Reversible Seat Belt Sleeve {Tutorial}

Today, I’m sharing my tutorial on how to make a Reversible Seat Belt Sleeve.

This project had been on my mind for about 2 weeks. Amelia has a new car seat and now uses the regular seat belt, rather than the harness (with padded sleeve) like on her previous seat. So last night I sat down and made her a new seat belt sleeve – and it’s reversible.


Seat Belt Sleeve


This Reversible Seat Belt Sleeve only took about 30 minutes to make – and that included trudging out to the car (in the rain) to measure the seat belt width. It really was that quick and super easy.

Seeing as a picture is worth a thousand words, here is how I made it.





The 2 fabric squares are 5” charm squares (Domestic Bliss fabric range)
The batting is also 5” square.

The pink & white dot fabric is for the binding. It is cut 1.5” wide and I used the single fold binding method to attach it to the sleeve.

Attach velcro tabs - to close the sleeve around the seat belt. Get the sew on type velcro if you can (saves a sticky machine needle).

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. As always, if you make this Reversible Seat Belt Sleeve, I’d love to see your photos. Please post images in the Samelia's Mum Flickr Group.
