I can’t help but think back to this time of year last year. So much has changed. Right about now I was finding out that I was diagnosed with preeclampsia and put on bed rest. I was only 26 weeks along and was hoping to make it to 32 weeks. Luckily, my cute little lady held off until 39 weeks. Now she is almost 9 months old and super happy, healthy and doesn’t sit still for long. I was very blessed to make it through that hard time and am so glad I get to enjoy hanging out with Miss JJ. We take all sorts of adventures together. Shopping, doctors appointments, lunch with friends, and lots more. I have been a bit of a germaphobe with Miss JJ and I’ve been trying to let it go, but I always have to have a diaper changing pad when we are on the go. I want to share with you my easy no sew diaper changing pad so that you don’t have to worry about the germs either.
This changing pad is easy to make, not bulky so it takes up hardly any space in the diaper bag and you can pick a fabric to match your style.
Let’s get creating!
No Sew Diaper Changing Pad Tutorial
- Pinking Shears (scissors that cut a triangle pattern like this: ^^^^^^) or a pinking blade for a rotary cutter
- 3/4 yard of Waterproof “PUL” (Polyurethane Laminate) Fabric used for making cloth diapers
- measuring tape
Decide on the perfect size for your changing pad. I did mine as 34 x 20 inches.
Measure out and mark where to cut. I did this using a rotary blade mat with measurements on it. You could also mark the spot with a marker and line it up with a yard stick or other straight item like a poster board which is what I used.
Cut out the pad with the shears or blade. Be sure to cut each side of the pad with the pinking shears. If any places aren’t straight try to cut a little more off to get it straight, but overall a small flaw won’t affect the pad.
That’s it! Super simple and handy. Now I don’t have to worry about dreaded diaper changing in public restrooms. Not only is it helpful for that but when we are at the grandparent’s we can avoid getting any diaper mess on the floor or their furniture.
The fabric is great because it makes it easy to clean and wipe up if there is any sort of a mess on it while out. Then just toss it in the wash and you are good to go on your next adventure. Grab some Huggies and head out the door.
This changing pad makes a great gift idea. It is so easy to pair with diapers and wipes for a useful baby gift. Plus, the thin design of the pad makes it perfect to toss in the diaper bag but not take up too much valuable space.
While we were out doing some shopping at Family Dollar the other day, I saw a great deal on our favorite diapers, Huggies. Plus, all of the great Baby Items you can get at Family Dollar for an every day low price are awesome!
The cool thing about Family Dollar is they have everything you need for a one stop shopping trip. I love the wide variety, great deals and that it is easy to find what I need. It make it a great place for a one store shopping trip to find the best things for baby, which makes mom happy.
