This stretchy baby car seat cover pattern is perfect for multitasking. It can double as a nursing cover. I love this lighter cover that is perfect for warmer weather, while still keeping the baby away from breezes, the sun or prying eyes. Make a few in one sitting so you can easily rotate and wash them.
For This Project you will need:
Fleece Fun’s Free Pattern (available at the end of the post)
Double needle (not necessary but nice to have)
Stretchy Baby Car Seat Cover Pattern Tutorial:
Step 1 – Cut out the Cover
On the fold cut out 2 of the pattern.
Note make sure when you cut out the pattern that you refold the cloth so you can cut out two side by side on the 58″. Don’t just rely on how it was folded on the bold or you’ll cut a hole in the middle and not have enough to cut a second piece.
Step 2 – Begin to Sew the Baby Canopy
Using a 3/8 seam allowance and stretch stitch on your sewing machine (or serger) sew the sides of the baby car seat cover
leaving the top and bottom (where it’s marked in pink) open.
Step 3 – Finish the top and bottom
Turn the top and bottom under 3/4 of an inch.
Press and Pin
As this point you can either sew a zig zag stitch along the edge of the top and bottom to finish or
You can turn it right side out and top stitch with a double needle,
the bottom and the top of the baby car seat canopy.
Trim away any excess for a clean look. That’s it you’ve just completed the Stretchy Baby Car Seat Cover Pattern DIY.
