Back in March I purchased a "new" machine from a lady at church. I got it all oiled (it hadn't been used in years), and then it sat. First I didn't have a convenient space to use it, then I didn't have time. I finally found both!
|My "new" baby :)|
The project was a car seat cover for TJ. I'd made one for Phoenix, but since he was born in the winter I used batting, and it was much too warm to use for summer! I was able to find fabric I liked, and discovered after the fact that it was really on sale... I spent less than $7 on this project, and saved $14.42. Yay!
And here it is:
I used this tutorial. If I were to make another, I think I might make it just slightly less wide. I had an idea for this type of cover back when Alex and Chase were babies... I just didn't ever develop the idea (I didn't even own a machine at the time, and wasn't all that interested in sewing). I love it because it's much like a blanket, but the straps keep it out of baby's face. Also, it keeps the handle of the car seat accessible.
Now we just need a baby to put in the seat. ;) Thankful it will be soon!!
