I didn't want to spend a lot of $$ buying TWO of those cart/high chair covers, so I did this instead!
I took TWO blankets the babies already had. They're 42" x 32." Any smaller than that probably wouldn't cover the front and back of a cart or a high chair. The blankets I used were double-sided flannel. I'm only showing Lamb's cover. Sorry, I forgot to take a pic of Cuddler's.
I measured my babies' thighs and added a couple of inches to the circumference (for growth). I cut ovals in their circumference about 2/3 of the length and centered. You could drape the blanket on your highchair at home and estimate and guess where the holes would be in a cart or a public high chair. Finally, I zig-zag stitched the edges to keep them from fraying. It was super easy, and it didn't cost me anything because I already had everything!
I hope this tutorial helps anybody who wants to save money from having to buy covers at the stores.
These could also be made more fun by attaching ribbons to hang their favorite toys to, so they won't be bored at the restaurant or when you're out shopping for HOURS. Ummm.. I don't do that.

I am a wife to an awesome husband and mommy to the sweetest 1 year old twins- Cuddler and Lamb. I taught for ten years before I stayed home with the babies. I have a Master in Education with emphasis on Creative Arts. I love creating. I obsess over redoing, organizing, decorating, cooking, scrapbooking, and designing.
I have a few projects I would like to tackle. Hopefully, they're in the near future rather than later.
Project #1 Okay, I haven't done the kitchen chairs yet. Right now, they're covered with "off-white" fabric. I would like to cover those six chairs with a brown or black faux leather fabric. I think that it'll be easier to clean.
Project #2 Another project I would like to tackle is replacing the commercial pictures in a long frame with pictures of my twins. It has three 8x10 slots, and I think that would be an easy project to do.
Project #3 I got really big and exhausted early in my twin pregnancy and I didn't get to fully decorate the nursery as I wanted to. Now that Lamb and Cuddler are over 15 months old, I'd like to give it the attention it deserves. I have less excuses, huh?
