Baby Car Seat Cover and More Burp Cloths from Cloth Diapers

I have been busy grandma sewing!  I made a baby car seat cover to shield my grandson from the sun, cold, and unwanted strangers..  I found the pattern free online here

I originally made ten burp cloths but discovered they were not enough; they quickly became multi-purpose cloths instead of just burp cloths.  So I made ten more of them.  This time, I didn't make any with the fabric going down the center because we want the absorbency that the thicker center of the cloth diaper provides.  I found ideas here and here.

It takes just a bit of fabric to dress up ordinary cloth diapers.  I had fun going through my stash to find fabrics.  And I visited my local quilt shop to get a bit of this wheel fabric.   

My son is a photographer, so I had fun using this camera fabric for one of the burp cloths.

The yellow fabric below reminds me of jacks!


It's wonderful

  1. Those are cute. I hopefully have a while before grandma stage.

  2. My second daughter was a champion burper and I caan see how those cloths would have come in handy.

  3. My son never spit up but I used the cloth diapers just in case for burp clothes and for things like drool. Nothing like a cloth diaper to wipe things up. That car seat cover is adorable too and such a great how it attaches to the handle.

  4. Beautiful car seat cover and burp clothes. I think car seat covers are wonderful. You are really being a wonderful grandma!

  5. It is important that the baby car seat is the right size! Don't save money when it comes to safety!
