Minky / PUL Change Mat Cover

Mr A and I were kindly given a changing mat for Coco, and due to space constraints in the nursery, we’ve set it up on a chest of drawers for changing.

Having heard a lot of babies who love nappy free time, and who get a little ‘wee’ happy, I thought it would be best to make a waterproof change mat cover to go over the change mat which will allow us to simple wipe down the cover instead of having to wash the whole thing when ‘accidents’ occur.

I thought having a completely waterproof fabric across the change mat might be a little cold for Coco, so decided to do a combined minky / PUL combination. This will allow Coco to lay on the warm minky, whilst we change nappies on the waterproof PUL section.

I used this tutorial as the guide, and simply swapped out fabrics to suit what I wanted. One piece of advice is to make sure you measure your change mat before you sew or cut, because I followed this tutorial thinking it was a universal size, but it turns out our change mat is waaaay bigger! Here’s how it turned out – I’m super happy with it, and the minky is sure to keep Coco nice and warm, whilst the PUL is sure to be easy to wipe down for any ‘accidents’ whilst nappy changing.

  1. I’m about to share some life experience wisdom…ALWAYS put a clean wipe/flannel over the penis. Always. Otherwise it will be raining wee EVERYWHERE. And at the 3am change/feed this isn’t something you really want. True story.
