Instructions

  • Baby Travel Blanket-3

Step One

After you’ve laid out the fabrics in the pattern you like, begin sewing the rows together with a 3/8″ seam allowance. Sew completed rows together to form the quilted top.

  • Baby Travel Blanket-4

Step Two

Cut the last 9″ square in half. Fold one panel in half and sew along edge. Flip right side out and repeat steps with other panel.

  • Baby Travel Blanket-5

Step Three

Layer the quilted top over the fleece interfacing and the protective Shield over both of them (right sides of the Shield and quilt facing each other.) Place the handles on opposite sides of the center edge (pointing inward) and pin everything in place.

  • Baby Travel Blanket-6

Step Four

Sew a 3/8″ seam around entire pad, making sure to leave an 8″ opening to turn the project right side out.

  • Baby Travel Blanket-7

Step Five

Fold exposed edges inward and sew a 1/2″ seam around the entire pad.

  • Baby Travel Blanket-9

Step Six

Once you pad is complete, just fold the two sides in, fold up the middle, and then carry the pad by the handles. Super easy!

Step Seven

The Shield layer on the back will protect the pad from the elements and in a pinch, work equally well as a changing pad!
