My cousin Kimmi is having a baby in October and for her baby shower, I wanted to make something for her. I haven’t sewn much in my life but wanted to get some more practice and I have seen some *super* cute baby car seat covers that allow a mom to carry her baby in style, while protecting them from the weather, sun and unwanted touching by strangers! I thought that something like this would make a great gift. I didn’t really take pictures to show step-by- step instructions but you can go here to see the tutorial I used from a blog I found! It was quite simple and I am really happy with the way it turned out!
I obviously don’t have kids, therefore I don’t have a car seat so… these pictures were taken at Walmart!
I heard Kimmi is a big fan of owls and I love them too, so I thought that would be a fun addition! Doing the owl like I did, with the hand stitching and frayed edges, you can’t go wrong because it isn’t supposed to be perfect, that is the cuteness of it! I just cut this out of a scrap of fabric and pieced it together! I love it, hopefully she does too!
Here is the inside fabric. Stephen helped me pick and decide on these and I think they coordinate quite well! This picture was a little rushed because there was an employee giving me a shifty look and I don’t know if my crowning moment would be getting kicked out of Walmart for taking pictures!
