Hi there and welcome to my store. In this store that is a variety of baby and household items, but my cornerstone are my handmade fabric items. It is something I do in my spare time when I am not at work as a geologist or raising 2 young boys! : )
Some of the items I am proud to present are:
High chair replacement covers and pads
variety of manufactures & models

Newborn/Infant support inserts for highchairs, swings, carseats and more!
storage accessory for highchairs
Cute printed bibs

ECOPatchees Patchwork Silky Blankets
the security blanket with square patchwork on the front and a silky print or solid on the back.
Baby Snuggle Swaddle Wraps
flannal swaddling wraps with hood and feet. Great for layering and keeping newborn arms snug.
Pacifier storage and travel pocket.
Here are some of the wonderful comments I have received....
..."I got the cover today. It's a dream! Its more adorable than what I had imagined! I simply LOVE it!!!"
..."Thank you so much. I am so excited to have found you. Being able to pick a fabric is even better than buying what they have online for replacement covers at such a HIGH price. The added bumper is a great idea too for my baby that is still young but would like to sit up at the table with us."
..."The cover has arrived. It arrived earlier this week and is gorgeous. It cheered up the kitchen. I had to wash it once already (potty accident) and it came out perfectly. Much easier to clean than the Perego one."
"Custom high chair covers"
My original intent was to make a replacement for my personal Prima Pappa but then started thinking that I was not the only mom who needed a break. So with using my 15+ years of sewing experience I created my own cover and now offer not only for the Prima Pappa but for many others as well. As of March 2007, I have made over 200 covers. Here is what I have made so far:
Peg Perego Prima Pappa
Graco Easy Seat
Graco Neat Seat
Traditional wooden highchairs
Fisher Price Healthy Seat
Fisher Price Easy Seat
Don't see yours? You can send me measurements or the cover itself. I have done this on many occassions with much success.
*Washable Cotton and cotton blend fabrics. I discovered myself and through many other buyers, those vinyl and leatherette covers collect mold because they do not dry out quickly. Yuk! Ocassionally, upon request I make vinyl covers but they have cotton on the back to allow it to dry quickly.
*1/2" chair pad quality padding on the inside. So you could use this alone or to cover your existing padding.
*Elastic band to keep those trouble some side panels in place (something the manufacture didn't think of and drove me crazy!for Prima Pappa only)
*REVERSIBLE. Just take off and turn over to reapply. It's like 2 covers in 1!
*Can be with or without passive restraint bar cutout. See picture below for example
*For 3- or 5-point seats.
---Please note: My covers do not have the same thickness of padding nor the ability to snap to the chair like the original. I have added other features to compensate for this in mine.
I have also made covers for the Graco Open top swing...
Does your cover need a little protection from your messy eater? Here is a cover for your cover. Made from heavy weight vinyl, the mat covers the portions most likely to have contact with the dribbles and drools of your feeding infant and toddler. It just slips into the seat and has slits and openings to accomodate the belts. Comes out easily for a wipe down.
'Baby Bumpers & Head Huggers"
Bring baby to the table!! Give a new view and hang out in the kitchen!
Perfect for the tiny newborn who needs more support. Forget the rolled up towel and blankets! Helps stop the slouching and neck rolling. Gives a more plush feel for baby with the extra padding. Can be used in many different highchairs, swings, strollers and more!
*Washable Cotton and cotton blend fabrics
*1/2" chair pad quality padding on the back and app. 1.5" on the sides
*REVERSIBLE. Just take off and turn over to reapply. It's like 2 in 1!
*Slits can be added upon request to accomodate belt straps.
*The Head Hugger has extra padding on the sides to hold the head more upright.
This is not attached to the bumper so that it can be removed when not needed and grow in height to accomodate any sized baby..
The Baby Bumper and Head Hugger can be purchased separately in specially marked auctions or upon request.
Need a little storage? My Pocket Pals can be attached to the side of the high chair with simple ties or snaps. Or if you have a custom cover made, I can make one that attaches to the back of the cover with buttons. Sizes vary but are usually about 6" x 10".
*Washable Cotton and cotton blend fabrics
*Great for holding toys, pacifiers, bottles etc.
*Attach to side with ties or back of custom cover with buttons
*Removable for laundering or when the cover is being used in reverse position.
*Completely custom. Not always the same size so check dimensions in auction. Most pockets are about 9"w x 8"l
"PaciPal...pacifier storage pocket"
Losing pacifiers? Are they ending up at the bottom of a filthy diaper bag?
This may be the solution!
*Washable Cotton and cotton blend fabrics. Cold or warm water wash with color safe spot treatment. Line dry or low heat.
*Button hole or velcro closure
*Snap strap allows for the PaciPal to be attached to a bag, stroller, carseat, etc.
*Can fit 1 or 2 pacifiers depending on size of pacifier and the pocket itself
"ECOPatchees Security Blanket"
A little soft lovie for baby.
They are made from the remanant pieces of the covers I have made. Instead of sending them to fill our landfills, I "recycle" them to be used as squares and patches for my blankets. These blankets will be listed for only 30 days. Any remaining after 30 days are donated to an abused women and children's shelter. Your purchase helps my cause by helping to pay for the additional materials to make these items. I donate my time in an effort to have a positive influence...if only a little one. :)
*Washable Cotton, cotton blend, fleece or flannel fabrics on one side
*Silky print or solid on back
*Assorted ribbons of satin and grosgrain
*Measurments vary. LARGE: app. 16" x 16", REGULAR: app. 11" x 11" and MINI: 8" x 8" , see listing for induvidual sizes
*Great portable enjoyment!
*Stiched for safety! I stitch the ribbons on the blanket 2x, one on either side
Custom orders work as follows...
1. Contact me and let me know what you are looking for. Please include the following information:
Make/model of chair. If it is one not listed, or a GRACO or EVENFLO, send measurements for size according to the letters on the above diagram. I can email you the diagram and you can send measurements back to me. A picture is definately helpful!
What colors/patterns/etc you would like in your fabric. I have some fabric on hand, but will also look for requests. Price is based on the cost of fabric and range from $21-$30. If you know of a fabric that you want and purchased yourself, you can send and I will make. I charge a flat fee for labor and inner foam pad Agian, a picture of a kitchen item is definately helpful...a picture is worth 1000 words!
