Custom Car seat Covers and BIG NEWS of something ahead

Recently I did a post with a wish list and the last thing on my wish list was for a baby girl to go in a cute car set like this.

Well a BUNCH of you, especially the other expecting Mom's in my readership, wanted to know where I found this adorable car seat cover . . . . . and the answer is originally on ebay.  I fell in love with these seats because the designer seemed to put such care into the details and quality of product. Brenda makes a point to make the covers out of cotton with an 8 oz. padding (she doubles up on the padding so its 16 oz.'s of padding). With the holes to fit your 5 point harness like a glove.  Included in most of her car seat sets, is the replacement cover, canopy, and reversible safety strap covers (check the description on all car seats covers on her etsy site for the details of how it is made and what is included).  I looked carefully at the feedback from those who purchased covers from her and there was an overwhelming response of love for the product, the only consistent comment was that it took some time to get, and that is because Brenda takes care in making your custom car seat, so if your ordering be prepared for it to take some time, it will be worth the wait.

BUT, so many of you wanted to know more, that I contacted the designer of the ebay shop Little Monkey Butts to find out more so I could share.   The exciting news is that she also has a Etsy shop called Little Sheep Boutique where her prices for the car seats range from $55 - 65, in addition she also sells a few other cute baby accessories to match the seat covers (this means you get to avoid the ebay bidding). 

Here are a few of her other CUTE covers (and yes she makes some styled for boys)
and her Wipe Case w/ 2 burp clothes.
