Right before baby Peanut was born, I made a few projects with the help of my Mom, it was so much fun to sew with her, specially when were working on projects for her first grand-baby. Now I’ve been using this diaper changing mat for (
6 months) 10 months and still LOVE it. It saved us so many times in the car when Conner was little and we had accidents very often.
I actually took the photos for this post when Conner was 6 months old, now he’s 10 months, so it’s very cute to see how much bigger he looks now. Back then he was just learning how to crawl, now he’s learning how to walk and GOSH! I thought it was trouble back them =] Now changing his diaper is a lot more challenging because he doesn’t stay still and he hates when I lay him down (yup, he hates to go to bed too) so I don’t use the mat as often as I used to, because sometimes I change his diaper when he’s standing (pretty funny to see!) But I love how long this mat has lasted with all the use we gave it, definitely keeping it for the second (in a couple more years)
I made this mat so that I could roll it, secure it and store it in my diaper bag, I made this along with a nursing cover and a cover for the car-seat with the same fabric, and my diaper bag is a different pattern but the same brown and turquoise colors, so everything goes well together =] Below you can see how the cover un-rolls, it’s very easy but sometimes I used to trow it on the diaper bag just folding it 2 times whenever I was in a hurry and then roll it and make it pretty while restocking the diaper bag.
