How To Make A Car Seat Canopy, Nursing Cover, Cart Cover, Highchair Cover, Changing Mat, Baby Carrier Cover & Infinity Scarf Tutorial with Spoonflower Fabric
Car Seat Cover Pattern
High Chair Cover
Baby Carrier Cover
Cut two 27" x 27" squares. You may have a little bit of the selvage in your cut but as long as it's less than 1/2 inch it will be turned under or caught in the seam allowance.
Place the squares right sides together with the greatest stretch going crosswise.
Begin sewing from the bottom left-hand side using a 1/2 inch seam allowance and a stretch stitch. Sew up the left side until you are 1/2 inch from the top. Put the needle in the down position, lift the presser foot and rotate the fabric. Stitch the top of the cover leaving a 14 inch opening in the middle. Repeat the same process on the right-hand side.
Press the seam allowance along the top of the cover down. Apply Soft Stretch Lite to the unsewn portion. This will help to stabilize the hem and add extra support so it doesn't become stretched out from repeated use.
Topstitch around the opening at the top using a stretch stitch. Once you reach the end of the unsewn portion lower the needle, lift the foot and rotate the fabric to get clean straight lines.
Keep the cover inside out and apply Thermoweb Soft Stretch Lite to the hem.
Apply the Soft Stretch to the wrong side of the hem. Iron the entire hem, let it cool and then peel back the paper liner.
Fold the hem up and iron the entire hem once again.
Using a stretch stitch sew around the entire hem of the car seat cover.

Sylvia Jeanson says
Could I please get instructions for the baby car seat.
Is there printable instructions and can you sew it by hand if you can’t find your sewing machine?
Wanda Henley says
Can you tell me where to find a discount code for the spoonflower fabric ? It is absolutely my favorite but it is too expensive.
Just please please make sure people know not to use them in hot weather - the temperature inside there would be so intense. Every summer people need to hear that putting a blanket or cover over a car seat or stroller can be fatal.
I love the idea for cold weather, and the versatility, and that fabric is gorgeous!
