Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Read and understand basic sewing terminology and symbols.

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.
