I have never made this before....I think I have a few more stitches. Do you have a you tube and are you on Facebook...

This Car Seat Cloak is so lovely! The baby will be comfy and warm in the car whether your just driving around the city or going for a long drive out of town. I like the color combination used here. The light gray and purple combo is perfect for a baby girl or baby boy. This will actually look great, too for adults. This project can be made into a bigger size and voila! you have your own poncho with hood. I'm gonna make this for myself, my daughter and her 5-year old daughter. Can't wait to start this project.

As part of my job with the local Health Department, I trained new parents in how to correctly install car seats in their vehicle. I wish I had known about this pattern because I would have immediately recommended it to our clients! This pattern is easy to work up, and because it goes over the entire seat and child, is much safer than having the child wear a coat. Kudos to this designer for a safe alternative.

This is a great alternative to a blanket because you can be sure it won't fall down and you won't have to turn around in your seat to retrieve it. Plus, this looks cute enough to wear outside as a poncho too!
