Pooches and Pickups - Finally revealed and a Giveaway!

Let me start by apologizing. I didn't mean to torture you with the sneaky peekies! But at long last I can finally share my newest line for Robert Kaufman! Pooches and Pickups is headed out to the sales force today so if you have a store, call your rep and place your order. The fabric will start shipping to stores during April so start planning your sewing projects now. I'm also working on a few projects with the fabric that I'll be sharing over the next few weeks.
Pooches and Pickups is made up of 3 patterns: Big Trucks, Small Trucks and Pooches. It comes in two color stories: Spring (blue and green) and Summer (red and ochre).



A friend of mine came over a few weekend ago to help me snap some pictures of everything and we giggled and gabbed while drinking coffee and setting everything up. Boat loads (or should I say truck loads) of fun! I didn't even plan out that I was wearing my Pooches and Pickups PJ shorts for our photoshoot. And yes, I was still in my PJs for the photoshoot. And yes, that's an old boxspring on my wall...I just adore all the shapes and patterns it makes and turns out its a fabulous prop. :)


Now, for the disclaimer... Do as I say, not as I design. Huh you say? Lemme explain...I designed this fabric as a little tribute to my sweet Clara dog. (It's been a year since she passed away.) And that girl LOVED, LOVED, LOVED riding in my car. Ears flapping and drool flying. But I drive a station wagon (sassy huh?) which frankly didn't make for very cute fabric. So insert vintage pickup truck in place of wagon and I was off to the races. The design became exponentially cuter with the pooch in the back, so into the bed of the truck the pooches went. But it's pretty dangerous for pooches to ride in the back of truck, ya know? So you see my dilema. Do as I say and not as I design. Keep your pooches safe inside your cars or trucks. :)
Now for the free fabric! I'm giving away two FQ packs of Pooches and Pickups to two lucky winners. You know the drill...Leave a comment here on the blog and tell me what you'd like to make (or tell me about your pooch!). I'll use the random number generator to select 2 winners this coming Saturday evening, 4/16/11 at roughly 6pm CT. Good luck and I hope you love the fabric!

I looove this fabric. It makes me happy just to look at it. I would make two quilts for my little boys (or strip pillowcases) to remind them of Tucker. A big black lab that we had to leave behind when we moved due to moving into an apartment. My boys are 2 & 3 and loved that dog. Half the time I couldn't tell who was chasing who as they chased each other around the island in the kitchen.

Leigh said...

Oh so cute! I would make somethings for my four nephews-- Pillowcases are a great idea! Or work them into lap quilts... So many possibilities!

Meri said...

Fab.u.lous! My two pooches, Moose and Rowdy are brother and sister and have free reign on our farm. They are not fond of riding around...they prefer to run, so no worries there!
Thanks for a chance to win some yummy fabric!

Shruti said...

Wow... Beautiful line... I'd love to make something for my nephew... I'm making quilts for all my nephews and one niece for a upcoming family gathering... This could sure help me with that one!
Cheers from India

Vicki @ DottyJane said...

This is the cutest fabric I've seen lately! Thanks for the chance to win:)
We lost one of our pooches last November. He was terrified to ride in the car, but our other one loves to go even if it's just in the driveway!

Lindsay said...

Very cute! I would make a baby quilt for the newest member of the family, Cayden :)

Barb said...

Love your new fabric. I'm so excited for a great print for boys! My son would love something made from this fabric...maybe a pillow for his bed?

Alison said...

You are so stinkin' creative its ridiculous! love the box springs pics and of course, the new fabric!

Dianne said...

I don't have a pooch, but I have 2 boys under 5...do they count?! Love the fabric...it's so cute!

Jenny said...

Destined for quilts in my house! ohhh, we had the sweetest mutt growing up...Maggie May...yep, after the rod stewart song...she was such a great dog.

ellesquare said...

Aww - what a nice story. My puggy loves riding shotgun.

I come from a long LONG line of all-daughter families, and last week my cousin Lisa and her husband brought the very first boy into the mix. We're head over heels, but I'm lost having never sewn anything for a boy. Your fabrics are releasing at just the right time!

