Maddie's Favorite Things

Hi everyone! It's been a great summer traveling and visiting friends and relatives. Grandma and I made a laminated changing pad which came in very handy out on the road. You can make one, too. Here's how.

Materials needed:
2 fat quarters of fun fabric
1-1/4 yard fabric laminate
cotton batting

Laminate the right side of the fat quarters following the directions included with the laminate.
Cut the fat quarters and batting to 16-1/2" x 20".
Use a plate to round off the corners of one of the fat quarters.
Place the fat quarters right sides together and place the batting on the bottom.
Secure with paper clips, do not use pins!
Sew, using a 1/2" seam allowance. Leave a 10" opening.
Trim the batting and bottom fat quarter.
Carefully turn right side out. The laminated fabric will wrinkle. Use a pressing cloth and a steam iron to press out the wrinkles.
Topstitch close to the edge, sewing the opening closed. Topstitch 1/4" in from the edge.
