Feeling Black & White

I bought this fabric the same day I bought six other black and white pieces.  Something about winter makes me love black and white.  I also love the contrast of it on a car seat blanket.  So classy and graphic.

A Very Riley Blake Christmas

Yes, I actually cuddled up with this fabric before I made my kids' pillow cases out of it. There's something so festive about Christmas flannel! I hope someone is as festive as I am and buys this for their little baby bean's car seat. So cozy! Oh, and there's two to choose from. Enjoy!

Lime Green and Lavender

I can't get enough of these colors. I'm on a binge. I loved this fabric at Material Girls the other day, and just had to buy it and make this with it. Go buy it in our shop!
 Why does this one remind me of a Dr. Seuss flower? Anyone else?

This fabric SPEAKS to me!  I'm almost finished making a table topper with it, too.  The colors are season-less and fantastic.  I'm not going to put it in the shop until after our boutique next Saturday.   
 If you're in the Utah County area, please visit The Quilting Cottage at 35 S. 100 E. in American Fork on Saturday, October 15th. 

We'll have little girl skirts, car seat canopies, quilts, and everything else we've been working on for the last several months.  If you love something you've seen in the shop, better get it now if you can't make it to the boutique.

My three-year-old son is fascinated with "heh-coters." He was very sad when he saw this fabric and it wasn't for him. Someone please buy this so I don't have to keep explaining to him why he can't have it. Buy it now!

Alphabet Zoo and Sari Blooms

I got the name of the Riley Blake fabric I used wrong when I put this in the shop.  I'm not going to change it, though, because it's Alphabet Soup Girl and I don't think this is "girl" fabric.  Ha!  I'm in charge. :)

Amy Butler's new-ish fabric, Soul Blossoms, is kind of a mystery to me.  I love some of it and I feel nothing about some of it.  These two fabrics are some that I love, but didn't know what to do with.  Cutting it too much (for a quilt) seemed sacrilegious to me, so a car seat blanket is perfect.

Ahoy Thar Matey! Pirates Car Seat Canopy

I had to buy Riley Blake's new Pirates line and make a car seat blanket/canopy from it. It turned out darling!

Now, someone has to have this, so go to The Butterfly Net's Shop and buy it!

Sock Monkeys!

I think Nicole and I are going bananas with our SIX kids this week. We both made car seat canopies with monkeys this week. (How did that happen, by the way? Six kids?! Remember when we thought we'd never have children?) 

Eek! I love that I positioned the monkey right in the middle of the handle. It makes it appear as though the monkey is riding the handle. Bahaha!

Hullabaloo and Barrel of Monkeys

Nicole adopted twins just four months ago, right? You'd never know with how she can still crank out a car seat blanket (or two) just for fun. Here are her latest creations, for sale now in our shop, The Butterfly Net.

Ty Pennington Fabric?!

While I was at Material Girls last month, I noticed a darling line of fabric. I looked at the edge of the bolt for the designer, and noticed it was Ty Pennington. What?! It's great! Here's my first project with it. Darling for a boy car seat canopy, no? Buy it in The Butterfly Net on Etsy's shop.

Amy Butler is Green With Envy

So one of my favorite places to get fabric, Material Girls Quilts, had a sale for St. Patrick's Day. 
Everything with a green background was on sale. Bonus! 
Oh, and I love Amy Butler prints. Always.
Buy this now in our shop

I Go Fandango

I fell in love with Kate Spain's line Fandango. I had to buy enough to make four (you read that right, FOUR) car seat blankets/canopies. I loved how they all turned out! One each in cream, pink, green, and blue. Buy one in our shop, The Butterfly Net.

Remember, our car seat canopies have elastic to tuck in behind the visor. A snug and perfect fit every time! Plus, we never buy in bulk or mass-produce. Each canopy is hand-made in a smoke-free and pet-free home.
