I made this leopard print carseat cover for my step sister in Montana. she's expecting her first baby in June. the cover is furry, and plush, because I sandwiched batting between the top and backing Smiley mmm, comfy ride! Grr baby!

wow, that is really cute---like the britax one.  Did you just measure a carseat or did you have a pattern?

why thank you! actually, I ripped the crap out of the old one on it. I drew around the pieces on butcher paper, and used it like a pattern. Smiley I did one before this one without a pattern, OR previous seat cover, and I just laid butcher paper in the seat, and traced where the seams would have been. It worked just as well.  Grin

That is amazing! I can't believe I never thought of trying to make my own cover. I've just always looked at the $50-$60 price tag to buy a new cover for our Britax and went on my way.

Fantastic work!
