Eva as a DIY Onbag

Isn't Eva pretty!

I'm a big fan of Eva (a Didymos Wrap in case you are wondering!), I have a shortie with a lovely fringe and I'm very fond of it.

So it was lovely to receive pictures of this wrap conversion.

Jenneken says:

"...this one I made out of an old Didymos Eva wrap ringsling.

It had a tear and I didn't trust it anymore so I cut it up into pieces and made an Onbag that's in between the baby and the classic bag.

I had to cheat with the long straps since the wrap was only 2 meters long, but with a double seam it works fine...

I put the lining only on the inside of the bag and not on the straps.

I use this bag every day now"

Judith's DIY Leather Onbag

I'm so impressed with this bag!

I had thought of trying one in leather but I really don't have the skills or expertise for it...

Judith (who is also the author of the DIY instructions in Dutch) has made this with a lovely bright striped lining.

Judith says:

"I wasn't sure my sewing machine could make it through a few layers of leather but it worked out all just fine.

I had to make a few changes because leather is slightly different to work with and I had to change the measurements to fit the pattern for the peace of leahter I had available.

Because the onbag is a little smaller than the baby onbag (27x27 cm, straps 14cm wide) I assumed the purpose is different. I'm going to use it for citytrips (not a whole day, just one or two hours)

I left away the sidepocket and loops because of this changed purpose (and I like to backcarry my daugthers)."

It is so great to have such talented designers and seamstresses from all over the world contributing to this design.  I am overwhelmed by the creativity and talent which is pouring in from all directions!

Stacy's Artichoke Anathama

Stacy writes a blog called 'Artichoke Anathema', and has written about her Onbag project.  She says it should be making me rich!

 Stacy writes :

"I have completed many projects. One of which was a diaper bag. The hospital sent us home with a simple black Similac bag that I used after I removed the labels. It really wasn't big enough for outings with the cloth diapers plus I was lugging around purse, diaper bag, and baby. There are tons of great free projects on the web, some of which are free for a reason and others that should be making someone rich. The Onbag should be making some rich. It is genius; diaper bag with extremely long straps to be worn around your body and accommodate your baby wearing! My purse fits in in to boot! ...

Wal-Mart $2 cotton with a bit of lycra. It is a cool charcoal color. I didn't want black but yet needed versatility in color. Grey. Who goes wrong with grey?

The straps are tied criss-cross, through the loops, across one another to go back through the loops, then finally knotted together. I think I need to make a little loop to go around the upper part of the straps to keep them closer in at my shoulder blades. I thought the 14" width would not be too wide, but alas, it is....

Opened up, here you can see the pockets and lining. I got a great deal on the salmon colored raw silk. Being one of my favorite colors and fabrics, I couldn't resist."

Kim's DIY Bag - The Tester...

"I'm not an experienced sewer, so I was kind of scared that I couldn't do this. I've been ready to order on of Sara's Onbags a million times, but LE Didy's kept being released, so I never found the money.

And since no one wanted to buy my Aqua Hopp Florenz on the Dutch babywearing forum I thought I might as well use it for an Onbag.

But I made a trial version first. From darkblue Ikeacurtains I had stocked in the attick, and some shiney fuchsia lining. I found the pattern quite a puzzle, but it all worked out in the end.

I finished the whole thing just after midnight... I'm getting the hang of this sewing-thing. I want do do it againnnn! "

I think Kim did a great job - I can't wait to see the wrap-conversion!

Onbag Classic

The Onbag Classic is here!

12 beautiful colour combinations - some funky, some classic and some just lovely!

You can choose from:
Black/Pink, Black/Gold, Black/Silver
Brown/Gold, Brown/Blue, Brown/Pink
Navy/Blue, Navy/Silver, Navy/Gold
Red/Pink, Red/Silver, Red/Blue

The outer fabric is cotton drill, which is sturdy but soft, and each bag is lined in lovely two-tone taffeta.

The Big Release - the Onbag is going into production!

This is a very exciting moment - I'm going into production with my bags! The first run will be short - so numbers may be a little limited.


I've found a great manufacturer and a whole range of amazing fabrics- I can't tell you how hard it was to narrow them down! On the right you can see the combinations I've settled on (the outer fabric is on the top, the lining on the bottom of each pair)...
