I just couldnt spend $13….

So after realizing that not only was my old “car seat pad/head support” thingie BLUE, it was also horribly stained.. ICK..

So I looked at Wally World and they are $13!!!! SO I thought, HEY I can make that, lol. So after the revelation, my mind just wouldnt quit until I did it!

Mine turned out a little smaller and I overstuffed, in my opinion, the “pillow” part. And I didnt think until about 1/2 way through that I should have sewed the “pillow” part on the pad and THEN stuffed it!! WOW what a genius idea, lmbo!!!

Old and New:

I will definately be making a few more of these as a spare is always nice and I am not sure this one will work long as it is a tad small.

Oh and if you didnt know already, sewing on bias tape on curves is hair pulling sometimes, lol.  And this makes Item #2 that is usable and needed for new baby girl for the “Sew for your Own” Challenge!!!!!

    Looks very nice. I bet it would work great as a spare for a swing or bouncy too. And, maybe since it’s a tad small, for those baby toy’s like strollers, etc…
    thanks for sharing

    Really great idea. Those would make perfect shower gifts.

    That looks great! You may already know this, but just in case you don’t… steam helps a lot with getting bias tape to go around curves. 🙂

    Um… I do think you did a great job, by the way, just thought I’d try and save you some hair-pulling next time. 🙂

    No worries Ula 😉

    I will have to try that although I dont know how well that will work because I dont have an exact idea of when I will be turning the corner so I can presteam.. Thinking I would have to stop steam then sew, then stop/steam/sew, no?

    Oh yes, that’s true, but when I do bibs, I actually steam the binding strip all the way around the bib first, and then I carefully pick up the whole business and slide it over to the sewing machine to sew it down. I’m not sure how well that would work on a larger piece like that headrest, though. You’d probably need to grow an extra hand or something!

    I love the headrest. Very handy and pretty fabric too!
