Now that you know that a car seat poncho could help to keep your child warm and safe this winter, I want to share some details about the fleece car seat ponchos hand-crafted by me, Elaine Searer.First of all, the name “car seat poncho” doesn’t tell the whole story. These ponchos are great for traveling, but they are also warm, comfy, and easy to wear for other cold weather activities. The ponchos are made from two layers of anti-pill fleece, making them a soft, warm alternative to a winter coat. They can be layered over sweatshirts or sweaters or other jackets. These ponchos are especially convenient for those kids who don’t like to wear coats.
A car seat poncho is perfect for children of all ages who travel in car seats. You can see in the photo above that the snap-front poncho is just right for this eight-month-old. The poncho goes over the car seat buckles so nothing interferes with the child’s safety. Hand slits make it possible for children to hold a book, snack, or toy in the car, too. My handcrafted car seat ponchos are not just for girls. The style is gender neutral, and the fabric choices allow for customization to anyone’s preferences. Here’s a snap front infant sized poncho in a print that would be suitable for boys or girls. The snap front ponchos close with color coordinated plastic snaps from KAMsnaps. The fleece ponchos that I make are great for those moms who like to carry or wear their babies close to them. The poncho does not interfere with the carrier, but still provides warmth for the baby. My ponchos are carefully handcrafted using only anti-pill fleece, and the generous size range can allow you to purchase one poncho that can be worn for two or more years by your favorite little one.
The zipper front ponchos are made with a sturdy nylon coil or molded plastic two-way jacket zipper and include a zipper tab cover at the top to prevent the zipper from rubbing sensitive chins.
The ponchos come in a wide range of sizes and are priced according to size. Please visit my Etsy shop for more information at www.elainesearer.etsy.com.

Keep your little one warm and safe this winter with a hand-crafted fleece poncho. All of my children’s items meet CPSC safety requirements.
