These are generally used for traveling as a high chair, but we needed a time out chair. I'm hoping this will cut it. The pictures are all Baby G in an armless chair, but I actually transferred this to a chair with arms because it keeps him from diving off the side, haha. I don't trust fabric THAT much. I mostly needed the symbolism though because after a few tries, I just needed him to sit IN the seat, not necessarily tied in. He's been pretty good about doing time outs if we sit with him and count.  I'm not doing crazy long time outs yet though- that will change as he gets older.

I used this tutorial from Tales of the Wife, but I tweaked it a little so I'll explain a bit of what I did different. As you can see, mine didn't hang from the top of the chair like hers does. It slips over the chair the same, but I didn't sew it together at the top.  I think technically I could use it reversible with the inner fabric, but I messed up the inner fabric so I won't be doing that... haha.

I figured out how big I wanted my seat to be and
then added a seam allowance, cutting out four pieces
of fabric all the same length. Then I put the matching pieces
right sides together and sewed up the right and left sides. Leave
the top and bottom alone.
Take the inner fabric and turn it right sides out.
Slip it inside the other outer fabric so the right
sides face each other and the wrong side of the
outer fabric is facing you. Match the top edges and pin.
Sew along the top. Turn right sides out and top stitch the top.
This is how it looks once you turn it and tuck the inner
piece back inside again.
Then I just made the seat piece to her specifications,
but with fabric straps instead of ribbon because I didn't
haven't anything strong enough (I think mine weren't as
long as her ribbon was, but I just measured to make sure it was enough
before I cut and sewed everything). I tucked the raw end (bottom) of the
seat piece into the bottom of the first piece and folded over the edges of that
fabric so it was all nice and hemmed. You could always iron it to make it look nice.Then I just
top stitched it all around. I went over the part that attaches to the seat a few times to make sure Baby G
didn't destroy it on Try #1. Haha. I always like to reinforce straps and other pieces that can come undone.

And here is is minus the child...
