I'm not 100% happy, should I start over?

I made my very first diaper bag tonight. I like it okay, but it's a little floppy, I'm not happy with the inside pocket and the zippered pocket is a little too big. I am happy with the size and the length of the handles. I think I did alright working without a pattern. But I'm a perfectionist and it isn't perfect. I don't really see myself using it.
I was planning to make a matching wetbag, wipe holder, changing pad, and possibly a sling but I don't want to waste my PUL.

Should I take it apart and fix the things I'm not happy with, or just start over and sell or give this one away? I have plenty of fabric so thats not an issue.

How do people make diaper bags stiff? Do they have an extra layer of stiff fabric inside?

I figured it out, I should have used interfacing. I'm going to put this one up FSOT and try again.

I think it looks great, actually. But if you aren't happy with it I am sure you could make some extra $$$ by selling it on here.

It's a great bag, it's just not exactly what I wanted it to be. I'm way too much of a perfectionist.

I put it up FFS.
