    This is a great gift idea! To make it easier to get the foam into the cloth bag slide the foam inside a plastic bag then into the fabric. pull the bag out, easy peasy.

    This is genius! Seriously, I wish I had one of these. I have been lugging around my 8 month old baby girl, hurting my arm all the time! She's about to outgrow her seat as she's so long, so it's too late for me, but I definitely want to make one of these for other new moms! Brilliant!

    This was so easy to make. The instructions are really clear and it was fun to make.
    I gave it to my daughter for her daughter that will be born soon. She loved it.
    Thanks for posting it! Joan

    I am making this for my new grandson and before I finish I wanted to make sure I am doing it right. I am confused why you said to get 14inches of Velcro when if I understand it correctly you are only using about 7 inches. (Sewing one strip of velcro on one end and the closing strip at other end) Please email as soon as you can to clear up my confusion. Thank you so much for your support and your cute and useful pattern.

      Hi! Great question! You are right - you only use 7". I put 14" because I was adding together the 7" of the hook side and 7" of the loop side of Velcro. Hope that clears up the confusion. :) Glad you are using the pattern. Let me know if you have any other questions!

    Seven years ago when I invented the arm handle cushion, I knew I had come up with an idea that would save not only my arm but other moms too. I worked really hard, sewed over 300 myself before finding a factory, and made sure to get it patented. Our US Patent was granted and I was ecstatic - all those years of hard work paid off. It's amazing when one small idea can change the marketplace and make moms' lives easier. Since it is patent protected, we encourage all posts like this to visit our website and if you need a copy of the patent, we can email it to you. Thanks!

      Instructions for a DIY version do not violate a patent. Read the laws.

      Where did you get the foam?

        Joann's has foam and some craft stores. I have a kroger store by me that had the foam in the camping department for only 2.99 so I got it there. Much cheaper!

    I was wondering how you got the toys on the ribbon if it is sewn into the material,

    I just finished doing this and it looks awesome, my sewing kinda sucks so it looks a little off, but it does the job :-).. I am new to sewing and I haven't gotten the hang of it :-/ thanks for the post! A pattern would be most helpful though :-) thanks again!

    A friend of mine pinned this on Pinterest. Well, I know that she can't sew, so it gave me the idea to make it for her. It took less than 30 minutes and just some scraps I had laying around! I figured that the fit would be super tight, so I shortened my stitch length and sewed an extra straight stitch in the seam allowance. I was skeptical that the Velcro would hold this closed, but so far it is standing strong! Thanks for sharing your DIY!

    P.S. Anyone else reading this tutorial, the seam allowance is 1/4 inch.

          Hello, I was wondering if I could get the tutorial emailed to me as well. My two sisters and I are all currently pregnant and I was hoping to make us each one. I would greatly appreciate it. Even it's just the measurements of the fabric and foam piece. I think I can figure out the rest. Thank you!
