Carseat Cover and Strap Cover

After we found we were having a boy I decided the little yellow flowers on the first cover would confuse people (even though I liked it) so I made a second cover, grey chevrons, teal flannel underside with teal piping.

I also made strap covers with the gray polka dots, teal blue on the other side (they can be reversed) and a thin layer of batting.

For each strap cover you will need:
  •  2 pieces of fabric cut to 6” x 6”
  •  one piece of batting  cut to 6” x 6” 
  • 5" piece of velcro
 So for a set of strap covers you will have 2 batting squares and 4 fabric squares and 2 pieces of velcro
You will lay down your batting first, the first piece of fabric right side up and the second one right side down.Pin together and sew all the way around using a 1/4” seam allowance leaving a 3 inch opening on one side so you can turn it right side out.  

Turn right side out, putting the batting to the middle. Push each corner out nicely and iron the entire piece. Iron each opening to the inside then using a 1/4” seam allowance top stitch all the way around each piece.

Cut a piece of velcro each about 5" long.   The fuzzy side of the velcro pieces will go on one side of the cover and the loop side of the velcro will go on the opposite side and end of the cover.
Here is a great tutorial as well
