Car Seat Cover

I've never had a car seat cover for my other kids.  I really wanted one for this baby, but I didn't love the idea of paying between $40.00 & $50.00 for one.  So I decided to give it a try and sew my own.  With my sewing skills, this can be a risk!
I found a tutorial from the blog Sumos Sweet Stuff. You can find it  HERE. It was easy to follow & it worked!

You pick one kind of fabric for the top.

You pick a second fabric for the bottom & straps
Then I added a couple flowers to the handles.
I am very happy with how it turned out & it only cost about $15.00!!

This is one of the reasons I absolutely LOVE blogging...there are SO many talented people out there!
I'm so grateful they are willing to share their great ideas & talents. It's also an added bonus for me when there is a tutorial with pictures! I'm a picture helps me out a bunch, it really motivates me to try new things that I normally wouldn't.
