So as you guys probably know I was expecting baby #2 very soon so I decided I needed to hurry up and get my carseat cover finished. I know there are a ton of tutorials for these out there, but I needed to make one anyway so I figured I'd document the process.
1 and 1/4 yard of fabric
1 and 1/4 yard coordinating fabric for opposite side
Sew able Velcro (I got mine from Walmart)
Disappearing marker (optional but always helpful)
Determine where you want to place your handles on the top fabric and place pins.
I find that the easiest way to even them up is to pin across one of the top ends and then pin along the side end too to hold it in place. Then use your straight edge or ruler to mark and cut so the top and bottom fabric are the same size.
Now turn it right side out through your hole so your wrong sides are now together. Iron again and stitch around the edges again. This will close up the hole you left and help the sides to lay flatter. You basically have a 2 sided blanket right now.
*Remember that they will be on opposite sides because your strap will wrap around the carrier handle.
And in case you guys were wondering...
So hopefully ya'll aren't sick of ruffles and ruffly projects because it looks like there's a lot more in my future! Thanks for stopping by! Hope you are having a wonderful October!
