I have heard about these covers and was so happy when I found a tutorial to make one. I thought it'd be the perfect 'project' to work on if I found some energy.... three weeks away from my due date I'm not feeling like doing a whole lot of ANYTHING these days but this was a quick one - thankfully! I love that this cover is just two cotton fabrics so lightweight which is important here in Florida - I figure this will deter unwanted touching of my baby but also block the bright sunshine as I'm taking her in and out of the car...
Here is a link to the great tutorial from the blog Cluck Cluck Sew that I used and an example of the cover she did: car seat cover tutorial

For my fabric I used some of the Moda "Botonay" line - it's fabric I actually won through a contest from "Fabric Chicks" - a fantastic fabric store in Coupeville, WA. They sent me three full yards of this print in three different colorways and I've been trying to figure out what to do with them.... This was a great project to use it on! The lining fabric is a simple green on green scroll pattern that I found at JoAnne's and the 'straps' is from a Fat Quarter also purchased at JoAnne's.
