One of the downfalls a lot of times of being the last child is EVERYTHING is a hand-me-down and looks pretty worn out. In hopes to change this centuries old plague for my last child, I have decided it won’t be “Worn out, get over it hand-me-downs” it will be “Restyled Hand-me-downs” or “Don’t you wish you wish you had style like this hand-me-downs.”
Taking on a whole new look….
Bouncy Seats are an essential tool for all babies and a place where 75% of pictures are taken the first 3 months! All of my daughter’s and son’s pictures are in this blue monster…it never dawned on me to at least put a blanket on it to cover it!! Duh!!
I actually got this used when I had my first child and since then it has gone through 3 (my 2 plus my niece) other kids. Now with the 4th about to use it, it could use some serious TLC.
How I did it:
The trickiest part was the seatbelt/harness. I made a pattern of the harness and left an opening at each end of the T and put a 1/4” hem to allow a finished edge on the buckle side and the bottom where it attaches to the base.
I then fed the buckle through and fished out the buckles. It was snug enough that I did not sew it on. To keep all the safety measure is place I made a button hole large enough through the slipcover and fed the the covered harness through.
Since it is a slipcover it can be removed and washed!!
I did this with $0 costs. My grandmother sent me up 5yds of this gorgeous material!!! She knows my style.
I have 16 days to go until Baby Girl’s Due date!!! Time flies when you are busy!
