Sew & Tell Friday: Car Seat Covers & Toile Lone Star

Happy Sew & Tell Friday! My favorite day.

I felt bad that I didn't get my second lone star all the way finished, but I started it late Saturday night and I have a life. Sort of. And I made two car seat covers this week. As a weasel-y little punk I knew used to say, "I feel totally justified." (He was not. I am.)

So! A boy and a girl car seat cover:
I really like both of them. I needed a reason to use that gray damask - I think it's so sweet, but gray for a baby? I wasn't sure. Anyway, both of them are in my etsy shop, if you care to take a closer look. :)

Here is my Toile Lone Star:
I used the same process as I did for my Americana Lone Star, so I thought I'd skip that this time. I loved how that blue and white toile looked with the bright red. It's kind of romantic, don't you think? The back is all ready to go, I just need to do all the stuff. You know how it is.

I love the whale carseat cover! Forgive my ignorance, but is toile the type of fabric or the design or the pattern or what? In any case, it's really beautiful. Nice work!
