I bought this fabric a long while back, and knew it would be used as a car seat cover if the baby was a boy. And he is! If you can't tell I love bright colors for babies, and I think they enjoy it also.
You could definitely use a heavier fabric for winter and cooler months.
After cutting the fabric to the size that would fit nicely on on the car seat, I rounded the corners.
Then I sewed right sides together around the edge, with a small opening.
After turning it right side out, and ironing it nice and crisp, I did a top stitch around the edge.
The handles are sewn on the outsides on both sides, so it can be reversible. They stay on the car seat handle with a small strip of velcro, and the handles also have small decorative buttons.
Of course Bryson needed matching strap covers.
Sometimes they even get a little slobbered on.
