(The kangaroos are my favorite part of this fabric.)  We're still plugging away at the sewing machines to get ready for our Artisan Fair this weekend.  If you live anywhere near Bountiful, Utah, please come see us!  We'll have all the car seat blankets in our shop available (no shipping costs!) for purchase.  These are very high quality car seat blankets - and yet we aren't charging as much as every other shop we've seen. 

Hope we see you soon!

Can't Resist the Love

I've been jonesing for more of Amy Butler's "Love" fabric.  I really wanted that navy blue bouquet stuff, but I couldn't find it.  I did find the same fabric in plum, which is just as good.  This car seat blanket is one that I would totally use if I had a baby girl right now.

I mixed "Love" with some Riley Blake fabric even though the blues weren't a perfect match.  Doesn't it remind you of dandelions?

Vintage Alphabet

I love the vintage alphabet on this fabric.  Obviously, I guess, since I made one in another color a few months ago.  Wouldn't the two of them together be perfect for twins?  And they're gender neutral.  Right?

Daisies Are Back!

Several months ago I found Michael Miller's fabric with the adorable daisies on it and I bought it in two colors.  It was that cute.  Then I went to a really great quilt shop that is too far away and found a version of that fabric with GIANT flowers on it in navy and yellow.  Irresistible!  Of course all of those car seat blankets have been purchased, but I recently found the navy and yellow in the small version of the daisies.  I love navy blue and yellow together!

More Animals

I think I've mentioned a few hundred times that boy fabric is kind of hard to come by.  I've had this animal print for ages and I didn't like the underside fabric I bought with it.  Since we've got an Artisan Fair coming up, I decided to just make everything I have fabric for.  I found a blue dot that I bought for another reason, also a long time ago, and now these two fabrics are together at last!

The fabric I bought to go with this originally is orange with orange-er dots.  It hurt my eyes when I put them together.  The store must have been dark.

Cute classic toys all over a blue background - hooray!  I love that the background also has jacks (jax?).

We already had a car seat blanket with Riley Blake's "Rainy Day" fabric, but who is resisting those adorable umbrellas?!  I had to make one in green, too.

Plaid and Flowers

I'm obsessed with plaid.  I've seen a few really cool ones in the fabric stores lately.  Finally!  I made this car seat blanket reversible just in case someone else is as obsessed with plaid as I am.

And the other side:

The fabric is Riley Blake's "Felicity."  Remember that show?!  I loved that show.  Until they had that weird flashback/alternative universe ending thing.  What were we talking about?

A Custom Order

I've had neighbors come to my home and "shop" for a car seat blanket many times and they usually find one they like.  Last week a friend couldn't find the perfect one in our inventory, so she went to the fabric store herself and brought fabric back to me.  She wanted a car seat cover that was minky on the inside, see.  When this friend had her twins more than a year ago, we gave her two car seat blankets and they both had minky on the under-side.  When the twins got to be too big for the little car seat, this friend put the car seat cover, minky side up, in their swings.  The elastic on the end held the blanket in place and the minky put the babies to sleep every time.  Genius!

Manly Tractors

Seriously - this is the manliest fabric ever!  Tractors, trucks, dirt (pictured, not actual).  And the underside is plaid.  And orange!  What could be more fun for a boy?
