I've had this on my to do list for a long time now and I finally made it so I can use it on vacation in New York when I visit my family. I think it came out so cute!
It was very simple to make.
2 pieces of contrasting fabric 6" x 37"
2 pieces of contrasting fabric 6" x 4"
2 pieces of contrasting fabric 20" x 10"
3 pieces of batting for each combination
Velcro (long piece)
I didn't take many pictures during the process of making this, but I did wing it so I'm sure you can too!
Sew the three sections (right sides together) but be mindful where you leave your opening to turn right sides out because the smallest section will connect the two larger pieces. By looking at the layout you can figure out where to leave the openings.
After sewing it together I did a stitch around the outer edge to help it lay flat and hold the batting better.
The last step is putting the Velcro on. I used a long strip so it can be adjusted as Junior grows.
If you have questions just email me or comment and I will do my best to explain how I did it.
If you notice it is reversible!
Here is the view from the back. Little I didn't seem to mind being restrained, although I'm sure the fish helped distract him. This is great if you're out at a restaurant or a friend's house with no highchair. Enjoy!
