|Here are the cute contrasting fabrics that I picked out.|
|Thanks to Bitty Baby for modeling the strap covers. In this picture they are on the floral side. The one below has the striped side.|
The other project I did was the piddle pad. Having previously worked at Babies'R'Us I had seen these carseat savers often. They are designed for potty training kids, but also marketed to moms with babies. When the diaper blows out, rather than cleaning the whole seat pad, just remove the piddle pad and wash it. So... using their basic design of look and information I found on cloth diapering, I created my own carseat piddle pad. The top layer is cotton, middle is fleece, bottom is PUL. (water proof fabric)
|Here is the piddle pad. It is larger than the ones online, but I thought it would be good to cover up more of the blue on her seat.|
|My steal of a deal carseat. I know it's uber pink. But I can order new covers from Chicco if I have a boy first.|
Challenge of the week you ask? Oh, hmm... Sew something for a baby? No, that seems way to specific. Branch out a bit. Rather than making the same chicken salad sandwich you make for lunch every day, try it with some raisins today.
Or... if you love baby stuff as much as I do, try picking out some fabric that you would want to use to make a set of these yourself. We could do it together! It would be a blast!
