I don't know about you, but my kids have the ability to destroy the back of my front car seats.  I tried out those store bought organizers and protectors, but none fit right....so I set out to make some custom ones.


I simply measured the back of my seats and followed the shape.  Used elastic to hold them in place at the bottom and created a tab with buttonholes to hold it in place at the top (the headrests feed through the buttonholes). 

Added a few pockets for my kids' stuff and my seats are now completely protected from little feet!

This really was an easy project and would highly recommend it for those of you who have little children and can't stand the foot dirt on the back of your seats!

I love these!  And surprisingly would not have thought to make them myself.  It might just be time for Sally (my car) to get some new seat back pockets!

Thanks so much for sharing!

What a great idea!  I love the idea of the headrests feeding through the buttonholes, too!