Congrats on your new line!

ninjadesigns said...

i don't have a dog, i have a cat, but my parents have 3 massive siberian huskies! the oldest is 2 years and the youngest is about 6 months, so their backyard is like a giant puppy playground. i can't wait to see them all blow their coats when the weather starts to get warm (i know i know, it should be warm already. but we've got snow in the forecast again today).

Elizabeth said...

Love this line! When I was little we (me, my brother, and the dog)loved nothing more than to jump in the back of my dad's truck and go for a ride. It gives me a heart attack to think about it now, but at the time it was the coolest thing ever!

Regan said...

now seriously..you are KILLING me..LOVE it all!

The truck reminds me of my uncle's Studebaker he used to race

Four dogs and one quilter said...

I would make the cutest dog bed, then my furry BFF wouldn't sleep in my scrap basket!

Sonia B said...

So cute! These would make an adorable little boy quilt. Thanks for the chance!

Shannon said...

We have two dogs, both are rescues. They are complete opposites in almost every way but they both love riding in the car!! (We love it too because they're always on their best behavior!)

9patchnurse said...

Well! You did torture us.... but I sure forgive you since that fabric is so darn cute! Love the pickups. I have a few boy quilts to make and this is the perfect fabric.

Kelly said...

i have one dog, and he was my baby before i had babies! he's an italian greyhound named watley. :)

Anessa said...

What a fun line of fabric. I am thinking it would make a great little boy quilt. or maybe put a little into my big mans quilt I plan to make him.

Bailey said...

Love the pickups! I'd definitely contribute this to my quilt groups stash for Project Linus charity quilts...it would be perfect for little boys!

Flying Blind... said...

Well I don't have a pooch, so this would be as near as I get, and I don't have a pick-up either!

I think the men in my life, hubby & son deserve something to counteract all the pink the twins are filling the house with!!

Thanks for the opportunity x

Sequana said...

What a nice thot for Clara; if I win, I'll be thinking about her each time I use it.

What I'd do with it? Make the cutest quilt ever for one of my grandsons.

All With LOVE said...

Pretty darn cute !!! Id make a quilt or a tee shirt for my 6 year old nephew. He just got his own pooch!

Stephanie C. said...

I'd love to make a quilt for my 2 year old. He loves trucks and our puggle Bella!

Xandi said...

I do love it, and thanks for the disclaimer. I have two Golden Retrievers that ride in the back seat of my car. They each think that they deserve the entire back seat for themselves.

Debra said...

I love love love this fabric. My dog was a constant in my life and I still miss him. Thanks for the chance!

Celeste said...

This fabric is great! It's nice to see such cute boy fabric. I have 2 friends having baby boys soon, so I'd make quilts for them.

Wendy P said...

I'll have to get some yardage of these, because right away I wanted to make more boxers for my husband. He's building us a 54 Chevy truck (total restoration) and our dogs will be riding in the bed someday when it is done.

If I got the fqs, I'd have to make another little quilt for his helper, our 2 yr old grandson, Tyler.

Victoria said...

I will make quilts for each of my precious dogs' beds!

Laurie said...

Wow, so cute - another great collection. I would probably make some baby pants or bibs for my son.

DianeY said...

I don't have a pooch or a pickup, but love the fabric and the colors. Good job!

Amber said...

So fun! I have a new baby boy. I'm thinking pants and a matching quilt for floor time. Maybe a bucket hat...

Anonymous said...

My youngest boy, Aidan, is absolutely consumed by both trucks and dogs. This would make the cutest carrying bag for his obsessions!

Kim O. said...

Oohhh!!! Lunch bags for all!! These are so cute!

tammikins said...

So much fun! I want a pooch and a pickup, but sadly have neither so fabric will have to do!

Leila said...

Such fun fabric Laurie, I love it!
I'm declaring the summer of 2011 dressmaking summer, so I'd have to attempt a pair of shorts out of pooches and trucks for my little boy :-)

EG said...

Oh my goodness, it was love at first sight for me and this fabric (well, I don't know how the fabric feels). I'd do a quilt, for sure.

Claire said...

Pet beds, clearly! (: Super cute fabric, I'm excited to finally see it!

quiltilicious said...

I don't own a pooch or a pickup but I'd definitely like to own some of this fabric to make a vibrant quilt!

Vickie E said...

super cute fabric. I'd likely make a quilt or a bib for my nephew...that is to be born any day now. My sister is overdue actually...

