One of you readers emailed me, asking if I could show how to make one of these. I’m so sorry, but I can’t remember who it was. I’ve looked for the email but I’m afraid it’s gone. So mystery emailer, this is for you.
Do you carry your car seat up in the bend of your elbow? Or on your forearm? Does the handle pinch and twist your skin and drive you crazy? Well, it always did for me. This is a great solution for that. Or even to eliminate sweaty hand…..slipping off the handle.
Nice and cushy.
Then I sewed the 2 pieces of cotton together (1/2 inch seam allowance), right sides together…..and left open a 3-4 inch gap on one side. Then I clipped the corners and turned it right side out, poking out the corners.
……and then I shoved the batting inside the main piece. You ‘ll have to work at it to get the corners of the batting right in the corners of the inside of the fabric. Keep shifting it all around to get it to lay completely flat. (If the batting is too big, it won’t lay flat…..so you may have to trim it.) **I decided to do it this way, rather than sew the batting together with the 2 pieces of fabric because I didn’t want it to be too bulky when I turned it right side out and tried sewing around the whole thing.**
