Sewing Bee Fabrics Tutorial
Make Your Own Baby Changing Mat

How to make a baby changing mat tutorial

Our baby changing mat was falling apart and looking pretty nasty so it was time for a quick and easy upgrade!

What you will need:

2 x rectangles PVC tablecloth / oilcloth - I used 48cm x 70cm

2 U shaped/ semi circle pieces. I used a 7cm x 7cm square and curved off the edges.

1 piece of wadding. I used 46cm x 90cm

How to make it:

First, roll the top 20cm of the wadding and hand stitch in place.

Take your U shape PVC and start sewing it right side together at each side on 1 end of 1 of your PVC rectangles. Curve the underneath piece as you go by frequently stopping with the needle down but presser foot lifted up and rearranging. This is actually easier to do without pinning. I prefer to sew PVC tablecloth with a roller sewing machine foot as it rolls the presser foot over the surface preventing it from getting stuck. I also use a very wide stitch width otherwise the perforations made in the PVC can cause it to rip (think of it like thick perforated paper).

Place your 2 rectangles right sides together and pin the top and sides. Be careful to only pin in the seam allowances as the more holes you make, the less waterproof it will be.

Sew along the top and 2 sides leaving the bottom free by a couple of centimetres.
