DIY Diaper Changing Pad Cover

I think this is my best project so far, as far as satisfaction goes. Dresses are awesome, but to make something useful was pretty great. When I was done and put it on the diaper changing pad, I was totally surprised. I couldn’t believe it actually worked and turned out! It fit perfectly. This pad was given to us, as a hand me down, and before Penelope it had already been through 4 babies, so the cover was in a bad, bad place. Now, I get to look at these pretty flowers every time I change Miss P’s diapers. And since our diaper changing station is in our bedroom, it matches much better.

This is what the underneath looks like. It was the first time I have ever done a project with elastic. Elastic used to scare the crap out of me, but it is very simple! Here is the tutorial.

    @Jill…thanks so much!

    @Lindsey…bust it out! And you can cut up old dresses like me instead of buying new fabric. I am going to start being on the hunt for print flat sheets to cut up at garage sales or really on sale at bedding stores.

    This is awesome! And what a fantastic idea to find old sheets and dresses to re-purpose. I'm nesting and this is perfect =D
