Diaper/ wipe holder changing pad

This totally needs a better name but I am not producing names right now. Anyway, it holds some diapers, diaper creme or baby powder, and a wipe holder ( like Huggies or Pampers).

I bought a vinyl tablecloth and a remnant for the front. I just cut out about how big I would like. Rounded the corners. I doubled the pocket part. I sewed the different pockets on and then flipped everything right sides together and sewed around all but left an opening to flip it right. Once it was flipped, I top-stitched around the whole piece. I then folded it up to see where the ribbon would go with velcro. I sewed the ribbon and velcro on. To fold it up, I flip the flannel side so it would be on top and fold in thirds. This is wipeable as well as machine washable. It will probably not hold up for an incredibly long amount of time because of the vinyl. So I would say machine wash sparingly.

Would you like the pattern? Would you like to buy one off my etsy shop? Let me know. Sorry, I am still getting the hang of tutorials. I will get better. I have several more in the works.

  3. A really neat idea. It would be fun to see a pattern to see how it is made. I think I might have an idea on how to make it a little more durable instead of using vinyl. I just have to do some research to find the name of the product to use instead and if it will be cheaper to use it instead of the vinyl.
    You might have to remind me to do it as I am notorious for procrastinating especially now that I am on vacation ;)

  4. Marianne,
    You can use laminated cotton or regular vinyl or nagahide like stuff. The only problem is it is pretty pricey. If you are lucky you can find the laminated cotton on the net but expect to pay $9 and up per yard.

    Thanks everyone for the great comments.
