I was debating if I want to make anything for X'mas, and when I saw this on PR blog I couldn't resist!
I first bought Simplicity 2916 but 2553 is much better in my opinion.
For comparisons and details, please check my blog Car Organizer Blog
Pattern Description: Crafts - car organizers tailored for baby, toddler, teen, and office-on-the-go sewing pattern. Robin Greenwood collection.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I dislike how it uses so much interfacing! But I understand it's needed... I love how it came out!
Fabric Used: Quilting cotton in various characters
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I didn't use the shoe laces as suggested to tie it around the car seat... Since I had enough fabric left I just cut about 1 1/2in strip, folded lengthwise and stitch, then turned it around for a long string.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I am in the middle of making about 5 more of these for X'mas gifts. It's recommended to everyone who wants to organize their car. I don't know about you but my kids love to bring their toys to the car and it just ends up on the ground...
