DIY Carseat Poncho

Learn to sew a car seat poncho.
These car seat ponchos are easy to make and can keep your children warm in the car seats and out, without sacrificing safety. Learn to sew a car seat coat below!

Whipped this up today because we've been trying to figure out how to keep Baby G warm without putting a jacket on him in his car seat (they apparently can compress in an accident which can cause injuries).

I used this tutorial.

It was difficult to put the hood on, but overall it was easy. Instead of putting a fringe on the edge I sewed the edges together when I added bias tape. I love the Star Wars fabric!

Here's some pictures from sewing it.

I love writing tutorials on how to complete sewing, woodworking, gardening, upcycling, and many other types of DIY projects. My motto is, "If you want it done right, do-it-youself." Sometimes it's just easier to create the idea than it is to explain to someone else what you want. My favorite project is the one everyone told me couldn't be done.
