Do you have a high chair with an old tattered cover?
Over maybe you’re just tired of it?
Yeah, me too. And I wanted to hurry and get this re-covered before moving.
…and cut around it to get my new piece. (You don’t have to add anything for a seam allowance since we will be using bias tape and won’t be taking anything off the dimension. I did, however, add about a 1/4 inch to allow for shrinking when you add the batting to the back.)
Then cut a strip of fabric that is the same shape as the top of the cover, but more narrow. This will serve as the flap to slide over the top of the actual highchair. (And if you’re wondering about that brown seam along my batting, I had to piece 2 pieces of it together from my scraps…don’t let that confuse you.)
And then sew bias tape around the entire cover, making sure to include all of the edges of the back flap and its ends. Also, sew very slowly around all of the curves….they can be tricky with the bias tape.
**And I forgot to take a picture, but I made seams along the folds of the cover. So wherever the cover would be fold while sitting in the high chair, I made a seam so that it would fit nicely in the seat. Just look at your old cover, and match the old seams.**
