Citymade is pretty proud of this next Â project. Recovering a car seat was a big undertaking but it was fun to see it take shape.
This is what the original car seat looked like, before it had been through four babies.
It was pretty worn out and had some tears in the sun shade but I couldn’t justify buying a new car seat knowing that we could just recover this one.
By taking apart the old car seat cover we created pattern pieces for the new one.
Many hours and quite a few pin pokes later we had our finished product
Our secret: we just took it piece by piece and and took a lot of deep breaths (great labor preparation for me).
