor, dragged across the beach, pushed down a few slides, kicked aside and it still looks amazing. The fabric is a beautiful vintage print that is easy to clean and care for. I love that the strap ties so I can easily change the length wear it like a messenger bag, or just on my shoulder depending on what we are doing. The inside pocket is large and is a great place to keep my wallet, car keys, some change and a pacifier. The only thing I would of changed is a zipper closure to keep things from falling out, though that only happens when I get it too full, so it’s not really a problem.
I am looking forward to saving up to purchase at least one more (who am I kidding, as many as possible) bag from One In A Mel’lion as soon as possible. I love her vintage fabrics and fun prints and the quality can’t be beat.
Purses not your thing? Mel also makes soap, cloth pads, wet bags, apron tops, baby legs and more!
