My husband seems to enjoy them more than the rest of us, but summer always seems to bring some sort of road trip for us.  We've been fortunate to drive through some pretty fun places and I have no idea what this summer much have in store for us but I want to be prepared.

So I did some research on what sorts of things I could sew to make our inevitable journey more comfortable.  As I usually do, I'd like to share my list of sewing car accessories with you.

    Anything added to a carseat, including thin strap covers can result in carseat malfunctioning and killing the child.

    Hurricane María smashed my car’s passenger doors in Puerto Rico in September 2017. My husband and I still use it and we are fixing it little by little.
    I cannot wait to sew some of that good stuff for my car, that I love so much (Vitara Sidekick 1992). Thank you!

    I would like to caution against sewing anything for car seats unless you have researched the issue with your car seat manufacturer. Adding anything to the car seat may void the warranty and reduce the safety of the car seat. Here are some useful links discussing the issue.

    Thank you for these ideas. I am interested in ideas for making an iphone holder for the dash because I do not have the road maps in my car systems and use my phone as my guidance system

    The link to the So-Sew-Easy Car Caddy pattern links to your free pattern page but there isn’t a Car Caddy pattern on this page to read or download. Where is this pattern?
