I ordered the pattern months ago and have made about 3 dozen or so, seems like everyone I know is having a baby right now! I love the pattern and really love the idea that it keeps all the snacks, toy, bottles in the cart. I have modified the pattern to include extra toy loops and a second pocket. I always sew a matching tote to store it in in your trunk. I use a fun cute flannel for the inside, there are so many cute prints out there today and it stays nice and soft for the kid. I use a denim or canvas that coordinates for the outside so that it'll hold up to the sometimes beat-up looking seats. I use a fleece binding tape around the leg holes so that it's softer on the kid. I also make a matching blanket from the flannel and attach a loop to one corner so you can attach it to the cover's toy loops. no more blankets on the dirty Walmart floor! My friend little girl loves the blanket and carries it around by the handle everywhere she goes.

My friends now call me as soon as they find out they are pregnant and let me know what colors/theme they want for their's! Here are two happy mom's with their seat covers.

Dancing frogs and trains flannel with bright green canvas. She swears by hers. Evan uses it one the high chair at home, makes for quick clean up and keeps the food out of all those little cracks and crevasse.

Lady bugs and daisies flannel with red denim. She wanted an extra large tote bag to go with hers so she can use it as all around bag too.

Well down on page 7 of the google results I found:


She even includes a template for your own measuring.  I have not tried it, but it is the only free pattern I can find. 

I'll admit, I like the looks of the ones off ebay much better.

So, I was just wondering how much fabric you would need to make this cover?  And does the tote bag come with the pattern too? Is it Allison's?  Those look really great by the way.

OK  I  cheated  poor folks got poor ways.....   I  used a twin sheet.... at  home  drapped it  over a  chair then  set  baby  on it (hubby held her up not to fall  while  I  marked  for  leg  holes).  I  then  folded  the  sheet in half  and  added  a  layer  of  batting... I  simply  sewes  all sides  leaving  an  opening to  turn it....  then  sewed  around  where I marked  for  leg  holes  and  cut them  out  (think large button hole).  I  madea   rectangle shaped  elastic top pocket and a  few  velcro on loops  for  teething  rings......  it  was  comfy and  dry  on wet carts...  2 kids later I passed it on to a cousin whom has had 4 more kids and passed it  on to 2 more.  so  all in all it  may not have been looking too  fancy or  professional  but  8  kids  have  managed  just  fine a nd  it  still is  usable!  little  wear  showing  of  course  but  it  is  still holding up!.....

I acutally have that simplicity pattern, but my baby is too small for it yet, so I havent' tried it out yet.  Naturally, after I bought it I found this great pattern:


while you are there, check out the restaurant high chair cover.  its soooo easy!  its just a big "T" shape with a couple of holes for lets.  i made this one in a snap, and i'll probably make another one for my baby girl (i just can't justify coboys for her).

Actually I've been a big fan of Jan Andrea's site for a while, but i think this pattern must be fairly new (or I just haven't been there in a while).  she has a lot of great patterns for kids and babies...and moms too!  there is even a tutorial on how to make a hands-free pumping/nursing bra out of a regular old cheapo bra.  nice!

I know this thread is old but in case someone else follows it I found a nice pattern at www.makethemyourself.com.  It is reversable, floppy styled, has pockets and toy bands as well as leg flaps.  The instructions were easy to follow and I've made several of them.  Love it, love it, love it!
