My little guy had red marks on his neck from the car seat so I had to hurry up and make some covers for the straps! I used scraps I had and some velcro so they really didn’t cost much.
Thick Fabric (mine reminded me of a Santa suit)
Our straps are 1 1/2 inches thick, so all of the measurements are for that size. Also, don’t forget that you are doing everything listed here twice, because you need to make a set of two.
1. Cut your thicker scraps 5 1/2 inches by 5 1/2 inches. I just used one for each side but if you want to have more padding you can add another layer or two.
2. Cut your decorative fabric, 7 inches by 7 inches.
3. Center your thick fabric in the middle of your cute fabric. Fold the edges of the decorative fabric over twice and iron it in place. Sew the edges down.
4. Cut your velcro strips to 5 inches and sew them on.
You’re finished! Now you can velcro them onto the car seat straps and have better car rides! Thanks for reading!
I’m over at Arizona Mama today showing you how I made this souvenir baseball bat display. Thanks for checking it out!
I am finally back in the world of computers!! I haven’t blogged in over a month, but this post is an update from my last post. I was able to borrow some little elves the week before Christmas to help me with my projects and get all but one finished. (And it’s still not finished!)
Pockets for a Skirt (These should have been made from the same color of fabric as the skirt)
Cloth High Chair (We’re finding that these are Ok, but not really worth the trouble because there isn’t a tray and it’s not high enough to be pushed up to the table, instead I’m going to be yardsaling for a plastic high chair that straps onto a chair.)
Stuffed Animal Backpack (Tutorial on this later!)
Everything went well for my Christmas, we didn’t really overspend either! How were your holidays?
