Infant Seat Redo

Two years ago Maria was getting ready for baby number six to arrive.  She was having tons of fun making a matching diaper bag, moby wrap, and nursing cover.  I commented to her that she was making so much that there wasn't going to be anything I could give her for her baby shower.  Jokingly she suggested that I re-cover her infant seat.  Not long before that I had seen a tutorial from Ashley at Make it and Love it on re-covering an infant seat.  I told her that I would do it!  To say that I was nervous though would have been an understatement.  What if I totally messed the whole thing up!?

First I took everything apart, taking LOTS of pictures along the way.  I didn't want to forget where each piece went since I didn't have another seat to reference if I forgot how it went back together.
In Ashley's tutorial she took the original fabric off of the padding.  I decided to keep the original fabric and just put new fabric right over top of it.

I was actually quite surprised at how quickly the whole thing came together.  It really wasn't nearly as hard as I had envisioned it to be.

I also made a head support piece that can be removed.
 And just for fun - a side by side comparison :

  1. I love how you put the new fabric on top of the old fabric.

  2. This is so cute! Love the fabric choices!
