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 that do not provide infant seating.
Or even if you just don't have the space for a full-size high chair in your home.
You can also use it as a safety belt in 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:
1. You will need 1 metre (40") of 90 cm (36") wide of any type of fabric.
(IDEA - I used a quilted fabric and bound the edges with bias tape.)
2. Cut two tie-strips 19 cm (7.5") by 1 metre (40").
Hem or zigzag all edges of remaining piece.
3. At one short side of your large rectangle, bring sides in to meet at center front and sew along each edge of angle formed.
4. 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.
5. Center one tie-strip at each short end of larger piece and top-stitch or zig-zag in place.

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 with you, everywhere you go!