Peach Rainbow said...

I think they'd make a lovely baby quilt for a boy - Thanks for the chance!

Julie in WA said...

I am originally from small town Minnesota, where nearly everyone owns a pickup. When farmers came to town for coffee at the local cafe, the dogs came too, yippin' and a yappin' to each other, catching up on the latest gossip. Yep, mid-mornin' was a noisy time to take a trip down Main Street!

Love the fabric and the memories it evokes!

~Michelle~ said...

I'd probably hang onto the fabrics until I have another friend preggo with a boy (they've all been girls lately) - the primary colors are wonderful!

snips said...

Two of my son's favourite things...trucks and dogs!
Love these! Especially the spring colourway, definitely seeing s stroller quilt for my little guy!

Melissa said...

Oh my gosh! Laurie! I think this is my favorite line, yet! :o) You always design SUCH adorable fabrics.
I will be buying some to make something for my sweet dad. He loves (and has a couple) restored Chevy trucks, and loves (and has a couple) pooches. It's SO hard to find good fabric for my dad, and this is PPPPPEEEEERRRRRFFFEEECCCCTTTT!!!!
Thanks, Laurie! I love it. :o)

Katie B. said...

So cute! My old yellow lab sleeps in the bed with my 3-year-old son, so I'd definitely make them a quilt!

Hannah said...

I'd love to make a baby boy quilt with these adorable fabrics. Thanks for sharing!

Shelly said...

I love your fabric. I love dogs and know just what I would do with the fabric. Way to go!

Lindsay Conner said...

Cute fabric! I'd love to make a kids quilt out of this. :) Also linked the giveaway on my blog at http://www.craftbuds.com/giveaway-roundup/

Jen B. said...

I would embellish my son's clothes and make a bag for him. He's going to love this line!

MG said...

I'd make a quilt for my nephew--he loves dogs and trucks.

Zibu said...

I might have a hard time actually cutting into these so I can't say what I'd make. I did have the cutest dachshund growing up. She used to sulk when my dad returned from business trips. She would be so excited to hear his car and footsteps but as soon as he came in the house, she would go sit under the piano bench and very deliberately turn her back to the room. It always took at least ten minutes of cajoling and apologising to get her to come out and say hi to him!

Anonymous said...

Hello Laurie,

Cushions and covers for my furry inmates: Miss, Lipton, Petit Coeur and Chat (cat in French) and for me a dashing messenger bag to show off anywhere, here in Switzerland.

Tout est si joli, bravo Laurie !

Greetings

Maria

Ruth said...

awww, i love it! i'd totally make a blanket that i could share with my snuggly westie, louie. :)

roger said...

so fun! even the name evokes a smile! Our dog Izzi thinks she needs to ride to the post office with us! Barbi

The Rx quilter said...

What an awesome follow up to Tufted Tweeds...I have my fats from that..I just can't cut into them yet! I have two Vizsla's, Tara and her baby Jake. We lost a Dalmatian to kidney stones about 14 years ago...still remember the sadness when he was gone. Lisa in Texas

AnneMarie said...

Another great collection Laurie! I have 2 boys (4 and 20 mo.) - I'd love to make a quilt for them as you can't get more BOY than pooches and pickups!

missbossypants said...

I LOVE Pooches and Pickups! We have a family dog, who is a 12 year old Jack Russel. I've had her since before I met my husband and had kids, so the dog and I have some history and a great bond. I agree that it is unsafe for a dog to be in the back of a truck, but sometimes those big dogs just look so happy going for a ride in the wind! Thanks for the chance to win!

WandaFish said...

Oh, these are even better than I thought they would be - so much fun!!
I've got a few baby quilts that I need to make, but I'd also like to use these for some cute shorts. Thanks for the chance in the giveaway :)

Kelly O. said...

this has got to be the best "little boy" fabric EVER!! (although I do think 32 year old women will also love it!)

my son would LOVE a quilt out of this!!!!!

We have a 7yr old boxerxlab and she's lovely. Her name is Shelby and she was our baby before we had babies. We brought her home at 5 lbs and now she is a whopping 74 lbs!! she adores our kids and is a grand protector.
She has lovely sad eyes, loves a good scratch and tucks in her upper lip like Elvis!
she's a keeper :)

Sarah Craig said...

