    Car Seat Covers are a Great Idea

    When I saw these car seat covers, I thought they were a great idea. I stuck with the nursery theme of elephants and made one for my future grandson out of two flannels.

    ​Very cute! I see Moms struggling with the heavy car seats and wonder how they do it.

    Great idea. We're expecting our 11th grandchild in Dec. & this would be a good shower gift. Where did you find the pattern?

    I found a few patterns online and just picked parts I wanted. It is made from two 36" x 41" pieces of fabric sewed right side together and then turned right side out.
    The velcro strips are made from two 3" x 9" fabric pieces sewed right sides together and turned right side out. Then top stitched around edges 1/4" and put on velcro or snaps. I made two of those and pinned on the large blanket piece not in the middle but about 23" from short edge making it a little longer in the front than in the back, then I centered them 4.5" from center line.
    I folded up the corners 7 3/4" so the corners would not drag on the floor. See photo pattern attached.

    Kathleen, Thanks for all the info. I have a fun flannel print that will be perfect for this.

    I made 3 of thes when my granddaughter was born. They are so useful and so expensive in a boutique! I have also seen free patterns for ones that have a flap in the middle that you can open so they can see out-but daughter didn't want one of those. I did cottons on the outside and flannel on the inside.
