Chair sling

Okay, I sewed this tonight after Missy Moo was asleep so I wasn't able to model with a real live wiggling toddler. The bear below is not my daughter. She's not that furry.

Thank you to Jan Andrea for the FREE pattern and instructions. You can find them here. I varied mine slightly by using a double thickness of fabric which negates the need for bias binding along the edges of the seat.

This cost me about $3 to make. All materials were 'freed' from the opshop/thrift store. Sewing machine is Mum's old one (30+ years old), cotton, bias binding, sheet and table cloth all reclaimed! And to think I could have gone to 'insert Chain Baby Store here' and bought one for $30.
