Baby Shower Gift

A sweet friend of our family is about to welcome to the world her first little bundle of joy!  She is having a boy {so near and dear to my heart} and calls him her little monkey.  That of course led us to finding the perfect  and most adorable monkey fabric for a shopping cart cover.

I have’t made a shopping cart cover {GASP}.  I am so not a germaphobe so my poor little guys have pretty much always just sat in the shopping cart sans cover.  Despite how cute they are, I just wanna get my boys into the cart, get on with shopping, so we can get back home and stop terrorizing the store with the sounds of 4 little boys running amuck!

Well Kayla wanted a cover so after a quick Pinterest search I found this DIY version for a oversized cart cover over at Little Blue Boo.  She calls her little guy her little monkey so we found just the right fabric for her!  Isn’t it precious!  I got a minky dimple dot fabric for the other side which makes it super soft and cozy!  I made the cover reversible and put the pockets and toy loops on BOTH sides of the fabrics BEFORE sewing the sides together (so I didn’t follow the tutorial completely).

In progress

Here is the finished cover.  Since this is a gift I couldn’t really get an action shot.  Maybe in a few month’s when the little monkey is big enough I will get an action shot from his mommy :)  Until then, here is the best I can do!

Completed cover

If you want a cover of your own, hop on over to Lil Blue Boo and get her tutorial (link above).

Happy Shopping with your new cover!
