So, I really have to confess that I have coveted those cute cute little carseat cozy thingies with the zips up the side. I went looking at them….the one’s I saw were $90. Maybe there are more affordable ones somewhere else…but anyways…I didn’t buy one. All the cool kids have them though!
Not long after I was looking at them I was reading the blogs I frequent…and guess what I saw! This pattern!
And here’s what I made
I used a big chunk on fleece that I actually bought over 5 years ago from the remnants pile…didn’t do anything with and ended up using as a blanket, and I used the flannel that I got on sale at fabricland before Ruby was born for $1.99 a yard! So, this cost less than $10 including the purchase of the pattern!
It’s a pdf pattern, so you just download it and print in on your printer and tape the sheets together, no waiting. It was really easy to follow (even for a beginner like me…although I did make a mistake…it’s not like there wasn’t a very clear instruction with a big photo right there…but…I somehow ignored it..lol), so yes, clear instructions with pictures showing you what to do at every step and really clear explanations.
Love it love it…. see how cozy she looks I put it in her stroller yesterday and it was wonderful in there too!
Edit: Oh look! Now's she's famous! :-)

Harold and I had always talked about getting a video camera before Ruby was born....but they seemed so expensive (turns out they've come down a lot in price) and I really want something small...no bigger than a camera. So, a Ravelry friend sent a link to her Vlog (video blog) of her little one ...and I loved it...so I thought, hey, our nearly 5 year old camera has some basic video function...why not give it a try...so here is our almost a minute of video from this morning...it actually turned out better than I expected :-)
Now, here's hoping that I can get it uploaded and haven't typed this all for nothing :-)
Warning: If you don't want to hear my attempt at singing while I have a nasty cold...then keep those speakers OFF!
