A fabric hi-chair is a huge advantage if your little one will be making weekend trips to grandma's.

If you are eating out friends' homes, or at restaurants who do not provide infant seating.

Or even if you just don't have space for a full-size high chair in your home.

You can also use it as a safety belt in a baby's full-size high chair, or in the shopping cart seat!

Sew up this simple fabric hi-chair - it folds up small and stores right in your diaper bag!


How to Make:

2. Cut two tie-strips 19 cm (7.5") by 1 metre (40").
Hem or zigzag all edges of remaining piece.
