DIY Carseat Cover {Free Pattern!}

I can't believe that I actually found time to do a sewing project with two kids. Let me repeat. I did a SEWING PROJECT with TWO KIDS! *applause* Granted, the whole project probably took me an hour and a half to two hours. It was pretty easy and so much fun. I think the most tedious part was putting the pattern together. I got the free pattern from this website here. It is completely free! There are definitely other projects on this site that I want to make, they are all so cute!

I went to Joann's and Walmart to find some fabric for it. The blue minky was on a screaming deal, $3 a yard! At Joann's, they had the same blue minky for $13 a yard. Yeah, no. I found the butterfly fabric in the remnant section at Joann's and they always have the remnants pretty much 75% off so I got a great deal on it! I already had the thread and buttons.

I just LOVE how it turned out! It is so cute and lightweight. Since I made it myself, I got to pick out the fabric and buttons. I didn't really care for the car seat canopys, I felt like they were too short and didn't quite cover the whole car seat. 

My next project to make are car seat coolers! I can't wait to make them, I found the CUTEST fabric for them! Stay tuned for the next post!

Toddler Tuesday

A friend of mine gave me this great idea to start blogging about the crazy things my toddler says and does! I think this will be a lot of fun! It's a great way to keep up with my journaling. Since today is Wednesday, I will start next week. For today, I will be doing a little introduction on my toddler!

Miss Abigail Jane is a 22 month old rambunctious little girl! She loves playing outside, going for walks, watching movies, and helping take care of her little sister. Some of her favorite movies are Frozen, Toy Story, Wreck It Ralph, 101 Dalmatians, and most recently, Up. She loves swinging on her swing and playing with bubbles. Abigail is such a happy little girl and her smile is contagious!

I really hope to keep up with this little blog series, I think it will be so much fun! I hope you will laugh with us as you follow along with our little family!
