So I know this technically isnt clothing, but I did sew it and it is for my 8 month old daughter.
The seat cover that was previously on her high chair was cheap and heat sealed at the edges, so it started to come apart pretty quickly (plus, it use to be my sons, so its been well loved)
I set out to look for materials that would be an easy clean up without me having to throw it in the washing machine.
I came across a kids shower curtain (on clearance...yes, SCORE!)  that is clear vinyl w/cute animal print. But I knew i needed a backing, so I took the foam cushioning out of the old seat cover and added in a layer of green w/wht star rib knit fabric that I already had laying around the house. And Voila!!!!
Aside from the fact that I knew I couldnt screw up on this project; because lets face it folks, vinyl is not forgiving, it turned out really well. The bottom is uneven, but its just gonna get covered in baby food anyway, so who cares. It fits the chair well and is super cute. I'm not into all the super girly colors, so i'm glad it turned out more gender nuetral.











Let me know what you think

Adorable!  What a cute idea!  I thought I might do that type of thing to our high chair, but the kids all outgrew it before I spruced it up...   Tongue
