If you follow my blog you may have seen this
old toy stroller that had cracked vinyl.
My ideas for this tattered old toy were:
Create a pattern & then
sew a new liner
Repurpose it into
Well, I made the executive decision to give this
stroller a new life. The first step was use a
bolt cutter to snip off the accordion shade
that would have sheltered the doll's head.
Next I replaced some missing rivets
with bolts to hold the folding stroller up.
Then I fabricated a "table top" from
salvaged chippy blue bead board.
I placed the boards underneath snug enough
against the aluminum frame, so it wouldn't
slide around. Those brace boards sit recessed
down into the buggy frame.
It looked a little rough & unfinished to me.
So here is the next step...
I dug out a feed sack
from my stash of vintage
linens & fabric.
Then I trimmed a strip off,
the long way for an adorable "skirt".
The lace trim really made it dainty.
Silver thumb tacks worked perfectly
for securing it to the narrow wood edges.
This little side table would make a precious
accent in a child's nursery.
I did leave this table as a rolling mobile unit,
complete with nostalgic squeaking wheels!
