Foam Baby Seat Cover Free Pattern and Tutorial

EDITED 7/7/12  As I have previously mentioned, there is some errata in this pattern, which I have not had the time to fix, nor do I know when I will.  If you have specific questions, please email me at mousehousecreations (at) yahoo (dot) com.  

The pattern and direction links are below!

 PLEASE do not sell this finished cover… use it for your own purpose due to the hazard liabilities you could face.  Please do NOT place the “Foam Baby Seat” on a high surface or leave your baby unattended in the “Foam Baby Seat”, even with the awesome cover you have just made.  Tell ALL caregivers the same information…. do NOT put the “Foam Baby Seat” near fireplaces, on refrigerators, in cars, on buildings, and most importantly, in bathtubs.  Do NOT do anything stupid with the “FOAM BABY SEAT”.  The “Foam Baby Seat” is a fun device… not meant for a bathing baby, sleeping baby, driving baby, or a hiking baby.  NONE of those activities are safe for a baby in a “Foam Baby Seat”.  Even with the awesome cover you have just created.  

I am in NO WAY AFFILIATED WITH BUMBO OR KEEN DISTRIBUTERS, NOR has this cover been approved by Bumbo or Keen Distributers.

    Thank you for sharing this! I’ve been keeping my eye out for it for a couple of weeks now- how awesome that you’ve decided to share it with moms all over for free! Thanks again!

  • Pika

    This is awesome!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SHARING!!! I wanted the lime Bumbo for my son and ended up with the seafoam colored one. Call me picky. :o) Now I can make a cover with the awesome Dr Seuss fabric I have! :happydance:

  • Emily

    Thank you so much for developing this pattern and offering it for free. I made mine last week and am thrilled with how it turned out! Your instructions made it very simple and quick to make. Thanks again! Here’s a link if you want to see the finished product.

  • The Mouse House

    Thanks for commenting everyone!

    Emily, I just checked out your link and your daughter is so adorable and you did a great job on the cover. Thanks for sharing!

  • Nancy

    I have to commend your hard work…I couldn’t wait so I drafted a pattern myself and it was NOT EASY :)
    it is very generous of you to give it away…there will be alot more beautiful bumbos around from now on!

  • Dealish

    Thank you for this free pattern and tutorial. My husband was concerned about a bare bumbo for a couple of reason and I am glad we don’t have to spend the money on one! :)

    Thank you for sharing you pattern to us free of charge! I made one tonight and I had some issues with the last few instructions. I couldn’t figure out how to attach the seat piece to the arm pieces and then eventually to the “hood” piece. The instructions weren’t very clear to me and I kind of just winged it. The finished product turned out okay, but I like a more fitted look. Is there any tips you can give me? I don’t have a google account, but feel free to email me: cuppycakecouture at yahoo dot com

    Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you!

  • Lemme

    that’s so ridiculous! There are still lots of people on etsy selling these covers that haven’t gotten shut down. Hopefully you can get it back up some day. Maybe you can just say it’s a baby seat cover and not use the company name. in the mean time I saw a few people request to have it emailed to them. If you do that will you please email me too… at thanks!

  • nskaling

    I would love the pattern too :)

  • JDLE1203

    I came too late :(
    I’m trying to do everything myself and I was so happy someone shared a tutorial on the seat cover until I opened the site :( I’m sooo bummed.
    I see that everyone is asking for the pattern via email, can I also get one :)

    I would really appreciate it :)

  • Carri

    wow! Bummer! wonder if you could just call it a “baby seat cover” and hint as to the brand but never mention it for “legal purposes”. If you do get this back up and running, I would LOVE to be emailed the pattern! Good luck!

  • Aaron & Cassie

    I’d love one too, if someone could email it to me. Would be a lifesaver! thanks!

    How do the base pieces connect together. When I printed it out all three pieces were different sizes. They didn’t line up right to tape them together

  • Anonymous

    Thank you so much for this. My friend had triplets and we got some second hand foam chairs for them. I wanted to do something special and individual for them, these covers will be WONDERFUL! Thank you so very much!

  • Nikki Olmstead

    Thanks so much for this pattern!!
    I am trying to make this and I don’t understand what it means to tape together at the lines. Are you talking about the dashes on the edges of some of the pieces? And if so which pieces go together? I know it says you were updating it so I thought it might be nice to have a picture of which pattern pieces go together?

  • The Mouse House

    I haven’t had time to update the pattern yet, so I apologize about that!!! When you print them out, just line them up the best you can…. hopefully I will have the new pattern up soon!

    Thank you so much!! I’ve been waiting for this pattern!

  • Erica Marie

    The link to the instructions keeps redirecting to a google site. Is there a way to fix this? I’m so excited to get started on this but I don’t have to courage to venture it without instructions.

    In the meantime, can someone tell me how the cover gets put on the seat. Is it just slipped on or it there velcro to secure it?

  • The Mouse House

    I am not sure why it was doing that! Try it again, I think I have it fixed, but email me at mousehousecreations (at) yahoo (dot) com if it still doesn’t work and I will email it to you


  • The Mouse House

    And there is elastic at the bottom to secure it

  • Tina

    I followed everything to a T and for some reason mine does not fit. Also I noticed on the base part I have to remessure cause it wasn’t long enough to go around it. What am I doing wrong?

  • The Mouse House

    Tina, if you could email me at mousehousecreations (at) yahoo (dot) com I could walk you through it!


  • MomTo3Girls

    I’m also being redirected to the google website when I click on your link. I would love to get the pattern to make one for my daughter. Not so much so it looks cute or because i have a blue bumbo, (I’m also a girl who will use a blue bumbo for a girl) but because my 4 month old drools everywhere! It would be awesome to have one to throw on and off, and to wash easily. Could someone PLEASE send it to me?
