Baby Changing Mat/ Diaper Clutch Tutorial

Baby Changing Mat and Diaper Clutch Tutorial
I've recently discovered Laminate Cotton Fabric . It's cute fabric that is laminated which is perfect for snack bags, diaper bags or diaper mats (basically anything you need wipe down easily)  I didn't have one for my first baby, but now that we're having another little one, I've decided that it would have been very useful to have. The nice thing about this changing mat is that it can also be used to hold diapers and wipes.  See below for the full tutorial.

Baby Changing Mat/Diaper Clutch Tutorial

30"x13" cotton fabric (for the outside) (I used Ocean Fish Tales-Salt Air by Moda Fabric)
30"x13" Laminate Cotton Fabric or PUL fabric (or any water proof fabric) (I used Flutter by Quilted Fish for Riley Blake Fabrics)
4-5 inch of elastic (i just used an old hairband)
one button
1. a - place your cotton and laminated fabric right sides together. On the back of your cotton fabric lay the interface/stablizer
1. b - choose one of the ends and place your elastic in the middle of the cotton and laminate fabric with loop facing in.
1. c - Pin the elastic in place

2. pin around all the edges really well. The laminate fabric can be slippery, so make sure you pin really well. Then sew all the way around the edges leaving a 4-5 inch gap at one end. 
3. After you sew, turn your fabric right side out. Iron then top stitch around the edges. 
4. a - fold up the non elastic end 6 1/2 inches. 
4. b - pin and sew to the sides of the mat. You just made your pocket. 
now fold up and add sew on your button where it fits. And your done.

  4. Thanks for linking this up to my Pity Party last week. I'll be featuring it tomorrow! xo

  5. Thanks for the tutorial. I just made one last week for a baby shower.

  6. How did you sew on the button at the end without the thread showing through to the inside of the changing mat where the infant would lay?

    1. great question. I sewed the button to just the outer layer of the clutch. To make sure it didn't go through, I put my finger on the inside of the mat to make sure the needle didn't go through both layers. I hope that answers your question
