More car seat covers

I've made a couple more car seat covers – one for me and one for a friend. I am having a hard time choosing which one I want to keep. I think I'll let her choose. I went for a less bulky bow on these, even though I adored the look of the other. I also tried different snaps on the straps with a lower profile so they would lay flatter. Velcro would probably work too, I just didn't know how durable that would be. On the blue cover I used the same geometric black and white print on the inside, but I really love the larger print I found for the lining of the tan and black cover. The buttons on the blue/brown version are my favorite so be sure to click on the pic for a closer look!

I've had a few requests for my pattern. I will have to send it via snail mail, so email me your mailing address if you are serious.

No pants allowed

Since my girls will only wear skirts/dresses, I've decided to sew some to add to their collection. I have some much cuter ones cut out and ready to sew but these were super simple and therefore were finished first. Ava picked the fabric for hers. She loves Tigger and Pooh. I couldn't resist – one seam and some straps made from an old T-shirt so they would have some stretch.

Emma's skirt used to be a tunic top of mine. I cut it in half and used one part as the petticoat. This is my kind of recycling!
