Default Where do you get your sewing patterns

I want to make Savannah a blanket that can go on her carseat (myride 65) and her soft carrier for the winter. I could make it without a pattern but obviously would like to see one so I know what worked for someone else.

Car seat (does not come out of the car)


carrier. We have 2 different kinds of these.

Pinterest, www.sewingmamas.com and general searches. I find that blog type tutorials give really nice reviews.

I follow a lot of sewing blogs to find tutorials. Also sewingmamas.com is awesome. Here is a tutorial for a car seat blanket, if this is what you are looking for? http://projectsbyjess.blogspot.com/2...t-blanket.html She has a really great sewing blog!

About the leg warmers, I tried making them, but my sewing machine even with the part that comes off so that you can sew around things...the leg warmers still won't fit around it. So I had a really hard time trying to make those.

Hmmm...the only ones I have seen are the tents (for the infant carriers) or the stroller blankets that have ties on the sides, but I'm not sure where you would tie one onto the carseat.

Im going to try this one but alter it so that the top corners will snap or velcro around the straps of the seat AND the carrier.
