First, select a safe and comfortable seat. Do not be too cheap in looking for one. Be sure that you end up buying the best quality one that you can afford because this is all about your child’s safety, so buy something that will never fail you.

Next, measure it. Add an additional 10 to 15 inches into your measurements. This is very important because the material will be wrapped around the car seat itself.

Choose the right type of fabric or material that you prefer to use for your cover. Cotton fabrics are the most common choice as these types of fabrics allow air to move freely through the fibers, thus providing a balanced air circulation. Nevertheless, almost any type of fabric is okay to use. Just be careful on which type you choose and always consider your baby’s comfort. Also, choose a fabric that is washable.

Use all the measurements that you’ve gathered as guidelines. Create first a pattern by using tissue paper, an extra sheet of fabric or cloth and a transparent paper. Fix your pattern on the fabric and secure it by using pins. Carefully cut out the fabric by following the shape of the pattern.

After cutting and removing the patterned fabric, fold the fabric in two and make sure that the outer surfaces or sides are facing each other. Then, sew the fabric edges or cover them together by using a sewing machine or through hand sewing. Turn the fabric inside out and continue sewing its edges. Be sure that you always leave a 1-inch hole in the fabric.

Attach a 1-inch hem onto the fabric. Firmly secure it by using pins and then sew the hem and the fabric together. Make sure to leave a 1-inch open hole.

Put a garter or an elastic band through the holes you have left open. You can do this quickly by putting a pin on the tip of the band and then insert it with the band in the hole. Depending on how you want the top to be designed, you can either pin or sew the ends of the bands together. These elastic bands can be used to tighten or loosen the cover.

Lastly, carefully put on the cover firmly on the baby car seat and fix any portions that need adjusting.
