Here in Australia we have pretty strict laws about kids and car seats to keep them safe. This is fine with me as I’ve heard plenty of gruesome stories about what can happen to kids in car accidents. My Little Miss (9) has finally moved out of a booster seat now that Mr Happy (almost 7) is getting too big for the seat he was in. So now she is travelling with only the seat belt that goes over her shoulder. She is excited to be growing up, but she complains that the seat belt rubs on her neck. So I decided to try to make it more comfortable with a padded seat belt cover.
I love it when a project turns out just as I imagined and this one was easy! The cover is a couple of rectangles of fabric with a layer of iron-on pellon between them. I added a little quilting and some velcro to hold it in place.
The hardest bit of this project? Getting some photos of it in the car!
Little Miss is so cute though: “You could sell these in your Shop, Mum”, she tells me.
Hmmm… good idea! Would you buy one? Should I add some to the Shop?
