Pattern Description:

When car seat canopies became all the rage, I thought they were super cute, but I didn't like two things about them:

1 - they don't allow access to the car seat handle when they are open and

2 - they prevent hanging toys from the handle for baby.

I solved both of those problems by adding a zipper opening in the front and toy loops inside. I also added some cute trim across the top and a handy rear bustle to provide ventilation without opening the front. This is also great for peaking in on baby. You'll love this canopy for your little one.

-------------------------------------------

From the pattern back cover: Infant car seat canopy with front zipper, interior toy loops, and a rear bustle for ventilation. Views B and C have a contrasting bottom band. View C is lined with a third fabric. All views include contrast handle straps and piping or ruffle.
