Tutorial: Padded seat belt cover – Sewing

Here in Australia we have pretty strict laws about kids and car seats to keep them safe. This is fine with me as I’ve heard plenty of gruesome stories about what can happen to kids in car accidents. My Little Miss (9) has finally moved out of a booster seat now that Mr Happy (almost 7) is getting too big for the seat he was in. So now she is travelling with only the seat belt that goes over her shoulder. She is excited to be growing up, but she complains that the seat belt rubs on her neck. So I decided to try to make it more comfortable with a padded seat belt cover.

The ride home from the hospital can be an uncomfortable one for a mastectomy patient. Unfortunately, the seat belt strap lays directly across the chest which can irritate and cause pain to the incision site. An easy way to prevent any discomfort and pain is with a padded seat belt cover. It may be difficult to find one in your local stores, but today I’m showing you how to make one yourself with a few materials and sewing machine. This would make a great gift for someone with an upcoming mastectomy surgery (or any chest area surgery) and is very affordable to make.
