cushioned

little bb is getting more and more active and curious by day.

when sitted in his high chair, instead of sleeping and dozing off,
he is staying awake more, watching us moving around the house, waving his little hands at us,
and kicking kicking kicking.

he kicks very hard.
as he is growing bigger and bigger, his little feet are now touching the plastic edge of the high chair.
as he kicks, his little feet bangs at the edge and makes "bang bang bang" sound all the time.

the sound itself makes us think his little feet feet must be in pain....

although he doesn't seem to be bothered, i made a cushion so that his little feet will be banging against it instead of the plastic edge of the high chair.




















to match the color of his high chair, i used beige fabrics.
the front is made with a piece of polka dot fabrics which i got a long time ago but never used.
the bottom is a piece of flowery fabrics.
then i used a piece of lace with tiny pom pom balls around the cushion to make it less boring.
to top things off, i added a lace monogram with the initial "A" and a little ribbon bow.






















kick kick kick!


























to secure the cushion, there is a piece of ribbon (with matching polka dots pattern!) to tie it to the chair.
























little bb, you can now "kick-all-you-want" without mama (not you) feeling painful
