Keeping Babies Cozy, One Cover at a Time

Welcome! We are sisters Lacie and Katie, and we are the duo behind Sophie Marie Designs. Our shop began in 2008 as a way to fulfill many hopes at once, allowing us to work at home, flex our creative muscles and spend a little more time together. Our goal from day one has been to produce a high quality product and provide our customers with great customer service.

We created and loved these car seat covers for our own kids. How handy, how practical, how cute! we thought as we toted our little ones around, sheltered from the winter weather. How lovely not to lose another blanket! How nice not to have to worry about the baby being too exposed as we juggled groceries, older siblings, pets, and whatever else life threw our way.

We played around with the concept of our cover, looking to create something simple and functional. After a lot of trial and error, we arrived at a design that combines style and safety. Then the fun began as we shopped around for fleece prints that we wanted to feature in our shop. Every season our selection grows a little more.

Additional policies and FAQs
Q: Can I see my baby while he is protected from the elements?
A: Yes. One of our favorite features is that even as your baby is zipped into his car seat cover, you can still see his face. Unlike canopy-style covers, this allows your baby to stay bundled while also staying visible to you.

Q: Do I need to remove the cover to get my baby in or out of her car seat?
A: No. The zipper allows you to easily get your baby in and out without having to remove the cover from the car seat.

Q: How difficult is it to attach to the car seat, or take it off?
A: Each cover has elastic sewn into the outer edge, making it simple to stretch out around the edge of the car seat.

Q: Will it fit my baby's car seat?
A: Our covers fit most standard-size, rear-facing infant car seats.

Q: How securely will the cover fit my car seat?
A: Unlike a blanket, our cover secures around the edge of the car seat with elastic; it will stay on your baby's car seat as you carry it around, load and unload it into your vehicle, etc. No more blankets lost in the grocery store!

Q: Does the head flap secure down?
A: No. We have purposefully designed our Infant Car Seat Cover with your child's safety in mind, and because of this we do not use velcro, snaps, or any other method to secure the head flap down over the baby's face. The head flap is designed to be briefly laid down, with adult supervision, to protect from incremental weather.

Q: Will my baby get too warm / stay warm enough?
A: Our covers are made of a double layer of standard-thickness fleece. In moderate to cold weather, they work well as a shield from the elements while not overheating the baby. We live in the western half of Washington state, where the weather stays moderate most of the year; we generally use our cover for about 9-10 months out of the year to provide protection from the rain and the chill. For extra warmth when it's really chilly, we can slip a receiving blanket over our babies' feet inside the cover and then zip the cover up around it.

Q: Can I use my cover with the built-in canopy on the car seat?
A: For most car seat models, you can choose to keep the canopy folded down and tucked inside the cover (as shown in most of our photos), or you can unfold the canopy out over the cover.

Q: Can I wash my cover?
A: Yes. Each cover can be washed in the washing machine, although we suggest hand washing in cold water to keep the fleece from pilling and maintain the proper shape. Hang dry.

Q: Will I receive the cover in the picture?
A: The fabric placement of the fleece on your cover may not be identical to the picture on the listing. We take great pains to make sure that each cover's fabric placement is pleasing to the eye - that it is something that we'd want to use for our little ones.
