The car seat I used for my daughter is purple. Lovely, but it doesn't quite work as well for my now 8 week-old son. So, when I saw these car seat blankets I was in love. It covers the outside of the car seat and doesn't let anyone know what the original color scheme is - unless you look inside. Plus I have an insert that covers the purple on the inside as well (more to come on those later).
When I thought about what fabric I wanted to do for my son, I realized that doing one with the minky fabric on the inside layer would make for a darling (and exceptionally dark) cover for his car seat.
I also enjoyed doing a different stitch on the edge for his.
