Forest Friends Infant Car Seat Cover

June 18, 2014 Sarah Coggins

Friends of ours were expecting their first baby next month (in about 2 weeks). She showed up early on Monday – healthy & perfect. Oops in that I hadn’t yet shipped the gift! Luckily I had made it already.

Completed Forest Friends infant car seat cover.

They had an infant car seat cover listed on their registry so naturally I made one instead. I had fun shopping for fabrics. I was trying to find something feminine but not pink overload. This fun forest friends print jumped right out at me.

Surprisingly, our son also loved it when I showed up with it asking if it was for “our baby.” Aww. At the time we still didn’t know whether we were expecting a boy or girl so I assured him I would go back after to buy fabric for our baby. (Note to self: still need to do that  – but we have a few months still.)

Hook and loop tabs secure cover to infant car seat.

For the inside I chose a complimentary light green check patterned flannel. Just dark enough to help block a little extra light during nap time.

Green check and forest friends fabrics pair to create a one of a kind infant car seat cover.

I packed it up and got it in the mail yesterday. Thankfully, they are in the same city so it should be delivered today – just in time to welcome the new family of 3 home.

PS – thanks to LM for once again letting me use her infant car seat for photographing!

    I am a beginning sewer and would love to give this a try. Do you have a pattern for this?
