FO Friday -Nappy bag/ changing mat

Happy Friday!

This week I have a sewing project to share with you, which is a bit unusual! I’ve now packed the sewing machine (as it was in baby’s room) but it was great to use it for a last project before he comes along.

I made a very cute portable changing mat/ nappy bag for baby. This isn’t perfect by any means but I love it and it will be super practical, which is what matters. I followed a free pattern from So Sew EasyΒ and it was actually quite easy to follow. The most trouble I had was sewing the binding on the main body, as I had to go through 2 layers of fabric, plus the batting in the middle. I was super proud of my pockets though!

And how cute are those fabrics? The inside is a quilting cotton and the outside is flannelette, which is nice and soft and very washable. It’s all padded so that baby will be comfortable while he gets changed, and hopefully it’ll be a practical solution for when we are not home.

On other baby news, he is so big that I will need to get induced in a couple of weeks if he hasn’t come yet. I’ll keep you posted!

Have a great weekend!

    Oh, yes, that’s very practical and you will use it a lot. The fact that it’s soft cloth and not plastic will be so nice for him. How exciting to be so very close!

    • It is so exciting! and that was my thought too about the cloth being soft rather than plasticky. I hope it will be comfortable for him πŸ™‚
