REVERSIBLE Car Seat Strap Covers

First i want to thank all those who have been leaving me comments you guys rock!!! You don't know how good and how worth it -it makes me feel doing this blog just starting out to have such great people come and check out my stuff! Still no followers......but i'll take it one day at a time!

Ok moving on... i was so excited to make these straps for my daughters car seat straps since the ones that came with her car seat have been MIA since day 1. I will admit that these were so simple and easy i could of just made them all day....i love simple easy projects like that. maybe i'll need to put some in my etsy shop!

Before i start i want to apologize for the crappy  poorly lit photos i was so excited to make these and it decided to rain all day...so the natural light was far from natural.

Anyhow...here's the how-to-do

Supplies

Cotton Fabric(make sure to pre-wash fabric)
Minky
High loft batting(or any kind of batting)
Sewing Machine
Scissors
Sew on Velcro

First i cute out my fabric and batting squares 6inches by 6 inches, two of each one

Next layer them as shown batting-minky right side up-cotton fabric right side down on top of the minky

Pin together -Important tip when you sew this i found it easiest to sew with the batting side facing up.

You will want to sew starting at about halfway down one side sew around all 3 edges when you get back up to the top make sure you leave an opening so that you can turn it right side out.

Here's the little opening i left to turn it right side out ,before you turn it make sure to trim the  corners so you have a more finished look when you turn it right side out.

Once you turned, iron - making sure to turn under the opening . 
Then topstich around the entire thing.

 Next cut out velcro 1.5inches long and sew on underneath the topstich
And ta-da!! there amazing!
If you want to have rounded edges like the ones on the right i just used a cup to round the edges super simple 

Reversible is the best!


Enjoy!
