OLD made NEW!

OLD made NEW!

Sooo…. it has been a long time since I have posted a blog- I figured I better get something up soon.  I hope you will like this post- it is very simple and easy.  Maybe you will make one of your own!

When I was pregnant with my first born, Clover Grace, I was given my nephews old car seat.  I thought, AWESOME!! Something I don’t have to buy!!  But… I wanted to change up the cover and make it super girly and cute.  So, my mom and I cut out a bunch of bright and fun material with pattern edged scissors.  Put the material on iron on backing, and ironed the material squares onto the old car seat cover.  After that, we zig-zagged stitched the squares all over the car seat to make it secure to the cover.

I sewed a ruffle to the top of the car seat to give it a more fun look to it.  I added some patches, and made some ribbons and sewed them on as well.

This project did take a while, but it was worth it 🙂  My daughter uses this car seat all the time.  She has used this car seat for 2 1/2 years already, and will use it for several more.  This was TOTALLY worth doing and she LOVES it!!

About lovegracemercy

You should know this is my very first blog and I have no idea what I am doing- so this should be interesting :) So now I am supposed to tell you about myself: First and foremost, I love Jesus and I am blessed to be a child of God. I am also a wife, to a godly, handsome and wonderful man. I have two beautiful children, Clover Grace and Valor Grey that I am blessed to stay at home with. I am unique in my fashion and in what I sew and design. I absolutely love little children vintage designs. Color, lace, cotton and knits are what you will find in my sewing closet (that I have to share with the family jackets and umbrellas). I have been sewing for many, many years...even though I am only 30. I was blessed to have my beautiful, abnegation mother teach me how to sew. My first project was a peasant blouse, ( that I still have in my closet) from a Vogue pattern. Since then, I have made several duvet covers, pillows, valances, pillowcases, dresses, baby bumpers, bedskirts, bloomers, pantaloons, mens dress shirts, pants, shirts, pretty much everything!! Although there is so much more to share, I am sure you are bored with reading the "about yourself" section on my blog. I hope to post some new designs, old designs, instructions on how to sew with out patterns and step by step with pictures on current projects.
