It is not safe and voids the warranty of your car seat to use an aftermarket product(cover) on it.

Just curious, but why would the cloth covering affect the actual safety of the car seat? I'm not biased either way, just curious. I've seen some really cute covers

Hoping someone with more knowledge will chime in but beyond voiding the warranty on the seat I have heard something about manufactured seat covers being flame retardant. Of course you would hope to never have a car fire, but why risk it.

This is the answer Graco gave me.

Thank you for contacting Graco regarding aftermarket fabric for a car seat. The car seat is designed to protect little ones should you be in an accident. Car seats are crash tested for all aspects of the seat. Changing to none tested fabric could possibly compromise the safety of the seat and is not recommended.

I love the car seat, but even the actual Graco replacement covers I can buy are cold and icky. I have 2 1/2yds of solid woven cotton and 1 1/2yds of Minky already in a Priority package ready to go somewhere, LOL. The Mama I wanted to use is booked through Mid-April, and I am due late March-08 April. I have my Chicco as a back up, but would love to get this other car seat ready to go as well. Does anyone know of anyone that makes the REAL covers, NOT just the slipcovers and can take a SYOF (send your own fabric) custom order?
aftermarket covers are not safe

I do have a black and red pipping one that I can sell you...need to check and see what model it is tho.
