Changing table cushions

One thing I quickly noticed about T. soon after he was born is that he doesn't like to lay down flat! He was a massive wriggler on the changing table until I put a cushion under his head. Suddenly he could see a little more of me and what was going on and he was content to let me clean up those nasty poops!

But of course, a baby needs a cute changing table cushion cover, so I hand-stitched this from vintage Laura Ashley fabric during T.'s naps when he was a few weeks old:

Back of the cushion:

 And here's little man sitting up on his changing table with his cushion on it:

I added a zip in T.'s cushion, but for extra baby safety, this time I have created a fold at the bag to close the material together after inserting the cushion:

I sewed the patchwork by machine on this girly cushion but I hand stitched little missy's full name into it. The cushions measure 44 cm x 44cm, which I found to be a great general size for changing tables.

And here's little man still using his changing cushion at 15 months! Who'd have thought a bum change could be so much fun! :

If you'd like a changing table cushion, I'm making them for 15 Euros which includes the cushion insert and a hand-embroidered full name or initials. Just leave me a comment or email me if you'd like one!
