Slide 1: ==== ==== For tips on sewing and other crafts, check out www.dawns-deals.com ==== ==== A few years ago, I became a first time grandma to a precious little baby girl. My daughter needed some portable diaper changing pads that were light weight, durable and would fit into her diaper bag. She wanted the changing pads to be super soft and absorbent, so I decided to use flannel fabric and a cotton batting. Along with the fabric and batting, you will need just basic sewing supplies to make your own baby diaper changing pads. Here is what you will need: 1 yard soft baby print flannel fabric 1/2 yard cotton batting Sharp Fabric Scissors Sewing Machine Sewing Supplies - thread, straight pins, measuring tape or ruler, sewing needle Iron and Ironing Board You need to machine wash and dry your flannel fabric to remove sizing before beginning this project. Once fabric has been washed, iron it so that all wrinkles have been removed. This project was made with 1/2" seam allowances. Once your project has been completed, this changing pads are completely machine washable and dryable. Step 1: You will need two pieces of soft flannel fabric (front and back panel) each measuring 17" wide by 20" long. Cut your cotton batting to measure 16 3/4" wide by 19 3/4" long. Step 2: Lay your two pieces of flannel right sides together, with the wrong side facing outwards. Lay your cotton batting on top and pin all three layers together. Your batting piece should be slightly smaller than your flannel. Step 3: Using your sewing machine, sew around 3 1/2 of the sides, leaving 1/2 of one side unsewn so that you can turn it inside out when completed. When sewing, you want to catch the outer edge of the batting so that it will be stitched into place and won't bunch up when laundering. Step 4: Clip your corners and trim seams if necessary before turning the pad inside out so that the
Slide 2: right sides are now facing out. Using coordinating thread, hand sew the opening closed using small uniform in size hand stitching. These homemade baby diaper changing pads make a really nice and inexpensive gift to give to expectant new mothers and ever new mom can use several of these handy quick changing pads. If you have the time and are pretty crafty, you could easily make a few matching baby burp cloths to go along with them or perhaps a matching diaper bag.
