Lime Green Car Seat Canopy

So,  I couldn't resist sewing my sister a carseat canopy (another great invention that didn't exist when I had my babies!)  Her stroller/car seat is black, silver and lime green.  So, I picked out fabric to match the carseat.

My mom with the baby in the carseat.  You can see a little bit of the canopy.
Here is a good look at the canopy.  However, the carseat that is serving as the model is actually mine and navy blue.  Doesn't quite match.  I live in a different state than my sister, so the only pic I have of her carseat with the canopy is the one above.   So, here are some photos I took before I gave it away.

I really love the fabric.  It has a fun pattern, so it's cute for a mama to pack around. But since it's green and gray and matches the carseat, it is gender neutral.

I love the way it turned out!  I couldn't resist trying out of the decorative stitches on my new sewing machine.

Oh Leslie, I LOVE the car seat canopy. It is absolutely darling and will work well for any future kiddos--boy or girl. I love how it keeps the sunlight out of Harry's eyes while we're driving, and also how it tricks him into thinking its nap time when we're out and about. Furthermore, I absolutely LOVE how it keeps nosy old ladies from rubbing their hands all over him infecting him with who knows what... !! :)

Thank yo SO MUCH!
