Its getting cold and I needed to keep my baby warm. So I first made the yoshi egg car seat cover http://www.instructables.com/id/Infant-Car-Seat-Cover-Yoshi-Egg/, and I had so many people that loved it, and wanted to know how I made it. So it  inspired me to come up with one that was cute, better put together, with pockets, and toy/pacifier holder to keep track of things when you are on the go. I plan on getting a light up toy to hang on it, so that when the door is shut my baby can watch the pretty lights.

What you need:

1 1/2 yard of flannel fabric
1 1/2 yard of fleece fabric
2 feet of elastic
8 Inches of velcro
Brown, tan, and white sheet of felt
Brown, and white thread
1 zipper
Sewing machine
Scissors
Pins
Embroidery machine (Optional)

Step 1: Measuring, preparing, and adding top velcro

Take your fleece and drape it over the car seat, make sure you have plenty of fabric on both ends to add the elastic later. I left extra in the front to give my son kicking room because he has long legs. While it is draped measure and pin what you plan on cutting off . Then pin the fleece to the flannel, and cut off the extra. Then pin the length sides together and sew them together. I sewed the sides together first, so that I could add the elastic to the ends later. Turn the fabric right side out, and drape the fabric again on the car seat, then mark with pins where you plan to add the velcro that keeps the fabric to the handle. Just below this velcro you will pin on another piece of velcro that will keep your door open. Sew velcro where your pins have marked on the fleece, and another piece just below these.
