High Chair Makeover

Since we moved into a bigger house, we now have room for a bigger high chair. We've loved our little clip on, but this one is nice to have in the kitchen area while I'm cooking. I found a high chair on Craigslist for $10 (total steal!), but it didn't have a cover. So I just busted one out.

I'm pretty proud of this baby. I just looked at some pictures online (I found an amazing tutorial here),  measured the dimensions, then I just guessed and did the best I can. It would have been easier if I could have used the old one as a template, but I just did a mock up with some scrap fabric and tweaked it from there.

 I kind of love this fabric. Amy Butler's Daisy Chain and charcoal houndstooth. How can I go wrong? I think it could go either boy or girl. It's totally washable too.

I feel so good about this one! I'm so thankful that my mom taught me how to sew. I found some places on etsy selling high chair covers for $50+. No thanks.


  1. goodness gracious. would you teach me how to do this. I want to do the same thing... get a high chair. we have a clip on still and I'm wanting an actual high chair - to find one on ksl would be awsesome! BUT I need to NOT be so intimidated by sewing and try this! Thanks for your inspiration. Love the fabric choices!

  2. and...the best part is there are no cracks for the food to get stuck in. my high chair is made up of 90% cracks.

  3. Excellent job - and I love the vintage feel of this!

  4. You are sooooo good! And your house looks awesome! :)