My two pooches (a border collie and a chocolate lab) tell me that I should make them bandannas if I win the fabric. Phooey on them! Much too cute to let them muck it up in the yard!! But my daughter is in the process of adopting a child from Ethiopia, and this would make such a cute little boy quilt (if it's a boy!)

Dan R said...

great fabric! i'd love to use it in a quilt.

Kathryn said...

This would be perfect for a quilt for my brother and sister-in-law. They have 5 dogs and a pickup truck. Needless to say, they love dogs. Wonderful design, and I'd love to win. Kathie L in Allentown

The Hungry Crafter said...

Laurie, I LOVE this line! It is fantastic! Wouldn't this make a great dog bed? And he could dream of riding around in a pickup all evening :)

Poppyprint said...

Nice buns in your boxers! I have a dog with legs short enough that he wouldn't be able to see over the box of a pick up...he's an obnoxious miniature dachshund named Flynn. If you ever came to my front door, you'd swear there was a killer doberman behind it, then you'd bust up laughing when you saw all 12 lbs of terror barking at you. We love doxies for their personality....we just weren't counting on quite so much of it! Thanks for sharing your fun fabric!

Tina @ Squirrel Acorns said...

I love the pickups! And the yellow dogs look like my golden retrievers - an old-man red colored one named Magnus and a big, fluffy, light-colored one named Hampshire. The fluffy one does well with the stereotypes typical of blonds.

Corine said...

I would make a sportsbag for my 5-year old.
I especially love the truck fabric!

Thanks for the chance to win some fq's!

-Corine

AMH said...

I LOVE these fabrics! :D I am really into baby quilts these days, and I would love to make one for my pup, Mieko, who prefers to sleep under a blanket. Since he's black and white, he would look great against these graphic prints.

Karen said...

My 5 year old son saw this page open and said 'wicked! can i have a quilt in that mum?' so there's our answer, he loves anything with an engine and we have a lovely rescue dog BUSTER (Lurcher/Wiemeraner cross) who you can see here: http://craftsfromkaren.blogspot.com/search/label/Buster

Lara said...

Cricket was our family dog. He was the most reliable time keeper I've ever met. Every afternoon at 3.15 he'd move to the front door to watch for the paper boy. Then he'd bark to let us know when the paper was delivered... out he'd run, and bring it in. For a wee biscuit of course :) He was quite disgruntled when Mum and Dad stopped getting the paper delivered. He was our best friend for 18 years.

Thanks for the chance to win some FQ's. Is this fabric going to be available in a laminate? It would make the cutest wee raincoats.

Chelsea said...

Such cute fabric! My girl Beatrice is really hoping we'll buy a truck so she can ride in the back with the wind in her nose. But seeing as how she keeps ringing up giant vet bills, I think we're stuck with our 2 door hatch back!

Kelly said...

Would LOVE to win some of this. My husband is totally obsessed with labs. I want to say I'd use it for a baby quilt, but it might end up as a quilt for our own sweet Lab....

webmailaddress2 said...

Would make a great quilt!

Mary Grace McNamara said...

a baby quilt or jammies for my son! My pooch is no longer with us, but she lasted 11 years and she was a wonderful dog!

MGM

Isisjem said...

I love this in both colourways. I don't know exactly the design but I think I'd make a tote bag and a small zippy bag or two to go inside it.

Annette said...

Love your fabric! Charlie, our black lab, knows when my husband puts on his jeans that it is Saturday morning and time to go riding in the pick up!! He won't let him out of his sight for fear that he'll miss his chance to go for a ride. I may just have to make him a new dog bed out of this fabric!

Kate (KnitsInClass) said...

Happy, fun fabric! Bound to make anything look great - very much reminds me of my black lab Newman, who adores car rides. He's my best co-pilot!

Johanne said...

Lovely! I would make a lap quilt for my son, have made one for the rest of the family, but have not found the right fabric for his yet. This would suit perfectly!

hollykmichels said...

My two favorite things: pickups and pooches! Thanks for the chance to win. Beautiful fabric!

Lx - my mr lugs said...

