If you have one of these:
Then you probably have one of these. Ugh!
And if your little princess is anything like mine, it's not her favorite place to be for the next four or five years. Why not make one that's just for your child's personality? Plus you can add extra cushion, like my chiropractor suggests. Your child will thank you!
It's important to cut these out right sides together, so that when we assemble them, they will match up just right.
- seat back: 3 layers
- seat bottom: 4 layers
- apron front: 1 layer
- side panels: 1 layer
Press the piece in half lengthwise and then press a quarter inch hem line down each side.
14. Cut the bottom edge of the apron, following the contours of the bottom of the seat. Once I cut one side, I flipped it over and used it as a template for the other side so they would exactly match.
20. Sew this on exactly like you would sew on the binding of a quilt. Sew the raw edges of the binding to the raw edges of the cover with the folded edge to the left of your foot. Then pull this edge to the other side of the cover and topstitch along the fold to finish the cover.
Then sew the two strap pieces to the bottom of the piece you sewed around the seat back. Pull these to the back and pin where they overlap. making them fairly tight, but still making sure your seat back is comfortably against the back of the chair. I then sewed an eight inch piece of velcro to each strap so that it is fully adjustable.
Time to hit the road! Take care and come visit me at Lilac Lane for a great giveaway.
