Oh this is so cute. I don't sew a lick but this makes me sure wanna learn how. My mother in law is a great sewer (is that the word lol). She's offered to give me lessons anytime. Thing is she's kinda old school and wants to teach me how to quilt and stuff like that. Maybe, just maybe I can take this tutorial, along with my stuff and she will teach me. She probably will, afterall she did sew my doggies pajamas last year. Yes, you read that right, my dogs LOVe to wear their jammies. In fact, my little dog, known as the baby will bite you (and break the skin) when you try to remove his jammies for washing. Thought you all would get a good laugh out of that!

ahahahaa!! I LOVE it!! My little dog gets super excited when she sees me take out one of her outfits - (she has far less now that I have my son). Getting her clothes out means she's either going for a ride somewhere or someone is coming to visit her

yea this.. just be very, very, very careful. And I wouldnt sell them if you did make them. Thats a liability nightmare in the making!
Most carseats come with them or if you make them, I would try to get the measurments of the seats original ones (padding width, etc). You have to figure these companies spent oodles to find the right numbers to keep it safe. I lost one for our Keyfit30 and was going to have someone make them but on second thought just thought if I wanted replacements I will contact Chicco and buy originals.
I think they are totally cute and would prefer custom ones like this, but I am massively paranoid about carseat safety. One of my good friends is an EMT and if you heard the same child-wrong-in-seat-in-accident-has-internal-decapatation stories I do, you would be paniced all the time as well!!! So just be careful please!

My PSA for the day

Those are cute but Eddie Bauer makes some of the softest ones I have ever found. DD loves them and they come in several colors. :-)

Although I wouldn't mind trying this on some pink minky.
