Changing Pad Cover

            Recently made a couple of changing pad covers for the new baby in the neighborhood.  I used the directions provided by A Small Snipet.

I wanted this cover to be soft for the newborn so I started with a receiving blanket.  To keep with the theme of the baby's room, an elephant was first machine embroidered on the corner of the blanket.
The applique was download FREE from bunnycup.com. It's called Little Elephant Applique.  Several file types are available in one zip loaded file.

 Then fabric from a fleece blanket was sewn on the edges of the receiving blanket to create the size needed for the dimensions as directed in the instructions.

Instead of elastic, I used a string to pull as tightly as needed. 

Thanks to the FREE programs:

  1. that's really cute. I have yet to try any applique projects on my embroidery machine.

    1. Ann this "Little Elephant Applique" would be a nice simple one to use first for great success, and because the download would probably have the type of file you need.

  2. Adorable! My son and DIL just announced they are expecting! I like your idea of a changing pad cover as a gift.

  3. This is gorgeous! I love the sweet little applique you made. ~Diane
