The high chair cover

Today I felt the urge to make something other then hair bows! I looked over my list (below) and picked the one I wanted most, of course it also seemed to be the hardest! The high chair cover. I read the tutorial found here very carefully. I felt I knew pretty much how to do everything it described except I had no idea what bias tape was or what to do with it exactly. Luckily a lady at Joanns knew just what it was and she gave me all kinds of good info on the stuff! Anyway, you all know I am a beginner sewer so if anyone else wants to make this go for it! If I can do it you can too!

Do you see why I wanted a new one?

I simplified the tutorial a little by just using one piece of fabric for the front, I was too scared to cut up my original cover in case things didn't work out and doing it this way I didn't have to cut it! I love this fabric! I have a girl but those colors match the room we keep our high chair in so it works.


  1. Meka, this looks SO good! I have been wanting to try this tutorial too, but sadly I don't own a sewing machine. I am glad to see it worked!!

  2. I have that exact same high chair! This will be so great to make!
