DIY.. On The Go Baby Changing Pad

I am super happy to share this project today. This is my first tutorial as a . I have wanted to make a changing pad for awhile now. My baby is now 20 months old! So, when the opportunity came to submit a project to Pellon, the changing pad seemed like the perfect fit!

This is perfect for a new mom or if you have a new baby in the house. There are a few steps in the project, but you can complete the changing pad in just a few short hours. The pad is soft and perfect for babies to lie on. It rolls up for easy storage and transportation.

Head on over to the Pellon website and check out the. The best part – there is a PDF you can download with step by step photos and instructions.

- Sewing materials – pins, scissors, thread, sewing machine

Before we get started, you need to cut the following pieces:

- Main fabric, Pellon fleece and PUL – Cut 1 piece 24″L x 15″ W

- Binding – Cut binding 2 1/2″W x 90″L. Don’t know how? Check out my tutorial

- Strap fabric – Cut 3 3/4″W x 20″. Cut a longer strap. You can decide at the end how you want the strap to look.

Note – the Pellon vinyl fuse makes a great wipeable surface for the pad. This is an alternative to the PUL. It is easy to do, but follow the instructions on the box.

- Find a circular template to trace at each corner. This will round the corners. I used a small baby bowl, but a cup or saucer will work. Trace with your disappearing ink pen and cut. Repeat for each layer – cotton, fleece and PUL fabric

- Sew your binding and strap pieces. I created easy tutorials for both… check out the binding tutorial and the strap tutorial

- Fold the binding in half and press. Press the entire binding in half

- Lay the 3 fabric pieces lengthwise. Sandwich the Fleece between. Match all corners and gently hand press the wrinkles out. Using a tape measure, measure down 4” from top right corner of pad. Mark with a disappearing ink pen. Pin the strap here

- Pin the binding to the edge. Match raw edge to raw edge

- Place into sewing machine and sew the binding down with a 1/4″ seam allowance. Leave a 2″ tail at the beginning and end of the binding.

- Press the seam. Press closed and then open and press again. Roll the binding towards the backside and cover the raw edge. Press to help set the seam. Place back into sewing machine and edgstitch the binding in place

- Fold the pad up. Roll the strap around the changing pad to figure out velcro placement. Mark with the disappearing ink pen and pin. Stitch velcro down with your sewing machine

That’s it! What do you think? Will you attempt the changing pad? If you have completed this project, I would love to see photographs.. Please email me through the contact page.
