A Play or Changing Mat for Baby Otto
A new little man is in the world and I had to make something for him. Otto is the babe of a former co-worker. He is sweet and has all kinds of dark hair just like his Mama. This little changing pad or play mat is what I made when Sew Mama Sew did their doll quilt sew along. I used some charm squares from Moda's Recess and some blue I had on hand from the panels on my boy's windows. I bound it with some remnant navy and blue cotton from Joann's. I added the ribbon so this would be easily portable. Stippling still seems to daunting, so I used my walking foot and just sewed diagonals over the squares. One of these days I'll get brave enough to stipple, I promise. This little bundle with a onesie from our favorite local coffee shop will find the baby this week.