Wow I love the fabric and the fact that it's about you and your pooch "Clara" Such a sweet and beautiful idea, in memory for her :) My little boy Max would totally love the fabric as he is totally nuts about pickup trucks and dogs... well basically anything with four wheels or legs really but he would love it! I'm thinking duvet cover or maybe pillows that he can drag around with him :)

Tong said...

i love the prints so much! two of my coworkers are expecting baby boys this summer, so i'd love to make some receiving blankets and matching bibs and wash cloths for them!

Debbie Littlejohn said...

The dogs remind me of my black lab that I'm sure would have enjoyed a ride in a pickup!

Katrina said...

A cute patchworky pillowcase for my son would be soo nice with these fabrics!

Marcia W. said...

This cute fabric might find it's way into a baby quilt for a new grandniece/nephew due this summer. The fabric is so cute. Thanks for the fun giveaway.

Bek said...

oooo i would definately love to make something for my kids! We had a golden lab growing up and just before Christmas she had to be put down because she was so old (16!!)...i keep her tag and photo hanging in my sewing room so i can always remember all the fun we had!

JuneBug said...

This line is adorable! I too had a lovely black pooch who loved to ride... I would for sure make a variety of things with the fabric including but not limited to pillow, quilt, tote/diaper bag, and baby pants.

Lee said...

Such happy fabric - I would make my godson a cute quilt with this! thanks
butler83ataoldotcom

highwaycottage said...

Oh, wow, so cute !!! I would make the wee boy a backpack or messenger bag as his has just broke. Then some zip up pouches.

Marg M said...

My pooch is a long haired white westie maltese cross with a very happy disposition as long as I walk him daily. If I don't the cushions are off the couch day one, day 2 the stuffing is out of the oldest one so cute material for a new cushion would be a hoot

Nicole said...

What would we do without our dogs?... My beagle curls up on his cushion in the sewing room whenever I am in there and my chihuahua would rather sit on my lap at the machine! Life is better with a dog around. Love your fabric....cute, cute, cute!

Allison said...

I will tell you about my pooch. He is very bad and certainly does not deserve for me to make him anything from this fabric. My two little boys are equally as mischevious though and they probably don't deserve it either. Hmmm. Perhaps I could make a harness that would fit all three of them at once.

Crimson Lily said...

I can't wait to get this fabric. I want to make a quilt for my 6 year old son. Also, we have a 9 month old, 80 lb, lab/bulldog mix, so this would be perfect!

natalie christensen said...

I would love to make the quilt on oh! Fransons blog. Thanks for the giveaway!

Jessica said...

I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to win this. I can just see some awesome baby boy items made from this. I'm seeing cute bedding, blankets, pants, shirts, ANYTHING! It is just TOO CUTE!

Joanna said...

I think the puppies are cute. I would make a baby quilt.

Lisa said...

Supercute! My Golden Retriever, Tucker, would never even think of getting into the back of a truck. Ha! He sits gracefully inside the car, on the back seat, allowing the breeze to waft over him from the open window. Ummm, spoiled?

I'd love to use this fabric as a slipcover for one of his dog beds. :O)

ColleenaMareena said...

I love this great fabric! I have three boys, and they would love some cute little boy size button up shirts I think. That would be adorable!

When I first saw the opening picture, I thought, Oh no! Not in the bed of a truck! So THANK YOU so much for the warning! I worked as a vet tech at an emergency clinic for almost 5 years, and I BEG everyone to never, ever put their dog in the bed. Not even tied (that is dangerous too!). A great compromise if you have a truck with a small cab is a big plastic crate secured with a motorcycle ratchet tie-down! :)

Kate said...

The fabric is super cute Laurie! I would probably use the fabric for a cute baby boy quilt :)

VickiB said...

The cutest boy fabric ever! Our dogs will do nearly anything for a ride. We can barely put on shoes/boots because they are trying to help so that they can go quicker.

Angela D. said...

what cute fabric. I'd love to make a quilt for my godson.

H2Ogirl said...

These are lovely. I can't wait to use them in a project. I think I would make a wallet for my nephews and use some in a few blocks in their soon to be made quilt.

Debra said...

The fabric is adorable. I would probably make a bed quilt for my youngest grandson. They have relocated back here to Australia, much to my delight, after almost 10 years in the USA. Big smile here....I am so glad i stumbled on this...the fabric ranges are so so sweet...thank you for the chance at this giveaway x

Sally said...

