Vroom Car Seat Tent

18 posts in this topic

I have yet to think up a name for it, but Vroom Car Seat Tent will have to do for now.  I made this for my landlady to give to a friend that's becoming a grandma for the first time.  I didn't use a pattern except for the car appliques.  I used Caron One Pounder in a dark blue for the main body of the blanket/tent and RH for most of the edging, except that the white chain ribbon is a vintage yarn.  The handle straps are a dark green Bernat Super Value.  I happened to have the car buttons.  I made rough pattern notes.  If anyone is interested, I will share them.  I just ask that you use your own pictures and not sell the pattern itself, but other than that, you can do what you like with the finished product.  

 

Thanks for looking :)

Edit:  I finished writing the pattern out.  My hats off to you pattern writers.  It's hard work.  Please keep in mind that it's not tested and it is still a rough draft.  I'll make changes and edits as I'm making the second one.  I'd be happy to hear comments or suggestions.  I have lots to learn :)

 

I posted the free pattern on Ravelry:  Basic Car Seat Tent.

I sent the Ravelry pattern link to you ladies.  Teakacee, the message to you didn't go through.  I added the link to my first post.  

 

Let the confusion and questions begin!   :lol

Thanks, everyone!  I'm hoping to make another one this weekend to double-check the pattern and make the necessary corrections.  As I had mentioned, the pattern as it stands right now is a very rough pattern.  After that, I think I'll get to work on writing a pattern for a teapot cozy I made for a swap.
