  • How to make a cars. Carseat Strap Covers - Step 1
    Step 1

    Download the pattern, print it, and cut out the pattern pieces. Then cut out your fabric and fuse the interfacing to it according to the manufacturer's directions. (note: if you're using a minky dot like I did you'll need to be very careful ironing it so you don't crush the dots - don't use very high heat)

    For Bias Tape option:
    Place your fabric wrong sides together and begin wrapping the edges with bias tape. You'll want to sew close to the open edge of the bias tape all the way around leaving about a two inch length of bias tape at the end. Fold that over and sew it down (it should be folded to the inside of the strap cover.

    Then add your Velcro to the ends and either sew it down or use no-sew Velcro. (I recommend sewing it down so it stays put when you wash it.) Then fold over and you're done!

    For the Snap version:
    After fusing the interfacing to your fabric, mark the snap placement from the pattern and attach the snaps per the manufacturer's instructions. (make sure you attach the snaps so they are facing the right way)

    Once the snaps are attached, place your fabric right sides together and sew around them leaving a 2 inch gap. Trim the curves and turn the piece right side out. You can hand or machine sew the opening. Press and you're done!
