My carseat liner needed a serious overhaul.  It wasn't outdated but the liner was just dingy.  I would have loved to have bought a new carseat but that wasn't in the budget.  So, I picked apart the old liner using the pieces as a pattern.  Take lots of before pictures so you can go back to reference them.



There were darts here in the original...there are darts in mine.



I added elastic on the underneath of the top curve.  My original liner always kept slipping off up there so it's for added security.  Only change I made.



This liner was four basic pieces.  I used the original batting and added an extra layer of batting cause it had gotten a bit thin.  If you put the new batting between the new fabric and old batting, then you can  use the seam lines on the old batting as your template to make sure you are placing the seams in the right place to fit your carseat. 

Here is the original tutorial I used.

I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

This is so cute I love the fabric you chose. I know if I have another baby, I will have to re do the carseat and the booster seat too.

what beautiful fabric!  I always wished I had time to redo the carseat covers for my kids.  especially the first one, as it was an older (not expired, mind you) model.  You work looks very neat and profesional.  well done!

Looks great! I've had requests from people to redo their carseat covers but I've always been too intimidated. You may have inspired me Cheesy
