i was wondering if anyone has ever tried to recover their carseat and stroller. dont have the money to spend on a new one, but dont like the appearance of the one i have. i guess i would get the material and sew over whats already there??? any tips from someone who has done this before??? thanks!

I've seen car seat covers on ebay. They have some really cute patterns, not sure about the stroller though, and I wouldn't have a clue where to start if you wanted to sew one yourself, sorry, I'm no good at that sort of thing.:(

They only thing with making or buying a new cover (unlsee it is by the people who make the seat)is that any thing that happens to your baby in a crash an ins might not cover because it is not the cover that came with the seat. Check with the people who make your car seat some make covers that you can buy.

You could sell yours on ebay or craigslist and get a new one for cheap. I just got Brayden's car seat, stroller, and 2 car bases on craigslist...all for $75! it's super cute and looks like it's never been used.

I've re-covered 3 strollers, it's not that hard. If you can sew you can do it. I carefully unpick the original stroller and use it as a pattern.
Make sure you remember how to put it back together I always use the original binding and I try to use as much original batting as possible. To protect them from rain and stains I Scotch Guard them when finished.
It makes such a huge difference to the look of the stroller, Especially if it's old.
If you can sew then do it, you won't be sorry.
