Car Seat Canopy

Car Seat Canopy Instructions
Materials Needed:
1 yard and 4 inches of Fabric A (top layer)
1 yard of Fabric B (bottom layer)
Sew-on Velcro (2 inch wide)
A rotary cutter is very helpful, but you can use scissors.
1. Cut both fabrics A and B the same size around 34” X 40”. Some fabric may be a little wider than others. Leaving at least 4 “ of fabric A left.

2. Set aside 4 “of fabric A for straps.

3. Lay both fabrics right sides together. Make sure they are nice and smooth. Cut all corners to make them rounded. You may use a large dinner plate as a guide.

4. Sew around both fabrics leaving about 8 inches so you can turn it right side out. Before you turn it snip the corners to prevent bunching.

5. Press the turned cover with an iron making sure the top layer is slightly over the bottom layer, so it will not show from front.

6. Top stitch all the way around also sewing shut the open portion. Set aside.

7. Cut two pieces 4” X 17” out of your top fabric for the straps.

8. Fold straps in half, right sides together.

9. Sew around all three edges, leaving a couple inches for turning.

10. Turn, press with iron and top stitch all the way around.

11. Sew on velcro. I use 1 1/2" by 2". Make sure the hook side of the velcro is sewed on one end and the fuzzy side sewn on the opposite flipped side so it with attach around the car seat handle.

12. Take finished canopy fabric to attach straps.

13. Find the exact center of the fabric canopy by folding it in half one way and in half the other way.

14. Sew each strap on 2 1/2 to 3 inches from center (leaving about 5 to 6 inches between them).

15. Pin center of strap to center of canopy.

16. Check on carseat to make sure it has the right fit as some may have different shapes.

17. Sew straps onto the canopy. Make a 1" by "width of strap" box around the centered pin.
