So I FINALLY got around to washing my diaper bag. I'd been putting it off for some reason. Lazy I guess. Anyways, I'm so impressed with how new it looks even though it's old! I got it when DD was probably 6 months or so...but it look almost brand new. It's a Petunia Pickle Bottom Boxy Backpack like this:
If you need a new bag, I'd definitely recommend it. The 'glazed fabric' is the key to long lasting. It's so durable! I've heard the more satin type finish catches on everything and looks like garbage even just after 1 kid.
So ya, totally in love with my diaper bag still. LOL, good thing because it wasn't cheap!
I wish mine looked new!
Mine aren't glazed or embroidered, just the canvas type fabric that PPB uses. They are looking pretty dirty, even after washing, but I can't justify splurging on a new one! I want the Touring Tote.
Have you kept your eyes on the used sites? I got a Touring Tote used a while back. I washed it up but haven't used it much as DD is potty trained. I did use it for swimming stuff a time or two. It's definitely smaller than the Boxy Backpack but good for some scenarios.
I'm not sure I even know what the canvas looks like....
Though I love PPB prints, I can't ever see myself spending that much on a diaper bag (unless maybe it had a holster compartment in it for my gun)... But Woot! for it coming clean and looking brand new, that is a great quality in a long lasting item.
