There are always tons of baby showers to attend, and homemade gifts are always well received. For a few of my friends baby showers I have made a handy portable changing pad. They are very useful and it is fun to have a cute one! Here is how to make one for yourself, or a friend.
12" X 21" vinyl (2)
12" X 21" flannel (3)
bias tape (binding)
*the narrower the bias tape the more difficult it is to bind the edge of the changing pad because the vinyl is slippery.
1. Cut vinyl, and flannel pieces to size.
2. Layer the vinyl and flannel pieces; vinyl, flannel X3, vinyl.
(I used two different colors of flannel, one for each side of the changing pad. The third piece does not show and is just to provide a little extra padding without being bulky.)
3. Pin the bias tape around the edge.
(Use lots of pins because the vinyl slips when sewing.)
4. Sew around the edge, and you are done!
