It’s a baby boom in the Lil Blue Boo family. I have two brand new nieces…..one is only a week old. And of course there’s the recent announcement Boo helped me make.  I love round diaper changing pads and wanted to make a few for gifts.  I’d been stocking up on these pretty vinyl tablecloths from Marshall’s and TJ Maxx because they were all under $5. I had a few projects in mind for them and this was one of them.
