I could not bear the suspense.
So I took a lot of things to the children's consignment store and got $40 off a used stroller for a grand total of 20 bucks. It feels a little wiggly and its basket is not as big as the old one, but I am now free from suspense.
I knew I was going to need some kind of stroller organizer for the new stroller because I did not want to throw my phone, wallet, and keys down in the basket. I decided to see if I could make something that would look nice and function well. I'm so pleased with this stroller organizer!
I used some scraps of Sunbrella fabric in my stash, so it's more like home dec weight with the added weatherproofing. Each end has a gusset to make a roomy box with fabric ties at each corner. I used some yellow scraps from this very misguided skirt as interior pockets. And I put two bands of wide striped elastic at either end to tether water bottles. There's also bottom space that I toss a book and a stroller hook into, as well as small purchases and doodads. The fabric ties are very secure on the stroller handle. I've been using it for over a week now, and I love it!
Love the organizer! How great that you had the Sunbrella scraps, it'll hold up well, I'm sure.
ALSO: How adorable is Phoebe?!? Love the sparkle in her eye!
Ooo - professional job - looks like it was original equipment for the stroller! My scraps never match anything :
Great job. And that Phoebe - does she even take a bad picture?
