Our family is looking forward to a couple of road trips this Summer and in order to keep everyone comfortable for those long hours in the car, I’ve sewn up a couple of seat belt covers with HeatnBond® Fusible Fleece for my kiddos. These were fast and easy to whip up and I thought I’d share with you how I did it!
Here’s what you’ll need:
2 rectangles cut at 6 1/2″ x 8″ (can be the same fabric, or different)
1. Following the instructions on the package, fuse the piece of HeatnBond® fusible fleece to the WRONG SIDE of one of the fabric rectangles. Line up the fleece so that about a 1/2″ gap is left on one end of the fabric.
If you are using two different prints, fuse the fleece to the fabric that will be on the outside of the seat belt cover (from here on out I’ll refer to the fabrics as “outside” and “inside”).
2. Layer the two fabric rectangles right sides together. Sew around three of the sides using a 1/4″ seam. DO NOT sew along the side that has the 1/2″ gap with no fleece.
As you can see in the photo below, you may or may not have stitched over some of the fused fleece on the sides and bottom. It’s fine either way!
3. Carefully clip the bottom two corners without cutting through the stitching.
4. Turn the cover right sides out now and carefully push out the corners to make a nice point:
