So that the seat belt doesn’t rub your neck raw. Especially nice for little kiddos. (But you could really make these any size.) We pulled out our bike trailer several weeks ago and plopped the two kiddos in but realized after a short ride, that the seat belt rubbed our little guy’s neck……and he hated it. Poor thing. (And another friend that lives nearby had the same problem and asked if I had an idea of how to make these little covers. Thanks for getting me thinking, Allison!)
So, keep in mind that you can use these for any sort of seat belt. Bike trailers, strollers, car seats, etc.
**Warning: Be careful while using in car seats. These covers should not prohibit the function of the car seat in any way. Make sure that the covers aren’t too long, pushing the chest clip down too far on your child. (Shorten the length dimensions of the covers if you need to.) The chest clip on car seats serves a great purpose for the safety of your child and needs to remain over your child’s chest.
- 4 squares of cotton (I cut mine 5.5 x 5.5 inches)
- 4 squares of thin quilt batting (again, 5.5 x 5.5 inches)
- Package of Double Fold Extra Wide Bias Tape
- Sewing machine, scissors, thread, etc.
Now do the same thing to the other set of fabric/batting.
