I've been searching for a pattern for a baby car seat cover with the canopy part also. Does anyone make these and would care to share their pattern with me? Or know where I can get one. It would be greatly appreciated.

Lord Bless You!!!

The first place I look for baby things for my granddaughter is Jan Andrea at Home website.  I looked on the site and found this:

"Patterns I do not intend to add (but have been asked about several times): infant car seat covers that replace existing seat covers; infant car seat covers that go over the baby. The first one is because replacing an infant seat cover with a third-party cover voids the seat's warranty, and I'm not comfortable going there; the second, because I don't have an infant car seat to measure from, and they're all different anyway (and I want to reduce people's overuse of portable infant car seats outside of the car, not encourage that.)"  http://crafts.sleepingbaby.net/

If Jan can't do it, you'll have trouble finding a pattern.  Good luck.  A friend made a standard one without the canopy and she just looked at a ready-made and copied it to fit the seat.

I want to do the same thing and I found this one.

It uses your car seats existing padding so to not compromise the safety. If you find a better one let me know Smiley

I don't know about the seat cover except to disect the original and make patterns from it using the original filling, as mentioned in another post.

Regarding the cover-over, allfreesewing on YouTube have a free pattern and tutorial to make one to fit your car seat.
