Tutorial: This Mama’s Fab Travel Chair

This fabric “high chair” is perfect for away from home dining.

It’s no 5-point harness, but it helps secure them in the chair.

This one was made from an old thrifted, quilted ottoman cover

Gather materials: Quilted fabric for outer*, cotton broadcloth or similar for lining, Velcro.

*Batting combined with broadcloth can also be used.

For this one, I used a thrifted bedspread and bed sheet.Step 1 – Make pattern pieces.

All measurements include 3/8″ seam allowance.

Step 2 – Add markings 2 1/4″ apart at center of each piece as shown in picture.

These markings will help you place the connector piece.

Step 3 – Using a single layer of lining and a single layer of quilted fabric, cut each piece out together.

Curve the corners of velcro pieces so there are no sharp points.

Step 4 – With right sides together, sew connector pieces together along long edges. (3/8″ seam allowance)

Step 5 – With right sides together, sew seat pieces together, starting at connector mark and ending at next mark, leaving open 2 1/4″.

Step 6 – With right sides together, sew strap pieces together, starting at connector mark and ending at next mark, leaving open 2 1/4″.

Step 7 – Turn all pieces right side out and press.

Step 8 – Top stitch connector piece 1/4″ from edge along sewn edges.

Step 9 – Insert connector piece into opening in seat and into opening in strap. Pin into place.

Step 10 – 1/4″ Top stitch around entire edge of seat and strap, making sure to catch connector piece.

Step 11 – Hand stitch lip edge of strap and seat at connector for a more finished look. or use 1/8″ top stitch to secure lip.

Step 12 – Sew Velcro onto ends of waist strap, centering on strap & placing it 1 1/4″ away from short edge.

Scratchy side goes on outside of strap.

Soft side goes on inside of strap.

Sew all along the edge.

You’re done!

Weave through chair back.

Insert hungry kid!

In these days of 5-point harnesses, I must remind you this travel chair should always be used with parent supervision. It does not 100% secure child to chair.  Never leave child unattended.

Being informed is the best method of making a decision with
which you will be happy for a long time and purchasing patio furniture is no different.
For an outdoor furniture bar table or another piece of outdoor furniture that is not only affordable but
creatively designed as well, this is the perfect place to shop.
Other finish options are to paint or stain the wood.

For one thing, it is a time to share your views and feelings.
The foremost coverage that these plans offer is against the death and disablement of an insured due to an accident.
You need to first off own an Amazon Kindle DX or Amazon Kindle 2
e-reader,in order to start sharing Kindle books.

Jen in Hawaii September 5, 2014 at 12:08 am

Hi Carrie! I just made one of these today for my 11 month old baby girl! She loves it and apparently so do alot of moms here in Hawaii;) I have received so many private messages asking if I could make and sell these as they would be incredibly useful here! I told the moms that you (the blogger) had specifically requested that this tutorial was for personal use only(and gifts) but I have gotten so many excited inquiries about them that I wanted to ask again in hopes that you may change your mind? I would only ask for the cost of material and labor. You could even tell me what to price it as if you decide to give me “permission”. The moms who are asking do not know how to sew or use a sewing machine but are incredibly interested in this fabulous item and very much would like one for their little ones. I hope you will reconsider!! 😉

Would anyone be able to make one of these travel chairs for me? I don’t know how to sew. I just painted a very old high chair and it doesn’t have a seat belt. This looks perfect and it’s super cute. I could pay you $20 plus shipping. If you’re interested please email me at schmidtsusan5@gmail.com
