hi all, I want to make a cushion for the base and back of my little girl's Tripp trapp high chair. I've found a blog with instructions to make the base but I have no idea how to start the back. Does anyone have any ideas please? Also, my chair is the one with the rounder old-style back, not the square one. Thank you for your help everyone!

What you need to make is a cushion that includes the seat and the back (you can just seperate with a few rows of stitching to make it fold) and then you need some sort of flap at the top that will slot over the top of the chair and therefore hold the cushion in place.

Search for high chair cushion tutorials and you should get an idea of the sort of thing you need to make.

another similar one. Hopefully you can just adapt the design to fit the tripp trapp

Acftually, just remembered what a tripp trapp looks like. Those aren't going to work are they as there'a gap between the bottom and the back of the chair. YOu might have to make a pad that wraps around the wooden bit to hold it in place along the curve?

I just found this. Would that help you? Could you copy that?

Thank you for your help. The tutorials are good because they tell you what might go wrong! The last picture is the newer style square backed babyset. I will just have to wing it myself with the back I think. I'm a bit more confident about it now though. Thanks.
