I wanted to finish one more car seat blanket this year and this was the perfect one to end on. As soon as I noticed the damask on this perfect pink fabric was sparkly, I bought it. I had no plan - nothing for the under side. It didn't matter. It is so princess-y! My little girl wants to touch it and be near it.
Of course it's still just normal fabric and you can wash it like any other cotton. The other side is a pink stripe minky that I've had for a while. Having one side be so soft and the other side so beautiful makes the whole thing very delicious.

Happy New Year!

Owls Car Seat Blanket

When I was at the fabric store, I was SURE this combo was for a boy. The more I worked on it, the more I thought it was pretty gender neutral. Owls are gender neutral, right? Whatever. :)

Here Come The Boys

Even though I have two really cute girl car seat blankets to make (one has sparkles - I can't stand it!), I'm still keeping with my goal of making more boy blankets.

First, some of Heather Bailey's new fabric in boy colors. Yes, yellow is a boy color. I didn't used to think so, but starting now, it is.
Besides being so cute and happy, it's also reversible:

I also did a car seat cover with alphabet fabric. Just think! If you have an older brother/sister they can learn their ABC's looking at your new baby's car seat blanket! Win-win.

Oh yeah, and it's reversible, too.

Go check out the shop before someone else buys up these cute babies! We don't sell babies - I was talking about the car seat blankets.

Boys and Girl

I've been pretty good about making boy car seat blankets lately. And yes, I'm counting a gender-neutral one.

First, an obviously male-inspired car seat blanket:

And here is an extreme close-up of a Moda Dottie in Spring Green with Ivory Dot Minky. What a lofty title:And because I couldn't help myself, I made one for a girl with a couple of Heather Bailey's new fabrics. I had them cut the plastic off these bolts so that I could get to the fabric. That's right - I didn't wait until they were up on the shelf like a nice person would have done. How embarrassing:

Nellie's Floral Car Seat Blanket

After finishing this car seat blanket I was bitter for about five seconds that I am having a boy and not a girl. I want this one for myself! I think it's so sweet. The pattern reminds me of my sweet Grandma Nellie - soft pinks and floral, and very feminine. Somebody please buy this one before I get too sad that I cannot put this one on my own car seat. :)

Snow Flower

I love Free Spirit's line of Snow Flower. It's so beautiful! And the colors are just so sweet. I really enjoyed making this reversible car seat blanket. It turned out so darling!

Michael Miller Damask for Telicia

I loved doing this custom car seat blanket! I love Michael Miller's fabric, and I love damask. Oh, and who can go wrong with chocolate brown dot minky? I am in love. You?

Thanks, Telicia!

More Boy Stuff

I recently took a trip to the fabric store and only bought fabric for boy car seat blankets. It was hard. Not because I don't like boy colors or boys in general, there is just not much to choose from. What the heck, fabric designers? Throw me a bone.

So I bought some bug fabric I've used before and paired it with a cool blue flannel:

(My back drop for the next few months will be my dirty patio. Enjoy.)

Then I found this awesome fabric for someone who is having a real boy and needs the world to know it.

How fun is that?! Both sides of that one are flannel - nice and soft. If you're into that. :)
