Ava’s Car Seat Recovered

August 28, 2008

I nanny Ava, she is two years old and a blast.

The problem is every time her mom drops her off, she has to move the car seat from her car to mine.

I got the idea to check Craigslist.  I found a lightly used Cosco car seat.  It was in excellent condition.

I starilized the base and washed the cover and it looks good as new!   The only thing is that Ava is a little girl and this looks like a boy.  I wonder if I can make a cover for it?

I found some felt ( i got at a garage sale) and laid it on the car seat cover.  I pinned directly onto the seams and cut about 1/2″ around the pins.  Then i pinned the new felt pattern onto my fabric.

I placed the cut out pieces onto the chair and pinned them together.

I sewed them together and here is how it turned out!

Tada!  My new and improved Gingham Car Seat for my Ava.
