My February goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes is to fix up our change pads in preparation for baby #3.

I originally made these two years ago before baby #2 was born. They have seen LOTS of wear and tear over the past two years. I’m not sure they would be up to the challenge of preventing newborn pee from soaking through to our carpet/bed/sofa/whereever we are changing him/her.

So I’m going to make two new change pads this month by re-using the backing fabric that I used for these ones, using a quilted nylon liner with batting on the inside (to catch that newborn pee and make it a bit softer on the hard floors) and maybe putting a softer fabric (flannel?) on the other side.
