I got a new sewing machine and this time its actually new new! Its a 30th birthday and congrats on the phd viva present all in one frpm my parents. Its the Singer 160 years anniversary model and I love it :-0 so much.
One of my first projects was this cushion set for Bess’ Trip Trap high chair (probably wont mean much to you non-danes but I think you can use the instructions for any other high chair as well.

First step is to measure out and maybe make a pattern of the areas you want to cushion.

I wanted to cushion the back ( a simple rectangular tube), the seat ( made a pattern for this) and the front brace ( two simple rectangular tubes).

I began by cutting out some pieces to fill with padding – here you can use any material left overs you wany. For the brace I used one layer of padding material, for the back I used two layers and for the seat three layers. The amount of layers depends on how thick your padding is to begin with 🙂

Next step is to fill the fabric pouches with padding to made small pillows for the front brache.

Here is a picture of the pillows for the back and the seat.

Next you sew pillow cases for the pillows. You can use the same patterns you made for the pillows.
