Another essential of our Nursery, Travel Changing Mat!
We will need some fabric, an old piece of blanket to put it inside for softness, double folded finishing tape to sew all around, piece of elastic, bottom and plastic sheet. You could purchased it in the local fabric store but I have decided to use a shower curtain from “dollar” store. Much cheaper and result is the same.
Then I have sewn it on the piece of blanket with same shape. Next step is the plastic sheet. I have double folded the sheet on the edges for better hold. I had to sew it piece by piece, side by side as the plastic did sleep on the fabrics and it did no look good. But no worries! That is why we have double folded finishing tape to cover all those imperfections.
I have also added two lines of stitching across in the places where mat suppose to break down for folding it.
After I have covered edges with finishing tape I have cut off all the extra pieces of plastic sheet which were still sticking out on the top. Then added bottom and elastic band to hook it up when needed.
That is it! Our brand new, unique travel changing mat is complete.
