Dare I say: Two in One! Car Seat Cover/ Baby Blanket!
We're expecting our second baby shortly after we're expecting the first snow. I didn't use a car seat cover with my first babe, but decided that I should give it a try with mr. winter baby. Not only will it block the wind and keep the snow off him while we go back and forth from the car, but it will help me save face whilst being the hormonal, paranoid, mom-zilla I turn into the first couple
days weeks months following babys birth. You know, the don't touch my baby! Don't breathe on my baby! Don't even look at my baby he's so fragile, and if you wake him up- I'll... Overload on protective mommy instincts here. Now baby can be hidden from view and will probably go undisturbed from the kind people who mean no harm in cooing and admiring. And I won't have to stick my foot in my mouth. Win- win.
I cannot wait to lift up the cover and see my handsome baby boy sleeping peacefully inside his car seat! To make this, I checked out Mommy By Day, Crafter by Nights car seat cover tutorial and loosely followed her direction. Using of course different fabric, and quilting the top layer in horizontal stripes. And, darn it, I had to leave off those darling bows she added so as not to emasculate my little man.
