Sorry about the pun, but I couldn’t resist. (What is it about puns that is so eye-rolling, anyway? Why are they treated with such scorn? Everyone uses them at some point, and yet they are so often mocked.) Anyway, just some simple sewing for Baby #2 (who is not due to arrive on the scene until June, yet is still making him/herself very much a part of our lives right now). I made this diaper changing mat out of an old hand towel, some cotton fabric, and some ric-rac (I would have preferred ribbon or bias-tape for the ties, but I didn’t have any suitable options on hand).
A good way to repurpose an old towel and prevent your baby’s butt from touching surfaces it shouldn’t.
It rolls up so as to be easily portable. I also made this receiving blanket from a yard of polka dot flannel I had on hand. So easy, yet so satisfying. I can see many more of these blankets in my future . . . but oh, how I wish I had a serger! That would make it even easier! Are you listening, Serger Fairy?
