I finally sewed up the fabric I had on Sam’s changing pad into a real cover instead of just wrapping the pad with the fabric and calling it good!
It was really easy and you could make one too!
Wash, iron and cut your fabric. I usually hate washing fabric beforehand, so I won’t tell anyone if you decide to skip that step! You need a piece of fabric about 48” x 32” to fit a standard sized pad (32″L X 16″W X 3-4″H).
Next, create a tube for the elastic. On the inside edge that is raw, fold over 1/2″ or so and iron, all the way around. Then fold it another inch, iron and pin in place.
Cut a 36″ piece of elastic, 5/8″ thickness or smaller (i used 3/8″):
I’m thinking this could be a super easy and quick baby gift if you know what the nursery looks like! It’s always nice to have an extra cover!
I’d love to see yours if you decide to make one!
