Fully lined with faux fur fabric, this is a pushchair footmuff I made for my son who is nearly two. He’s very tall so he grew out the standard footmuff I had very quickly, and winters in the UK are chilly! I wasn’t driving at that time so did loads of walking, and needed a solution to keep him warm.
The footmuff has two zips around the edges, two pieces of string that attach to the pushchair frame, two elastic hoops at the bottom so that the futtmuff doesn’t get caught by the wheels and two flaps with velcro to secure it at the top.
I used an old Graco footmuff as a guide and had to adapt it for the MacLaren Quest pushchair. It had to be longer too! The tricky part was getting the edges done, as there were two layers of thick material and a zip – the sewing machine was choking, poor thing.
