Car Seat Quilts for Brayden, Jack and Rhoda

Car seat quilts are very handy because they can't be kicked off by the baby or blown away by the wind. The ~22-25" x 30" quilt size with long ties makes it easy to attach to handles on a stroller, shopping cart, car seat, bouncy seat, etc. It can also be used as a play mat or even a changing pad in a pinch.

I made Brayden's car seat quilt in August 2012 with a monkey theme using sage green, browns and banana yellow accents. 

It can be flipped down in either direction so the baby's name can be shown or not... 

I printed some labels using Spoonflower and this is the first one I used.

I also made a matching sensory tag blanket.  

Jack's gender wasn't known at the time but his shower was done in a Little Golden Books theme.  Remember those books?  The Pokey Little Puppy is my favorite.  I used some official Little Golden Books fabric by Quilting Treasures and various alphabet themed prints to make his car seat quilt in October 2012. 

The shower invite requested books so I found a fabric panel for an ABC Animals book in a similar color palette and made that too.

I also made baby Rhoda (last name) a mostly sports themed car seat quilt in October 2012 with special touches of puppies and snowflakes.  

The varsity style letters were hand stitched into place.  
So cute!
