One of my co-workers is pregnant.  I wanted to make her something for her baby shower, but I will be moving before long, so I thought I'd give it to her early.  I gave her a list of several ideas, all of which I found here on craftster.  She chose this one: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=290802.0.  However, I couldn't find a bathmat like the one that was described.  So, I decided to use a normal bath towel, cut in half.  I took my co-worker shopping and she helped me pick out the towel, the fabric, and the ribbon.  I then took the supplies home and got busy.  I gave it to her at another friend's birthday party so she wouldn't expect a gift. 

First, the look on the recipient's face when I surprised her with it!

Another picture of the surprised recipient.

Here's the happy recipient posing with the rolled up changing pad.

A blurry picture of the stitching on the binding, with the changing pad rolled up.

Laid out flat.

With ruler, so you can get an idea of how long the longest side is.

All nice and rolled up, sleeping bag style.

I also made a tag for it, which basically said it was made by me! Smiley  Thanks for looking!  Comments and criticism welcome!
