We're due with our first baby Jan 10th. I found this cute stroller at a thrift store I frequent, but it was dark blue with yucky checkered print. I had this cute pink fabric in my stash and spent the day re-vamping a stroller for her. The part where she'll sit is removable. I spray painted the dark blue frame black.  The canopy is still dark blue, but I can live with it. I glued strips of the fabric on the canopy top where it had the checkered fabric.

This is FUN!  Love the colors you chose for the stroller.  Congrats on the baby!  I have no idea if you have any other kids but you are in for quite the ride...but its one I would NEVER get off if given the chance.   Grin

I love it. I'll have to remember this if/when I have babies.

Great idea. Wink I so wish Craftster would have been around when I was still having babies. So many people have such wonderful things to share.

That's amazing!  It looks fabulous...you know that people are going to be asking you where you found your stroller because they'll be stuck with the standard, boring factory fabrics.

I never would have thought of recovering the part of the stroller I didn't like. Nice job.

wow! great job!!!
I was researching myself how to make a seat liner for a stroller.  I got a used stroller a few days ago but the fabric has some stains and I can't seem to take it off (even though I see some snap buttons around the sides)... 
Did you use any padding inside the seat? What kind of padding did you use?  I need some ideas...
Thank you.
