Bria's Car Seat Cover

I have loved making car seat covers for a while now but this one was extra fun because it was for OUR baby girl!

I bought the colorful floral print fabric at Hancock fabric. 
The ruffle border is actually leftover fabric from a flat sheet I had used from a quilt. I made it into a 3" ruffle to go around the whole cover.

I made the handles on it out of scraps (white fabric: from some pants I hemmed & blue: scraps from placemats I made). Then I added a hot pink button just for looks. I actually put Velcro on the inside to attach it easily to the car seat. 

I love the fabric on the inside--hot pink & white stripes. I found 2 1/2 yards of it at a thrift store a few years ago. It didn't smell weird or look used so...I bought it :) I was so excited to finally use it!
Yay for pink!
