The seat was covered in a micro-fiber like material so I thought it would work out great. But we noticed it was staining easily and my mom warned me that it would looked well used very quickly.
Enter my husbands idea to make some sort of cover for it. Of course it was one of those "WE should make a cover for it" statements that meant "I should make a cover for it." We'll just assume it was a manifestation of his confidence in my ability.
So I grabbed some PUL fabric on sale, and this is what I came up with. The design is a combination of my hubby's idea and my own. It ties on all four legs, but also has flaps that are long enough to wrap around part of the bottom to be joined with a small bungee cord. It's been in use for a few days now and it seems to be working out okay.
It stays in place, cleans up easily, and our little one seems to be happy with it. Better yet, it was one of those one day projects. Love those.
