Introducing STELLA! Stella is the ideal diaper bag featuring six interior pockets to keep you

completely organized. With two O-rings on the strap, you can easily snap the bag to your

stroller using most stroller straps. The key hook at the top of the bag keeps your keys handy so you never have to dig for them again. Snap baby gear like pacifiers, toys, and anti-bacterial gel to the key hook or the O-rings. And, since Stella doesn't look like a diaper bag you don't have to be a mom to enjoy the style and function of this bag.

This versatile bag works as a diaper bag, purse, day bag, activity tote, school bag, travel bag ...and the list goes on and on. Add a zipper closure or zipper cell phone pocket for a truly unique customized bag. Available in many new chevron colors.

Each item is hand-cut and sewn in Bozeman, MT from original designs. Specializing in custom crafted bags and accessories you can choose your fabric and features for a truly one-of-a-kind bag. Designed for style, created to last and as always putting the "fun" in function, Maranda Lee Designs feels every woman should have a bag they love to look at and love to use.
