Car Seat Project

So this was my latest project that took me 2 days. I started with the original car seat cover and stitched the whole thing, including the batting from the material. I took the material pieces and used them as a pattern and traced them on the fabric I wanted to use. I then sewed the original batting to the new fabric pieces. Then I sewed all the pieces back together again (like humpty dumpty). The bias tape was the hardest part for me, I have never used it before. The other hard part was making button holes, I've never done that either and let's just say the sewing machine I am using is so old that it is mustard yellow and I could barely get it to do a zig zag. The canopy was a challenge but turned out great. I then made matching shoulder pads that are reversible. I've spent about $28 in all the supplies and still have tons of material left over so I am now making a car seat blanket. I'll post that next. I love this material and I love how it turned out.
