PICTORIAL: Seat Belt Cozy Cover

Sewing Tutorial: Seat Belt Cozy Cover -- great scrap buster perfectly sized for kids! | The Inspired Wren

This is one of those projects I didn't think I would ever need, until I needed it. The Peanut had taken to "wearing" her seat belt on her upper arm instead of properly on her shoulder. In one very quick afternoon I stitched up a fix, only slowing down long enough to take pictures as I went. Now you can also sew a Seat Belt Cozy Cover with this quick, scrap-busting pictorial -- perfectly sized for kids!
