Carseat Blanket

Getting ready for the arrival of Baby Girl!
I'm 37 weeks along today- feeling like "any minute now"
I'm so glad I got this done before she came!


I found the "pattern" on a blog called Calico.
I say "pattern", because she drew a picture a picture and 
her instructions were "make it look like this!"
Which I thought was hilarious, 
and a little tricky.
But I think it worked okay.


I cut out one half by looking at her picture,
and then folded it in half to do the other side
so it would turn out symmetrical
(or close to it!).


I decided to do my own little applique design
instead of piecing together the fabric like Cally did.

I also wanted the straps to be more adjustable, 
so I went with ties instead of button up straps. 



I loved using some fun stitches on my new machine!


I really like how the shape of this cover sits over the car seat,
instead of the dying battle of the draped blanket!
