Grab-N-Go Changing Pad

The absolute best part about this little blog tour of ours is getting to see all of the different ways that designers are using our Fusible Flex-Foam™ products. From handbags to organizers, clutches to changing pads, zipper pulls to baskets… Wow!! You all are amazing:).

Today’s feature project comes from Lisa Swenson Ruble of Love to Color my World. A mom to three, Lisa is no stranger to the diaper bag and the sheer volume of things that get toted around on a day-today basis. When she first received the Flex-Foam samples, her mind went immediately to a Grab-N-Go Changing Pad — something small and stylish that could be used in place of a bag full of supplies. We love it and as a mom to a 2-year old with one on the way, I’m particularly smitten. I’ll absolutely be making one of these!!

To learn more about Lisa’s process and her thoughts about using the Flex-Foam 2-Sided Fusible, head on over to her blog. (Added bonus? she is also running a giveaway! )

Grab-N-Go Changing Pad
Sew a simple changing pad to carry with you when you don’t want to lug the whole diaper bag! An outer pocket will hold travel wipes and a diaper or two. Fusible Flex-Foam holds this changing pad together and makes a comfy surface for changing the baby. Sample used fun and trendy prints from Benartex‘s Safari Playground collection by Greta Lynn for Kanvas– modern circles on the outside for mom and a fun zoo-themed print on the inside for the little guy!
