At the beginning of February I made a goal for the Lovely Year of Finishes challenge to fix up our change pads in preparation for baby #3. Success!

Monster change pads

I found some very cute monster flannel along with a couple others that matched nicely. I used the same fabrics for both change pads partly because I picked up enough for both (and then some) and didn’t feel like making a second trip out, and partly because the boys liked them so much. I kept it simple. I used the original change pad fabric for the backside, and put a new vinyl layer (which came sandwiched between light batting layers and thus made the pads softer) on the inside.

Thus far the new pads seem far more durable, are a slightly better size, are snugglier, and elicit much more cooperation during diaper changes than the old ones.
