Vroom Vroom!

This is a project that I'd call "simply providential" (recently watched Anne of Green Gables with my girl, hee hee).

I love being a design tester for Lynnie Pinnie! When new designs appear in my inbox my head starts swimming with ideas. As soon as I saw this Cars on the Road design, I couldn't wait to check my flannel stash, I was just sure I had something that coordinated beautifully! (It had been sitting there since 2006 waiting for this day.) At about the same time I learned that my expectant nephew was going to be given two middle names, so I was already brainstorming ways to use four initials. And as an extra bonus, my maiden name is Carr. :)
A perfect project was born!!
 I used the 6x10 size and put it in the corner of the light blue cotton print. Dashiell helped me pick the fabric scraps from my stash to match the flannel--3 of the 4 already had HNBL on them! Woo-hoo! To add his initials, I used the Appliance Font from Jolson's Tiny Fonts set. I'm so pleased how this turned out!!

Prior to making the blanket, I tested the 4x4 version of the design on a tote bag. It only has 3 vehicles, which was perfect for monogramming for my son's friend, filling with Hot Wheels, and taking to a birthday party. :)

I really like that! What a cute design. And the fabric you picked to coordinate is perfect!
