Car Seat Cover

 I have been busy working on baby projects here and there and here is one more that I just finished. I have a couple more things that I want to make before she gets here - burp cloths and baby legs so be looking for those coming up! I am feeling a little bit tired so I am glad I can cross this off the list.

A Car Seat Cover

I la la la love the fabric!
It is one of the fabric choices I was debating for her room until I gave in and just bought it. It is from the Heather Mulder Peterson Collection from Henry Glass.


I made it with the fun ties that I can tie into bows instead of the Velcro.
I think they look dainty and girly and I love it!


I also folded the back fabric over the top fabric and sewed it together that way. I think it adds a little bit of weight to the cover sides and helps it lay down better. Plus it gives the top a little bit of pop!


It is crazy to think that I only a few more weeks and an adorable baby girl will be hidden underneath here!



Do you think my husband will feel manly carrying this around? hee. hee.



I didn't follow a tutorial - I just sort of made it up as I went since it is a fairly easy project if you know how to sew but I am sure you can google car seat cover tutorials and bunch will pop up for you!


P.S. I am linked to this Party!

Very cute! But with my third baby, I am just too lazy to use a tie-on cover. I just throw a large flannel blanket that Grammie made over the whole seat and call it good.

I had a cover with my last baby and it was a lifesaver during flu season ... kept all those coughing, touching strangers away. :) I like the bows on yours.

Looks fabulous! Love the big bows!! I know you said you didn't use a tutorial . . . I am wanting to make one for my friend, are the straps in the exact center of the piece of fabric? And can you tell me how much you used? I don't have any kids . . so I don't have any measurements.
