Baby Car Seat Canopy


I've got a quick, simple project to share with you today.  I made this about three weeks before my baby was born.  So whereas it was quick- sitting on the ground cutting out fabric is never easy at 8 1/2 months pregnancy.

But I had to have it for my December baby.

I thought about making a tutorial for it but it was so simple it doesn't really need one. Plus a quick google search will bring up hundreds.

I did decide to with the simple velcro method and faux button on top-- which I think is cute.

The other fun thing about this canopy is I made it using up all fabric scraps I already had on hand.
I had bought the umbrella fabric from JoAnns intending to make another small blanket out of it, but when I decided to turn it into a canopy I realized I didn't have enough material.

So I turned to my scraps.  I have all these darling minky scraps left over from all the big blankets I make for my babies.  I love looking at this canopy now and seeing big brother's blanket, little brother's blanket, sister's and now babies extra blanket scraps. 


It's so nice to have I wish I would have made it for baby # 1 and not baby # 4.
