Crawl in Comfort: Baby Knee Pads.

Nelson is officially VERY mobile!!!
He's crawling everywhere and getting into EVERYTHING!!
(he is so mobile in fact - that at times
 I wish it was socially acceptable to crate train him) :)

We have LOTS of hardwood floors & hard tile throughout the house -
and since Nelson is a Mama's Boy -
he needed some padding for those sweet little knees,
so he could hit the tile in style!

So in about 5 minutes, I whipped up some Crawler's Knee Pads!

Want to make some for your cute little crawler?
What you need:
- Nursing Pads (or batting would work too)
- Material - I used shirting knit but anything would work!
- Elastic (4 pieces about 4" for 2 knee pads)


Cut Fabric circles a tad bit larger than your nursing pads.
If you're using batting - my circles are about 4".

Make a Knee Pad Sandwich  --
Fabric Circle (right side up), Elastic (2), Fabric Circle (right side down), Padding


Sew around it, leaving a 1" opening. (back stitch!)


Flip right side out - sew around for extra strength!
These things will get lots of wear & tear!


That's it! You're done!
Put them on your baby and off he goes ... in comfort & style! :)

Oh - and be careful... because your little monkey may love these so much,
that he may take off after dinner before you have time to clean his face! :) 



But he's smiling and let's be honest -
that's all that really matters!!

Somtimes I like to party! Check out these great parties!
