Hello Bernina lovers!
Who doesn’t like these Tripp Trapp chairs? They are so useful, either for kids or for adults, I love them, as well as their style.
Mine have a little cushion that makes them more comfortable, but they are getting old and used so I decided it was time to make new ones. And as usual, I thought of all of you who like sewing and may want to make one of those Stokke chair’s cushion; so here I am sharing this free sewing pattern and tutorial to make a Stokke Tripp Trapp chair cushion.
What you need…
Here are the materials needed to make a Stokke Tripp Trapp chair cushion:
– Half meter of fabric (you can use 2 different fabrics if you want your cushion to be reversible, like the one I am showing you in this sewing tutorial). I used thick fabric for this cushion, as it will be more durable.
– 50 X 30 cm of Batting (the thicker the batting, the more comfortable it will be).
– This free sewing pattern, that you can find here and retrace either on paper or directly on the fabric.
Trace the pattern following the measurements.
Please note that you’ll have to add a 1cm seam allowance to the fabric before cutting the pieces.
Let’s get started…
You have to cut 2 times the biggest piece (in black), and 1 time each smaller piece (in red).
Once you have cut the pieces as stated on the pattern, you should have the following pieces: 2 main ones cut in fabric (you can use 2 different fabrics to make a reversible Stokke Tripp Trapp chair’s cushion), the same piece cut in batting to make it comfortable, and the top and bottom back pieces to attach the cushion to the Stokke Tripp Trapp chair.
Start by sewing the hem on the straps pieces.
Fold 0,5cm in twice and top-stitch from the right side, just on the bottom side of both pieces. This is how they should look like from the wrong side once the hem sewn.
Stitch all the layers at 1 cm from the edge, leaving a gap on one side (the gap should be smaller than the space left in between the 2 straps.
Now, turn the right sides out through that hole you left in the previous step.
If you want to go the extra mile for a baby seat, make a (4,5 cm) button hole where the baby secure strap goes, in the center of the cushion, right on the edge of where to bottom part sits.
Open the button hole with the seam ripper.
Your handmade Stokke Tripp Trapp cushion is done!!
Here is how it looks from both sides.
And as mentioned before, the cushion is reversible, so you can play with different fabrics to get different looks.
