I've never done anything quite like this before, and it turned out better than I planned (a bonus)! After I finished it up today, it got me thinking that this would be a great type of design (and easy to put together) for making diaper changing pads... i.e. a great handmade shower gift that you can customize to coordinate with the mom's nursery/diaper bag.
It could also easily be a great table top ironing pad. Instead of quilting interfacing/batting, you would use the insulation you use for making pot holders (probably a few layers would be best).
All I know is... now jelly rolls are going to be even more irresistible at the fabric store! I'm in TROUBLE!!!!
