Thanks to Catherine for this Frugal Baby Tip!

Sew up this hi-chair - that stores right in your diaper bag!

You'll need 1 metre (40") of 90 cm (36") wide of any fabric. Cut two tie-strips 19 cm (7.5") by 1 metre (40"). Hem or zigzag all edges of remaining piece.

At one short side, bring sides in to meet at centre front and sew along each edge of triangle formed.

Fold each tie-strip in half, right sides together. Sew 1 cm (1/2") seams along long edge and one short end. Turn right way out, tuck in and finish last short edge. Centre one tie-strip at each short end of larger piece and top-stitch or zig-zag in place.

To Use: Lay fabric seat over back of chair, spreading cloth down over the seat. Place your baby on top of fabric, bring front ties up between legs to baby's stomach and tie straps together at sides. You could also fasten ties loosely first, then slip baby in and tighten straps.

Take it everywhere you go!
