Stroller recover tutorial

Like i promised,i'll show you how to recover your old and ugly umbrella stroller.
It was sooo easy,so i am not sure if i took photos of every step.
You can see in THIS post how i took off stroller fabric.

Here is the seating part.
I removed buckle strap.
Then i started ripping seams(i removed sides and stroller bar cover fabric)
This is how i made patterns.I traced every part,adding 1cm or 1,5cm seam allowance.

Then,sewing.I put this old seating part into new "cover" so it's nice and soft.

If you do the same,leave one side open,and when you put seat pad inside,pin opening and top stitch.
I removed canopy later,and i'll try to recover it these days.I'll put a bow on the top so stroller will definitely look like Minnie Mouse.
Ok,then i made sides,little "pocket" that hold stroller liner in place and put buckle strap back on the stroller.

This project took me about 2 hours.
It was easy and i hope i helped you a little bit to recover your umbrella stroller.