I'm thinking baby shorts and bibs for my boy and a new tote for me - another fabulous design :-)

Cat said...

My little man is off to his first camp in June and I'd love to rustle him up a wash kit bag in your gorgeous fabric.

Beth said...

I love the fabric! We have five dogs: a mama and her babies. The mama dog was adopted from a shelter, and turned out to be pregant...eight years later, we couldn't be happier with our big family. :) Two of our dogs look like the pooch on your fabric, which would make winning an especial delight. Thanks for the chance.

elisa.b said...

I would like to try and sew something for my best friend's new baby, perhaps some cute diaper covers or incorporate the fabric into a play mat.
I don't have a dog but have wanted one for ages and ages. I'm hoping to get one next year once I'm done with graduate school and live somewhere dog friendly. :)

Lisa said...

I just received my HUGE order from your etsy store in the post today and it is just so BEAUTIFUL. I love it! It would be greedy of me to enter your competition so if am the lucky one, can you please redraw.

Patchwork and Play said...

Such cute fabric! My adorable Holly was a beagle, always running with her nose to the ground following scents on fantastic adventures! Thanks for the giveaway!

nutterbug said...

Oooo, I'd love to make a quilt for one of my nephews! This solves the dilema of what boyish fabric to use :)

taggartjade said...

Hello,

I love your work, what a kind giveaway. I would make little canvases for my friends house that she is decorating at the moment, i think she'd love them (i'd keep sneaky samples for me though) maybe make some words in my sketch book!

x

nicole / Twitter: BTHM1 said...

ooo- I'm thinking a tiered twirl dress for my daughter- she loves her puppy and papa truck just about the same!

Erin said...

Nice work again! I would like to make some summer napkins to take picnicking.

PamOFlynn said...

Gorgeous prints again! I would love to make a new bed for my Irish Setter/Chihuahua mix Brodie with some of this!!

Michelle T said...

My pooches also ride in my car....I've got a Westie and a Scottie...black & white! We call them The Travelling Dogs, they both love to feel the wind in their faces out the windows, and when they are tired they both squeeze up in that area behind the rear seat headrests and lay in the sun.
michelletripper(at)yahoo(dot)ca

Carolyn said...

Wonderful fabric. I have a grown son who is restoring a 57 red Chevy truck, so I would have to make something for him and his son, Arlo (who loves to dwive the twuck!)

TracyJane said...

Just found you via Print ande Pattern... Love love LOVE this fabric - it's so cute! Well for designing something that really made me smile and brightened up my luchtime.

I have a greyhound called Millie who loves to curl up in the boot of our car (we have a hatchback, so she's not shut in!). She hates the backseat and always tries to hide under the front seats, which isn't easy for a big dog! You'd never catch her with her head out of the window because she's a scaredy mutt :)

Pam said...

Wow, I love this fabric!!! My 3 year old grandsons room will soon be transformed into a big boy room. I would love to make him a quilt for his bed and storage baskets for his books and yes, cars and trucks using this fabric. We have a chocolate lab (Lucy) that loves, loves, loves, to ride with me in the car. My grandson has a big black dog named Maggie that he loves dearly. Did I mention that I am in love with this fabric? Sure hope I win!!!!

b78ayers said...

This fabric is SO fun, I just love it! And in a heartbeat I would make a quilt for Hubble, our year-old Coton de Tulear. He loves our bed quilt and I've been promising him one of his own and this fabric would be perfect! He is always up for a ride in the car and we could take his new quilt along. Thanks for the chance to win.

christy said...

this is perfect fabric to make a little boy quilt. I love the prints so much!!

MotherMotherOcean said...

Thank you for making something masculine!

The Chics said...

So cute! Thanks for the disclaimer- dogs in pick-up beds make me so nervous. I would certainly add this fabric to the quilt I am designing called "my favorite things" your Donkey in wellies is already going in there along with some other contemporary, more "adult" novelty fabrics (like Opal Owl by Tina Givens)
My Boston, Myles, and Frenchie Mix, Quinn, are my sewing room companions and love to "ride along!" They even know the sound of a deposit slip being torn out of the book means a ride to the bank and treats from the drive through! Thanks-

Lana said...

