This car seat cover was a quick, fun project for me.  It makes a perfect gift for a new baby. A cover is wonderful for keeping a baby asleep, warm and safe from germs when out in public.

This is a project where you can definitely employ your imagination to embellish it as much or as little as you want.  I chose to piece a strip of my back polka dot fabric on the front top and bottom.  I also pieced the straps… but that was out of necessity.   I only bought 1 yard of the backing fabric, and didn’t have enough fabric complete the straps like I wanted, with backing fabric on one side and front on the other… so I pieced them, and in the end I liked them better than the way I had planned.  I love when this happens.  I make a mistake or run out of fabric, and the fix ends up being my favorite part of the project.  I think it’s because I’m forced to think out of the box and get more creative.

Here is what you need to complete this project:

  • 1 1/3 yards 100% cotton fabric or flannel for top
  • 1 1/3 yards 100% cotton fabric or flannel for backing
  • Sew on Velcro (I prefer not to use Velcro with adhesive, as it gums up my needle.)
  • fabric marking pen (either water erasable or disappearing) or fabric marking pencil
