Car Seat Blanket
Pattern: Car Seat Swaddle Blanket by Made By Marzipan (I can't link to the individual pattern, you have to search from the home page)
Materials: Nursery Fabric-Elephant Splash Packed Elephants and green polka dot fleece from Joann Fabrics
Notes: This was a very straight forward pattern and came together really quickly. I didn't like the look of the unfinished holes for the straps so I zig zagged around them in a contrasting color (orange). I thought about adding a blanket stitch edging around the outside but I liked the modern look of the orange around the holes and decided to leave it.
Pattern: Molly's Sketchbook: Wool and Liberty Teddy Bear from The Purl Bee
Materials: Same as above
Notes: The pattern for this bear is extremely well written. I've never sewed a stuffed animal before but the tutorial made it so easy that it all came together beautifully. I thoroughly enjoyed the process and would definitely make it again.