WowowowowoW! That looks just like my labs Jig and Buzz- the Saw brothers as they are lovingly known!!! I MUST HAVE this FABRIC!!!!! Love it! You did good girl!

Gwen said...

Just found your blog through Lucends and I love the fabric. I have 3 pugs (all rescues) and one 6 year old human boy. He would love something with this fabric. A chance to win is great.

Mary @ Bugglebee Handmade said...

I love these fabrics! They'd be so fun to make something for my son who loves vroom vrooms (cars) and woof woofs (dogs). I'd probably make him a messenger bag and some little drawstring tote bags.

RenegadeQuilter said...

Love the fabrics! They would make a great little boy's quilt. Thanks for the chance to win.

Amorette said...

great colors and great concept! we love our lab a lot, and she has been so great with our son! she has also been great for him- now he knows how to act around animals, and if he gets to pet them, he is very gentle and careful!

wendy said...

More great designs! How do you do it!? My Westie approves :)

Karen L R said...

We had a yellow Lab named Phoebe. We still miss her.

LOVE the pooches in pick ups. Would make a fine lap quilt to stow in our pick up...for picnics or around our shoulders while we watch the stars in the back of the truck.

Thanks for a chance at this generous give away!

Denny1600 said...

I LOVE this fabric! I'd probably make a pillow case or two for my husband. It will make us think of our Buddy dog who's in doggy heaven with your Clara.

Yummers! said...

My dog's name is Otter. He is a beagle and soooooo sweet. He loves pillows and would love one with dogs on it... he told me!

Liz said...

I would love to win some of this fabric so that I could make my dog a mat to hold his food and water bowls. The fabric is so cute!

Erin M. said...

No dog now, but I grew up with golden retrievers and think they are the best! Thanks for the giveaway.

dorothy said...

I love this fabric. I love dogs so much. I had an American Bulldog as my childhood pet and I miss her very much. I hope someday to get a dog when I have more space!

Bessiemae said...

Just adorable, I can't wait to add it to my stash. Gosh, I love your designs. :-)

twelfthzodiac said...

Aww..this fabric is even sweeter when you know how it came about :)
I know tons of little boys (& a couple of girls) who love anything puppies & trucks! I would probably make a couple little quilts, maybe one for my own playroom, where a cat will surely nap on it!

Becky said...

As always you have outdone yourself! How do you consistently top the last design? I love these fabrics.

Reminds me of our dear, departed 13 years now, Black Lab, Travellor, who loved to ride and GO!

Love this design, Laurie! No dog here, just cats and chickens...your next design inspirations?

euphoria said...

Laurie, you are too darn good! These are fantastical prints! I would whip out a little pouch blanket in no time with these bad boys!

Oh, so so cute!!!! I know my four year old grandson would love his grandma making him a pillowcase or some summer shorts! His little sister would say "me too, grandma!" And their soon to be three cousin would ooo and ah over the pooches as well, since she has a doggy. Grandma would be really busy sewing for the four grandkidlets! Over the years we had several dogs, Mercedes, Missy and Freckles who loved to take brief (safe) rides in the back of our pickups.

Oh Wow! I cannot wait to get a hold of these fabrics! I also drive a station wagon (love it) but my pooch, Olive the standard poodle, HATES to ride in cars. She gets car sick, poor baby. But we go on plenty of walks to make up for it. :-)

Margaret said...

Great fabric, love it! Would use for a boy quilt. I have a wonderful dog who is starting to get old (12 human years, sniff). My daughter calls Molly the dog her sister.

Char said...

I'd really like to make a quilt for my soon to be 3 year old great nephew.

Connie said...

Barbara C said...

Such cute fabric! I would make a quilt for a little boy I know.

Meg said...

I would absolutely LOVE to make a quilt for the newest addition to our family due in September. I 'm having strong feelings its going to be a boy!

Genevieve said...

I know just what I'll make, I have minke sitting here waiting for the right top fabric for a blanket for my baby boy due in late July. I am still missing my best brown boy, who left my side about a year ago, and I still smile when I think of his head sticking out my side window when we drove anywhere. Just that thought makes me laugh and cry. he was a good boy!

Shanley said...

Cute design, I'd love to make a quilt for my cousin's son, who just got a new black lab.

Aubrey said...

