My First Free Pattern!

Hi, dearies!  I am happy to share my first free pattern with you.  It is a car seat tent for when you take the baby outside and need to brave the elements.  It's designed to keep the wind or sun out as much as possible.  I don't want to call it a blanket or cover because searches usually turn up the car seat blankets with the two slits to pass the seat belt buckle through.  This tents over the baby.  I made it with a car theme for a little boy.  The car appliques are not my design.  I added a link to the pattern for the appliques.  My pattern is for the car seat tent, and you can add whichever appliques you like.  It is available on Ravelry.  If you are not a member, please register.  It's a great site, and you can add patterns you like to your library to keep track of them as well as find lots of other patterns and even share your creations and projects.

The pattern has not been tested.  Since I have to make another one, I'll clean it up as I use it to make the second car seat tent.  I think it's clear enough for now so that you can get started on one if you're in a rush.  I started it on Friday, January 25, and finished it on Sunday, January 27, all assembled and washed and blocked.

So here...
