Car Seat & Stroller Blanket + Pattern

{Car Seat Blanket}
My favorite baby accessory.  I'm not just saying that.  I really think you will love it. Its unique, but ever so practical.
Not a car seat cover.  This blanket that has 3 openings to allow your 5-point harness buckles through to wrap and snuggle your baby!




{The Pattern}
This is an easy pattern that comes in PDF with full color step by step instructions!  Oh, and its only $6.;)

How does an Epattern work?
Easy Peezy. 

The Epattern comes via email {via my ETSY shop}  or you can just pay and download it here. Just open it up, print out the pages, and tape it together.  Follow the step-by-step picture tutorial and you'll have your blanket done in no time!

I {heart} this blanket. Why?

-It keeps your baby warm without having to layer them with too many clothes before you leave the house. {Who likes to try and put a sweater, coat, etc on their baby just to have them sweat to death in the car or post office?}
    -It's EASY to wash. If you're little darling has a big blowout, no worries. Just take it out, wash it, and put it right back in. {I used my carseat with both kids and it still looks brand new.
    -It won't fall out. {We've all thrown a blanket on our babies as we walk out the door only to have it end up in the 1st puddle you see.}
    -You can also use it in strollers that have a 5 point harness
    -It hides your baby from all of those "baby adoring", germ infested people!
    -It makes a great baby gift!

    Cost: $6 for the PDF EPattern.

    Emily,
    I love your blog. There is so many fun things on here. I especially love your car seat blanket (I really really want one). It is so smart. Hope one of these days we can see each other, I sure miss you.

    Rachel said...

    OK I'm totally in on the drawing, and you looked great on GMU! Very articulate about why you (and a lot of moms) choose to stay home.

    GroverFamily said...

    i think this is a great product! i wish i would have had one when my boys where little, but i have a few friends having babies and i would love to pass this great product on to them!

    Hernandez Family said...

    I love this idea! I had a police officer tell me that you are not suppose to have your little one wear coats while in the car seat so a blanket that won't fall off and keep baby wrapped is the perfect idea!

    Dawn said...

    You are so good! What a cute blanket! I want to watch your segment. Where do I go after I go to abc4.com?

    Alicia said...

    I totally want in on the drawing. If I don't win, I am coming back & buying a blanket from you for the upcoming winter time! What a great idea...oh, & I saw you on GMU! Loved it!

    Gina said...

    Hey Emily! I didn't know you were so crafty-why have we not talked fabric at Marilyn's? (Uh, because we're mostly chasing children around!) Anyway, super cute stuff. If only I still had someone is a little carseat...

    jakenapril said...

    emily, this is great! you are so super talented! must've been all that oregon rain! (hahaha) anyway, i'm always looking for new baby items, especially ones that keep them warm in winter. this is perfect and my little one will love it!

    Daisha said...

    You're segment was awesome ( I watched it online)! You looked great. I'd love to win this blanket - it totally matching our carseat: What fabric line is it from - or did you already say that?

    Miles and Erin Johnson said...

    Hey! It's my first time on your page. I'd love to be entered into the contest;) I was also wondering if you could tell me what fabric you used on the second car seat cozy blanket? The one with the orange, yellow, gray, blue, & pink? I love the fabric & would like to incorporate it into my nursery.

    Thanks!!!

    Mandy

    Bought your pattern and made a blanket for my 10 week old grandson. We traveled to Arkansas and did an evening walking tour of Christmas in Old Van Buren. It was quite frigid, but my grandson stayed toasty warm. Works equally well in the car seat or stroller. Will be making another one for my other grandchild who is traveling to Virginia for Christmas. Thanks for the pattern. It is great!
