Making Something with a Bumper Pad

Does anyone have ideas on what to make with a bumper pad? Since it is no longer recommended to use bumper pads in cribs, I'd like to sew something with it - at least use it. Just can't think of anything.

Diaper bag or other tote. Pillows for adults and older children that coordinate with the baby room. Wall hangings. Buy or make wooden or cardboard cubes and cover with the bumper pad.

How about a "draft dodger" for a door? You would fashion the bumper into a long tube-like shape to place at the bottom of an exterior door to prevent any cold air from getting inside. Alternatively, you could create a window pelmet. Cut the appropriate sized piece of plywood and cover with the bumper pad. Install at the top of a window and add accenting curtains, if desired.

Line big baskets with them and use the baskets as toy catchers or organizers.

How about making you self a draft dodger. The thing that you put at the base of the doors to keep out drafts.

How about sewing a couple together(or even tying the short ends with the attached ties) to make a cirle. Then the circles could be combined to make tunnels or soft shapes to play with.

you could make a valance for the windows in your nursery. cut it to size and hem the cut ends, attach ribons every few inches across the top to use as ties on the curtain rod.

Those would be good for knee pads for people that work in gardens or to rest your knees on when scrubbing floors.
