A New Baby Seat

This is now my third time making this genius roll-up baby chair from Canadian Living magazine. You can see Judah's version, but apparently I never blogged about Isaac's version. The recipient of this latest seat hasn't been born yet, so it's for 'Baby Kirby' for now.

The only change I make to the pattern is to add 3" to the top because I found Judah's seat was just a bit too short for some chairs. With the added length I'm fairly certain this seat will fit on almost any dining room chair.

It doesn't look like much when it's not in use, does it? Since there are no babies in my house anymore, Nathan's big teddy bear agreed to stand in as a model 😊

It is one of the most brilliant things I've ever come across and it's simple to make, which is a real bonus. How many times do parents go somewhere with baby and there's nowhere for baby to sit at the table so you end up holding the baby the whole time? Now, with this seat stashed in the diaper bag, it's easy to give baby his own seat and make everyone happy!

Here's what it looks like from the back of the chair.

And here it is all opened up.

The plane fabric is just too cute, isn't it? It's from Camelot Fabrics and it's called "Take Flight." I just had to do a loopy-stipple quilting to go along with the smoke trails behind the planes.

The seat folds up really small and the bias tape ties can even keep it all tied together.

How I wish I had one of these when my boys were small! Next best thing, I'll just keep giving baby seats as shower gifts 😊 What is your go-to baby gift?


  1. I do love that airplane fabric! Adding a few inches to the design to work on more chairs is a lbit very modification. I tend to gift quick sheet quilts in a pinch. :)

  2. What a great make Leanne! We had a clip-on chair when our boys were small it was a real godsend when there were no highchairs available. It did mean that we needed an exclusion zone around the occupant though! We learned that the hard way when one son grabbed the plate with apple pie and cream that was placed too close to him and swiftly dropped it on the floor :)


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a message. I love hearing from you.
