I didn't have a pattern but used the you tube video as a guide. I've made three so far and have another one cut ready to sew.

I found out it's a boy, and their choices for baby "stuff" was more browns and blues, etc., so this one didn't really fit them. )

Size:  106.8 KB are the measurements for the board we had made for our ironing board. Only 1/2 inch plywood
    was used and held on with three pegs which turn to undo. Covered with a layer of batt, folded in half - therefore two
    layers, and silver iron cover stapled onto the bottom of the board. Light enough and Easy to lift off when I need to do shirts, etc.
