I was lucky enough to be given a car seat to use for this baby girl. I wanted to make a car seat canopy to match to keep the sun and wind away from the baby. It’s also nice to cover her up at the grocery store if she’s sleeping.
Because it’s summer, I used two layers of cotton fabric so it’s not as hot as if I had used minky on the underneath layer.
Since I didn’t have anything in this color scheme I did go fabric shopping at Joann. The purple on the car seat was a bit tricky to match and I didn’t want something just black and purple since it’s not as cheery as I’d like it to be. So the springy feel to this fabric was just what the car seat needed.
We’re down to 16 days until our scheduled c-section (which is 5 days before my due date)! I really need to take a couple maternity pictures before she’s here. When I think about this being our last baby most likely, it makes me appreciate these last few weeks of pregnancy even more.
