My friend Teddi called me up and asked if I was interested in working on a project for her, and was I ever. This little baby stroller is adorable. Not a little umbrella stroller like we're used to seeing, this stroller was very similar in design to the full size navy stroller I covered here.
It started out like this and it was in pretty rough shape. The fabric was torn in a bunch of places and it was really dirty and just plain boring.
I took the old cover apart and used those pieces as my pattern. I then cut pieces out of my new fabric and put them back together. The solid pink is broadcloth that I doubled up and I finished all the edges with narrow pink bias tape, it's secured to the frame with heavy duty snaps. The original had a seat belt for dolls but it closed with D-rings. I can't really imagine a child being able to use D-rings so I replaced them with the kind of clip you'd use on a high chair. I know all my nieces love clipping and un-clipping those so I think it's a nice improvements. I think this stroller is adorable so I'm going to show you a bunch of after photos.
I put a doll in this one so you can see the size and how the belt clips.
Love how the handle changes position.
Now all I need to do is find another one of these for Catie because she loves it. She won't stop pushing it around and she keeps putting random things in it.
