Baby Car Seat Sleepsuit Pattern
Do you have a baby car seat sleepsuit for your baby? If not, then
you need one! It's the perfect addition for a new babys' closet.
Here's some of the great features of this sleepsuit...
- 2 full length zippers for easy access
- holes front and back at crotch allowing seatbelt to slot through comfortably
- detachable hood - uses 4 buttons to attach hood to suit
- fits age 1 - 9 months
- dimensions - chest - 22 inches, length - 22 inches, sleeve seam - 7 inches
- does not interfere with normal seatbelt use
- stitches used - chain, single crochet, slip stitch, (also back stitch for sewing in zippers)
- yarn - worsted weight/aran/8ply
Picture this - you're on the way home at night and baby falls asleep
in the car fully clothed. You really don't want to wake them up to
get their pajamas on, so what do you do?
It's not really very comfy to sleep in clothes, is it? I know I don't
like it. You try to keep them warm in a blanket, but they kick the
blanket off as you're driving. You can't put it back in place while
you're moving - chilly, unhappy baby.
So - wouldn't it be useful to have this sleepsuit you could use in the
car seat? Then you can transfer a happy sleeping baby right into
bed if you need to, without waking them.
Here's the answer - crochet this baby car seat sleepsuit, then when
you're out somewhere but ready to leave, get baby into suitable
sleepwear/underwear, pop them into this sleepsuit and into the car
seat they go.
There's even pattern instructions for a detachable hood , which can be
buttoned to the sleepsuit for travelling, then you can remove it
before placing baby comfortably in bed.
The 2 zippers which go the full length of the baby car seat sleepsuit
allow you to quickly and easily snuggle baby inside.
The sleeves can be easily folded back for smaller
babies, and there is plenty of space for baby to be able to wriggle
little legs inside and still stay warm.
The rabbit motif has loops at the ends of the ears which double as
buttonholes for attaching the hood. There are also loops at the
sides of the neck to attach the back of the hood.
The hood is not too large, so it won't fall over babys' eyes and
frustrate them. That's happened to me too many times before!
So - I've thought long and hard about this baby car seat sleepsuit
and now here it is. It's worked in worsted weight/aran/8ply yarn and works
up quickly. No need to use the same colors - choose a color you
like. Maybe work the front panel in a different color (you'll need an
extra skein if you choose this option).
Any Mom would thank
you for a gift like this. I wish I'd had one when mine were small!
