patchwork obsession part two


before-plastic and foam cover

after-quilted patchwork cover
I don't know why I am going to admit this, but the old cover was taped together. Yes, taped. It was a joy to be able to throw the old cover away. After I used it for a pattern, of course.

That is the cutest! I'm finding so many neat things to do for our baby on the way! I love this idea of yours! You are clever!

Perfect! I've been wanting to make a new cover for out high chair for ages! I love your patchwork :-)

andrea said...

This is so great. I would never have thought of personalizing a high chair like that...so clever!

Mama Urchin said...

So much nicer and probably more comfy too.

Roxanne said...

So cute!! And now you can just throw it in the wash! Very clever! I love the idea of kid stuff matching the rest of my house...as much as possible anyway. Another great idea!!

You've gotta love excuses to put a homemade cover on something!

Amy Jo said...

Looks great - and I love that you can throw it in the wash. Wish I would of thought of that years ago!!

Oh, yeah, this is fabulous! I must admit that, not being a mother myself, I often cringe when I see other people's baby furniture, since it is usually so functional but not so attractive. You have turned this hugh chair into a piece of art! That quilted pad is just perfect. I love this mini-series you've got going on.

Great idea! Little A will be quite the stylin' young lady in this highchair! It looks very nice!

What a super idea! I bet this would be a huge seller if you decided to make these and sell them :)

Sarah and Jack said...

Awesome! I used to make covers for our highchair out of vinyl tablecloths.

Ann-Margret said...

Oh my goodness, that's beautiful! What a difference it makes. The high chair suddenly looks so classy and, I dunno... POSH! Nice job! :)

Our highchair is in tatters too but I could never do anything like that... far too nice for baby food. C'mon admitt it, you only put that on when you have guests, right? please?
