Car seat made new...

A very dear friend of mine is expecting Twins any day now. She already has a gorgeous Daughter, and therefore one car seat, so when double trouble (!) was predicted she asked to borrow my baby car seat. This is it, brand new carrying Little Miss, eight days old. However, eight and a half years later, it was looking a bit sorry for itself! Whilst on the internet one day, I stumbled across a truly inspirational blog, Made, http://www.dana-made-it.com/search/label/Carseat%20Covers and was motivated to transform my zebra print seat... ...into this!
The Twins are one of each sex, and as there is already a girl in the family, and hence lots of girlie things, I decided to cover it for the boy! I had some Laura Ashley cowboy fabric waiting in my stash for something special, and this was it... I can't tell you how happy I was with the finished result (as was my friend) and I'm looking forward to meeting the little ones and seeing it in use!

It just so happens that Dana (Made) is having a month celebrating boys, there are so many wonderful ideas for those of us who love to create, but perhaps fall short of ideas for boys, check it out...http://www.dana-made-it.com/

  2. It looks great, well done! My son has lots of that fabric in his room, I found it great for cutting out all the little designs on it.

    I have been looking at the craft for boys ideas too, you have done a great job on the car seat must have been tricky to shape it...
