I've looked everywhere on the internet for a tutorial on how to make or recover an infant carseat cover. I want to replace the one I have on their now thats old and not very cute. I've heard you can use the old one as the padding and just recover it but I'm too scared to try and figure it out myself I'm sure I'll mess it up. I have a couple friends too who want to do the same thing. I would love love love a tutorial on how to do that!! I love your tutorials thanks so much!


i don't have an infant car seat anymore but I totally wanted to do one. i will….eventually. i will try to find a good one to link too at least! a grocery cart cover is a great idea – i'm putting it on my list!


i have a brand spankin' new sewing machine and now a million and one ways to try it out. thank you for the compilation!


Thank you so much for this comprehensive list of baby projects – that is exactly what I need now. I am 5 months pregnant and just bought a huge stack of beautiful fabrics. I think I'll start with the changing pad cover and then work my way through the craft list 🙂
