I have several people redo car seats and strollers. I have really wanted to do it, but just didn’t. Well I found the most perfect fabric at Walmart (I couldn’t believe it) and so I decided redo our little car seat. I encounter a couple of problems but overall I think that it turned out really well!!
So this is the before
And here is the after
So what I did was took the old car seat cover and just put fabric over it. I pinned it down and then sewed the new fabric onto it. The cover is padded, so I didn’t want to replace it.
This was actually one of the hardest parts to do…. I wanted something waterproof so I put vinyl over my fabric. I soon learned that the sewing machine doesn’t like vinyl and it sticks easily.
For the canopy, I took the old canopy, cut it up and used it for a pattern. The tricky parts were here for sure. I had to sew the green fabric on the bars and trying to figure that out with the machine was interesting.
I love the outcome though, it just looks so clean and new!!
My little boy was just as excited as me, he jumped right in 🙂
