Restaurant high chair cover tutorial - DIY

Last weekend we had a family reunion in Indianapolis.  My daughter, son in law and granddaughter were going with us and I knew we would be eating out. I decided to use four more of the Chevron fat quarters to make a cover for those restaurant high chairs.  I looked all over the web for a restaurant high chair cover tutorial but couldn't find anything that really showed me how to make one.  So I figured it out on my own!

The chairs vary a bit in size, but this cover is very versatile and should fit them all.  My local Meatheads hamburger restaurant let me measure and try it out on their high chairs, which were squeaky clean.  Not all restaurant high chairs are that clean!  Thanks, Meatheads!  It was easy to make once I figured out the dimensions.

You will need 2.5 yards total or 4 fat quarters plus 1.5 yards of fabric. You will need 2.5 yards of batting plus thread and pins.  Other than that, it's all here in this restaurant high chair cover tutorial - a DIY project!

Sew happy!
