“Easy Pattern”

Such a simple idea but a must-have for any baby! The car seat cover up allows you to completely cover your car seat without the use of blankets that tend to slip off. Now you can cover up your baby while maintaining your fabulous fashion sense.

*Please note: Please maintain proper ventilation at all times. Never leave your child unsupervised while using the Car Seat Cover Up.

•Keeps strangers from touching your new little one
•Provides protection from the cold and rain
•Provides shade during the summer months (while providing proper ventilation, of course!)
•Keeps germs off of baby during the cold and flu season
•Decreases distractions to let a tired baby sleep

This is the perfect baby gift for someone that has everything.

Materials Needed:

-1 yard of main fabric (NOTE: If you’re using a fabric that has a direction to it, you’ll need 42”.)
-1 yard plus 3 inches of coordinating fabric (the extra fabric is for the straps)
-8 inches of Velco (I use 1 ½” sew on Velcro)
-Matching Thread
-Measuring Tape
-Cutting Mat
-Rotary Cutter
-Fabric Pencil

When it says to measure from the top to put the straps, what is considered the top,(42 or 35 1/2) I don't have a car seat .

This is a great pattern! I've had four babies, and all of them have been born during cold and flu My last baby was lucky that I had this pattern! I loved that I could cover her up from the cold and keep the bright sun or store lights out of her eyes when she was sleeping. It's also great for preventing strangers from touching your newborn baby!

I made this for several baby gifts getting readyv make another one. Everyone was thrilled with it. It is so inexpensive and practical.

I've made this pattern three times now. It was one of the most useful things I made for my daughter. It kept the rain, cold, sun, wind, and nosy people away from my daughter. I've since made it twice more as baby gifts and both moms were thrilled. It's so super easy and by being a little creative you can make each one unique. I added grosgrain ribbon bows to the straps to girly it up for my little princess.

LOVE this pattern!! I made 4 different ones for my baby carrier. I also made one for a few friends as well. So easy and I love how my baby could sleep peacefully without being bugged. It also makes a nice cover, then a makeshift blanket when the weather turned unexpectedly cool.

After losing too many blankets in parking lots and dirt, I was delighted to find this pattern. I made two for shower gifts and they both turned out great. Getting ready to start on one for my newest baby. The directions were easy to follow and I had great results even though I'm a beginning sewer.

Just made this as a shower gift! It's a fantastic pattern and very easy to do. I made mine out of a football print material so the daddy would have something "masculine" to help cover the baby. I'll use this pattern often.
