I have a new baby niece born last week. Little miss Lauren Jane is the sweetest thing, with a head of soft brown hair and looking just like my lovely sister-in-law.
For a gift, I made her a car seat cover from the tutorial I made in January.
The fabric was too sweet for words with racoons, birthbaths, birdhouses, and little birds in the trees. I fell in love.
Does anyone know what this fabric is called? And from whom? I cut off the selvages when I bought the fabric and didn’t write it down.
Making my first car seat cover for a little girl, I was compelled to embellish a bit more. So I added the rick rack. It helped the fabrics work together just they way I wanted.
For the inside fabric, I used a tender little floral print in pink. I was so happy with how it turned out.
Since I’m posting about car seat covers, I thought I would also share the cowboy car seat cover I made for my dearest friend, and her new little boy born in April. I gave it to her months ago, but never shared a picture.
This Alexander Henry cowboy fabric is so darn cute. I’ve used it before, and I would use it again if I could. I made a border all the way around the top, which turned out great. One of the things I love about making this cover, is as long as the overall dimensions end up the same, you can do whatever suits your fancy.
If you have a new baby in your life, a baby car seat cover makes a very useful and thoughtful gift.
