    Baby throw from bumper pads

    I made this from a bumper pad found at good will...couldn't pass up all the applique...so I transformed it.
    I have another 3 panels to use for a second one. I enhanced the sections with quilting. It was fun.

    That is very cute. I love the applique and I would have had a hard time passing that up too.

    Wow GREAT idea!!! I often see them and wish I could do something with them, now I can!!!! Quick question.... Did you wash all the fabrics first since you were adding it to something already washed??

    Thank you for a very good idea!! I kept the bumper pad cover from my last granddaughter for the same reason, it was patchwork, embroidery, and appliques. Now I know what to do with it!!

    Love this idea. Now I have so many ideas for the baby items that I have for the boys. Guess it helps to think outside the box sometimes. This board is getting me to do that more. Thanks!!

    I love to see things get upcycled! I think it takes lots of talent to do that!
