Cowboy Car Seat Blankie

I fell in love with this Alexander Henry "Tumbleweed Tots" fabric when I saw it in my local quilt shop. I knew as soon as I saw it that the large print would be perfect for a car seat blankie. I backed it with a very soft bumpy minkee, but I'm not sure I love the bias striped binding. I think a plaid or bandanna print might have looked more "cowboyish", but maybe a candy cane stripe is better for a little cowboy who is due on Christmas anyway!

I think it is just adorable. What a lucky little cowboy to get that!

That "blankie" looks so warm and cuddly, perfect for that wonderful little cowboy :>)!! You are a very creative gal! Oh and by the way I like the bias binding...it gives it *your* creative touch!

Hia Susan I think the candy cane is perfect for a Christmas baby. It picks up the cowboy shirt colour very nicely. :-)

There are days when I could do with a snuggly like that - it's cold here at the mo when the wind blows.
