Car Seat Strap Cover

Now that the weather is warmer, that means more tank tops and halter tops. That also means the car seat is leaving marks on my poor Abby's shoulders. I decided to try to make her some fleece strap covers.



Now hopefully her straps won't dig into her shoulders and she'll smile at her favorite Dora sitting with her in the car. They were super easy to make.

All you need is:

2 pieces of fleece, 4 1/2" x 10"















4 - 5" pieces of velcro
2 of the hook side (scratchy)
2 of the loop side (soft)














Fold each of the 10" pieces of fleece in half "hamburger style". Stitch 1/4 inch around the outside of the fold.

Sew one side of the velcro to the left side of the square about 1/8 inch around the edge. Then flip over the square and sew to opposite side of teh velcro to the left side of the back. After both are sewn on it should look like the picture on the right.

Once the straps were folded up, I hot glued 2 Dora bottle caps onto each of the straps.

Looks super cute with her new Dora Seat Cover.
