This is so so easy and just uses scissors and a fitted baby crib sheet!

Please check if the crib sheet fits over the car seat before starting this! I have a Maxi-Cosi Pebble and it fits perfectly. When you do this step smooth the sheet over the whole seat, making sure that sheet is flat across the whole seat.

Here’s what to do next:

Pop the crib sheet over the car seat and smooth it out across the seat. Hold the sheet just under the shoulder straps and unhook the sheet from the bottom of the car seat…

And, there you go! A car seat cover to catch all baby’s crumbs, sick and dribbles! It also keeps baby cool when the weather is hot.

    What a clever idea! Makes so much sense – kept having to remove the actual cover and wash it regularly because of all the sick incidents! #SundayStars

      Yes that was part of my issue too, it was in dire need of a wash. Thanks for commenting x

    Looks like a good idea – and very straight forward to make.

    What an amazing idea, and so simple. I’ve never seen this before but will definitely be giving it a go-my car seat is looking so grubby. #HowtoSunday

    This is a fantastic idea, I never thought of using a baby sheet, I wonder if I can find one to do the same with my boys big seats, they are so messy and sometimes we have no choice but to eat in the car. If you buy a pack of plain coloured sheets you can also dye or tie-dye to make them brighter too. 🙂 x
