It's getting cold and its hard to keep a baby warm in the car seat. I don't like having to dress them in a ton of layers that could be hard to buckle the seat later and then you have to undress them when you get home. So here is a great solution that you can sew to make your life easier when traveling. It also helps shield them from the snow, rain, wind, and keeps the sun out of their eyes. You can use any cute pattern of fleece you want to personalize it or you can make it look like a yoshi egg. I don't have much experience sewing, so this was the first time I've ever put a zipper on anything, and the first time I've sewn elastic as well. So if I can do it, anyone can do it!

If a yoshi egg isn't your thing you can also check out my other cover I created that has extra features.


What you need:

 1 1/2 yard of Fleece (I had a little extra but better safe than sorry)
Sewing machine
Small sheet flexible plastic(optional)

Step 1: Measuring and planning

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 double layered my fleece for extra warmth. Then mark with pins on the fabric where you want to sew the Velcro that goes around the car seat handle, if you are double layering you will want to pin and sew the two layers together before doing this step. I wish I would have used green fleece for the layer on the inside, it would have been cute.

Sew velcro where your pins have marked on the fleece.
Top work. Will be looking to adapt this for a pram.
Thanks! It should work great for that too!
Ha I can just imagine the cuteness factor seeing that coming down the sidewalk. <br>Great idea. :)
I've had so many people ask me where I bought it. Having it on a pram would be adorable!
