Too cute Tuesday!

Kristina asked me to make strap covers for her infant car seat to make it girly for little Evie. I bought this adorable flannel with the fairy princesses on it at Joann's to use for the burp cloths that I made and Kristina absolutely loved it! So she asked if I had enough fabric left to use it for this project.

These are super easy to make. Just cut 4 pieces of fabric 4 1/2" by 6" out of some kind of soft fabric. I used flannel and ironed fusible fleece to each of the 4 peices to add the squishy-ness (is that a word?) I used the end of a roll of thread and a disappearing ink pen to mark the rounded corners and cut them off. Then I placed 2 pieces wrong sides together and used my zig zag stitch around the edges to hold them together. I used double fold bias tape to edge them. Then I cut a strip of velcro and attached the hook and loop pieces to the short edges of the rectangle. It's like a potholder that you fold over and around the seat belt. Super easy and really cute!

Then I made a cosmetic bag and business card holder out of this wild fun fabric with pink polka dots for the lining.

With all the great fabrics available out there, it's just too easy to have a too cute Tuesday!
