This Tuesday Tutorial explains how to make a new seat for a doll stroller. This should fit most simple doll strollers. We got our stroller from Good Will for $.99 but the seat needed replacing. The main problem was that the bottom part kept falling off of the pegs. It was easy for me to put it back on but was causing Penelope serious frustration. I will admit that this project was pretty hard for me as a beginner. It was my first time using a pattern without help. So for most of you this will be pretty dang easy, but for me it did cause a little stress. Mostly I had a hard time putting the binding tape on correctly. So even though I was frustrated I did finish it during one of the kids 3 hour naps and if you have sewed anything before I'm sure it will be no trouble at all for you. The best thing about this was that I made the whole thing out of materials I already had!
Pattern found here
Half yard fabric
Two 21/2" pieces of elastic
Two 10" pieces of ribbon (optional)
3) Now fold the bottom up a quarter inch, sew it.
This is where I thought I was done. Unfortunately the stroller seat kept coming off of the stroller so I added ribbons to keep it in place.
11) Fold one ribbon in half and pin the fold into the back bottom corner of the seat. Repeat on the other corner. Then burn the ends of the ribbon so it doesn't fray.
12) The last step is to add the binding tape to the bottom. I skipped this and it seems to be fine without it.
Enjoy! And thank you to sewinginomandsland for teaching me how to do it.
