We wanted to make a custom diaper bag but not a bag expert had us turning to take a normal diaper bag and adding patches to customize it.

**Disclaimer – Using links on this blog post and website may pay us a little for recommending there product at no additional cost but we would only recommend things we love. Read the full boring disclaimer available here.

Recently, we threw a Pixar Theme Baby Shower and wanted a diaper bag to match. So, we turned to the Brother Stellaire XJ1 to help us make patches.

Never having made one before, I jumped right in. After making a few, I created this video to show others how easy it is. It sounds hard, but if you have the machine function it’s easy.
