    The mats work well if they aren't too big. If the mat is too big it drags when you carry it. But a big mat does have some advantages...

    I had to dig this up because we have another grand baby on the way. It seems to me this design should work very nicely as a portable changing mat. I'll be shopping for PUL fabric to make it waterproof. I love the elegant simplicity of your design, and how versatile it is. Thanks, again!

    I'm glad you like it. I'm betting for a change pad you could put a couple pockets on it.

    Hi! I'm the owner of Bee Sew Happy Boutique, thanks for sharing my car caddy! I've worked hard to perfect the design of this item. It is handy for being on the go with your kids

    what a great idea, and such a creative use for a play mat!
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Thank you for your post. I will be having a grand baby soon (my first) and have been making thing for baby. I think this is a wonderful idea. Thank you so much for sharing this.
    I would greatly like any other ideas anyone has. It has been a long time since I have had a "little one" (daughter is 37) so I need all the help I can get.
    Hello my name is Delilah.
    I like to quilt, Sew, garden and cook.
    I use a vintage Kenmore 15813450 8 stitch sewing machine.
    I call her "Little Girl".

    I remember this post, how could I have forgotten about it? Such a great idea. Passed it on to a friend with 3 little ones. She loves the idea.

    For some kids - like my somewhat autistic grand kid - you will have your best results with a hemmed piece of plain heavy fabric and just straps. Too much pattern would be quite a distraction. It can be upsetting to deal with quilted lines when they are trying to keep toys in standing position. I can see how a quilted pad would work for a changing pad or some toys that just needs to be gathered. I'm thinking a tummy time mat would be a lot of fun done up to tote, too.
