Before/After Swing

My sister loaned me the baby swing that she used for my nephew, Devin, who is now 12. Being frugral, I'm all about borrowing baby items or purchasing used items, but sometimes, the items could use a little cleaning and/or updating. I had to chuckle after seeing the dinosaur fabric that was used on the swing cushion. It would have worked perfectly fine, but I dug through my fabric stash and found something a little more modern/me, made my own pattern from the dinosaur one and whipped a new one up. The white nylon strap was also "not so white", so it spent a night soaking in vinegar and then a trip through the wash and it now appears brand new.
