Car Seat Canopy Sewing Video Tutorial

We have included a video tutorial from FleeceFun that shows you how to make a canopy using fleece, although you could use any fabric you like. You can add cording as a trim and some nice soft flannel to make a cute little pocket and straps.

This blanket also snaps closed around the lower part of the handles, making it best for colder weather. To watch the video, click Play above ^

We love this version from Being Genevieve. She has used a colorful Polkadot fabric on the inside of her Car Seat Canopy and you can easily open it up to let in some light and fresh air.
