carrier covers?

Have any of you made your own carrier covers? I'm trying to find a cheap way to make my blue carseat pink! I found one by bumblerider that would be perfect but, it's $59.00. Any advice?

  • You can get on with a zipper front at walmart for 20.00 and under.

  • I don't think you are supposed to put any new covers on your carseat... maybe the company sells something you can buy

  • Blue isn't that bad to have a girl in it (I'd worry if it was a boy in a pink carseat lol). I'd get a bundleme instead in pink (or another complimenting girly cover) to put over your existing carseat. Bundleme's are great and can be used as jackets so you don't have to over-dress your child to take them out. Or you can just use it as a cover and take the top of the cover off. The winter bundle me is $40 and the Bundleme Light is about $25. I have both. I don't know what I'd do without them.

    I'm suggesting that because I don't know how much I'd be willing to mess with a carseat to try to change it cosmetically and still have it be safe.. That would just make me nervous.

  • Maybe you could try dying it?

  • I do know that you are not supposed to use any aftermarket products on a carseat. Your best bet would be to contact the manufacturer (Graco, Evenflo) and order a replacement cover through them. Anything else voids the warranty on the seat, and if your child is injured in an accident, the carseat company will not be liable.
