This past weekend I attended a baby shower for a good friend of mine. I thought long and hard about what to get her. I finally settled on a Fleece Car Seat Cover. You can buy them at the store but they are kind of plain. They also have a zipper which would make me kind of nervous with a baby. So of course I decided to make one. It was so fun!
I actually used a pattern to make this although it is probably not necessary. If you can find one on sale I would recommend purchasing Butterick 4416. This is the pattern that I used and found it pretty easy. The hardest part is probably picking out the fabric! :) I thought this fabric looked like something my friend would pick out. Hope she thinks so too! :) The pattern does not contain a flap for the face but you could easily make one. (Cut a piece of scrap fabric 3 inches longer. Finish edges and sew one side onto the cover. Attach velcro tabs to underside of flap and top of cover.) I chose not to include a flap since I thought the baby could breathe better. Overall this was a great project!
