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 ^

Here’s a brilliant and inexpensive idea that we found on Etsy.  It is multi-purpose and you can use it as a car seat cover, breastfeeding cover and shopping cart cover.

It is very versatile and is easy to pop in your bag. It’s a highly awarded ‘mothers choice’ product that you won’t want to miss. Check it out here 

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.

This gives your baby good ventilation and also still keeps them shaded. Fnd the full instructions here
