All in one changing pad.

When I was hanging out on Pinterest, I saw this cute sewing tutorial.  It's a changing pad with pockets.  I love it even more when I notice you can fold it up and just go anywhere with it. 
When I went to the website I saw she had a list of the supplies I needed, which I love, and on top of that they had a video, of how to make it!!!   Some time the instructions take me a few times to read over before I get it. :) Anyways this is they website.  Made by Marzipan

This is the amazing video on how to do it.

This is the things you'll need......


  • 2/3 yd cotton (main)
  • 1/2 yd cotton (pockets)
  • 2/3 yd clear vinyl
  • 1/2 yd batting
  • Hair elastic
  • Large button
  • Double-fold bias tape (optional)

Cutting Measurements:

  • Main Mat: 23 x 12 in. (2)
  • Vinyl: 23 x 12 in. (1)
  • Pocket Backs: 21 x 7 in. (2)
  • Pocket Tops: 15 x 7 (2)

Only think that you have to be careful about is picking the right size vinyl. You don't want a very thick piece, nor do you want it super thin.  Remember you have four layers your sewing together at once.  So keep that in mind.  Also make sure your tension is set well.  You can always use a few craps with the vinyl to play with it. 
Thank you again Made by Marzipan for your amazing website and tutorials.
