So, yesterday, or was it Friday night, after viewing my daughter’s photo stream clearly showing that the baby, my first granddaughter, had dropped, I decided it was time to make some diaper changing pads. I did a FaceTime with her yesterday, and saw my very verbal grandson also. She told me she had gotten the changing pads I made 2 years ago out of storage, in expectation of the new arrival, sometime in the next two weeks.
Mr. Man has completely outgrown the changing table attached to the crib. So, this time, I decided to make some whole cloth diaper changing pads with more of a pink, girly theme, although I am becoming more and more uni-sex thinking. I went through my “stash” and found an old pink and white striped sheet, a couple pieces of floral material, a pink gingham floral, and a couple pieces I had bought for random reasons. I cut them to sizes approximately 15 1/2″ x 24, some more like 18″ x 26, some less or more.
Yesterday, I matched up backs and fronts. I had to cut from my new batting roll that I bought for a friend, but she wasn’t using, my second now. After matching up backs and fronts and placing batting accordingly, I started free-motion quilting different designs. First a straight stipple, then one with stars, one with hearts, one with spirals, a Super-Daisy, and one with a grid pattern with the walking foot.
All the binding is from previous projects, totally scrappy, some just meshed well with each pattern or design.
I told my daughter I was sending them all and she could pick and choose which she wanted to keep and use. Then, maybe, I’ll have some to add to my “stash” of things “laying around“.
Q-Tip #? You can make extra things to have “laying around” or “sitting around” in case someone wants to pay you money to buy these things.
