After finishing several double sided wipes, couple of wool soakers, this Mama was feeling confident enough to try her hand at DIY changing pad covers.
The fact that store covers are 16.99 each and I'm short on cash to spend on pretties was another factor pushing me.
I found a cute tutorial online here, and this couldn't have been easier! Even without a sewing machine, it just took a little more careful than usual hand stitching, and the result is spectacular so far. The measurements and instructions are spot on and easy to understand, and I bet it would have taken me even less time had I been using a sewing machine. Without a machine, it took me barely under an hour to size up, cut down and stitch up. I still have to go around making the tube to feed the elastic through it, which I'm judging from my own speed will take less than 10 minutes.
