I was so inspired by this Car Seat Re-Cover!
Laura from Laura Thoughts shows a great tutorial on just how to do this!
I was afraid to actually do this to my younger daughter's car seat, even though Laura's tutorial seemed simple enough. SO, I thought to help "boost" my confidence, I would re-cover my older daughter's "booster" seat (less to cover).
I'm happy to say, it was quick and easy to do, PLUS my oldest daughter and I LOVE it! (She picked the fabric)
Here's a quick "How-To"
Take seat cover off
Flip and place on wrong side of fabric
cut around leaving a 1 in. hang over.
Fold edge of fabric under and sew to edge of seat cover
Do the same to other side. Sew two lines in the middle to give the puff affect
Zig-zag bottom edge of seat cover (side with no straps)
Fold under and sew top (with the straps) of seat cover
Do the arm rest padding next by taking apart the original padding
Place pieces on fabric and cut (no hang over necessary)
Sew back together
Then your done:
(every seat is different it seems, just use what you have as a template and you'll be good. Also, make sure you pay attention on how you took it apart SO you can put it back together again) :)
Here it is one more time
Thanks for stopping by!
