Nesting, part 2: New Car Seat Cover

The infant carseat that I've used for my last three babies is about 10 years old now. Not exactly going to pass any safety checks. My friend gave me a carseat that someone had given her that is not even 3 years old. The only problem? A big melted crayon stain going all the way through the seat and even all over the belt. Impossible to get out. But when I found a tutorial for re-doing your carseat cover on this blog, I knew I had it made!

(okay so I forgot to take a good before picture of how the old carseat cover looked, but here is one picture I did take of the stain. Ooooo, gross!)

Now, here is the new and improved carseat:

I wasn't sure if I should really go this feminine, but I decided that if my next is a boy then I can always re-do it or maybe find someone who'd like to trade. But that's not going to be for a few years....


  1. I love it. You are an animal. I can't beleive you already finished it. I'm very impressed. Super cute. The pink polka dots was the right choice.


  2. Don't you just hate it when people post stupid little questions? Emily Jean Luv it

  3. I love it! You are so talented. What are you naming this baby??

  4. Natalie,
    How darling!! Did you make up the pattern offof the old cover? I think she'll look like a doll in her new carseat.


  5. The baby's name will be Leah, middle name as yet undecided.

    I took apart the old cover to use as a pattern for the new cover. My old cover was very simple so it was easy to do.
