Seat Belt Covers


Alex has needed the use of these covers for a long time.  No matter what we do, the seat belt always rubs his neck pretty good or gives him red marks when we loosen up the straps.  I feel bad for the little guy.  I figured I could make them myself but then I came across a great tutorial from Make It and Love It which helped me to move myself to actually get them done.  Since I had some left over fabric from the wedding gift that matched my car seat, I didn't have any excuse anymore.  
  
I did a few things different then the tutorial did.  Instead of using Bias Tape I just sewed the two pieces together and then flipped it out and then sewed the opening closed.  Also, instead of filling the entire thing with batting I just used a 2 inch strip of fleece in the middle.  I felt that my batting made it to big.  I also used Velcro that you iron on.  It is MUCH easier and I think it looks better.
