Multi-purpose shopping cart seat cover

Julia took the problem of crufty shopping carts into her own hands:

The one thing I can't live without is my shopping cart cover. I modified a pattern that I found in my local sewing shop and it now goes every where with me. I never liked the idea of touching all those nasty germs on the shopping cart handles. I also have been know to use mine as a play mat, an extra blanket for cold days and a diaper pad. Who knew that something so simple could be so useful! Here is the one I make and now sell to bring income into my very busy house!