Fun shorts for my boy!! Thank you SO MUCH for designing some boy-friendly fabric. I have a really hard time finding boyish stuff. This is super cute.

We have a very, very sweet pooch named Lucy, a border collie mix from the pound who is the best dog ever. :)

Jamie said...

The fabric would be wonderful for baby burp cloths to gift new mamas!

epban said...

Love the pooches and big pickups! I think I'd have to make a lap quilt and pillows!

Allie said...

laurie, I absolutely love all of your fabric, I can't wait to see what you come up with next! I would love to create something fun with pooches and pickups like a fun grocery bag!

kristi said...

Your fabric is so wonderful. I have made great kids hoodies out of them!

I would make this fabric into a quilt for my grandaughter when she visits Grammy's house. She loves her Papa's vintage pickup and her Grammy's yellow lab. Awesome fabric!

Stephanie said...

I would LOVE to make a doggie bed for my sweet nephew-dog Jake, who is a black lab. SUCH cute fabric! :)

Sorry for the delete. :(
I would make a cute pillow!!!

Trish said...

My life is full of dogs. (I am so lucky.) I would make a throw for my therapy dog, Ranger, and I to sit on with one of Ranger's reading students at the elementary school.

Ruth Leffler said...

We sell organic produce at our local farmers' market where I also sell children's clothing and accessories. A big seller is my baby bibs and burpcloths. I would love to make little boy bibs and burpcloths and maybe even a car pillow to match from these terrific truck fabrics, since little boys seem to get the shaft when it comes to stylish duds. Thanks for a great giveaway.

Meredith said...

I'm one of eleven children, four of whom are married with children to give us a total of 3 girls and 8 boys!!! So I'm always looking for cute fabric for boys to make boys just as cute as the girls!

Jill Spyker - fishskin fabric said...

oh laurie - don't actually send me the fabric because I'll be buying some bolts of it, but I just wanted to say... I LOVE IT! (and thanks for adding me on flickr... you made my week!)
Jill

Anne Goldstein said...

Love the fabric! I would like to make a little jacket or pants for my son. Or perhaps a little blanket for him. He is just 3 months old so lots of options!

Mary said...

I would make a throw to remind me of the red vintage pickup my husband used to own. I have a small dog that always jumps up when she sees me pull out a quilt.

Vicki Freeman said...

Love, love, love your new fabrics!!!

Gwyneth said...

i would love to make some cute shirts/pants for my 4 month old son!

Tiffany said...

I think I just want to make those shorts! Or some other type of clothing for boys...

Slowpoke said...

Dear Laurie,
I have loved all your fabric designs right from the start. You are a great designer. How you come up with ones that top the last, it's just amazingly cute! I would like to make Elizabeth's Birthday Cake quilt if I could win some of your fab fabrics. I loved the bright colors as soon as I saw it. Thanks for a chance. Always gratefully, Luba

So cute! I would make some baby quilts out of these prints. It is so hard to find cute boy fabrics.

Melissa L said...

I would make a quilt for our couch just to snuggle up with our puppy dogs!! We have two pooches - Sandy (a Lhaso Apso) and Minus (a St. Bernard).

Harrysmum said...

Fabulous new range - so nice to have a boys range that's not red white & blue!
I'd make a shirt for my nephew Charlie - he's almost 2 and love "wuffs" (dogs!)

Victoria said...

This fabric reminds me of my doggie! I love the colors and the designs. So fun and cute! Perfect for a quilt for our black couch. Can't wait till the fabric is available for purchase!

Janet said...

My dog was a stray that I adopted when he was about a year and a half old. He has some terrible ingrained habits - like chasing trucks on the highway - not all of them, just the ones he selects. He loves riding in the car with me or the truck with DH though. Your fabric is cute. Thanks for a chance to win.

Ladybug said...

I would love to make a doggy bed with your new super cute line. I love the blues greens and browns.

Delores said...

Love this fabric - I can see quilts for my grandsons made out of it!
Would love to win!

Despite cushions being my first thought, these prints are far too cute to stay in the house - I'd most definitely make a skirt and wear it with pickup and poochy pride!!
The colour combos are perfect - such a great job :)

Lisa said...

i'll totally make a sun dress...to take my pit bull mix puppy on a walk. i'm sure you'd love her. she's crazy. and thinks she's a person. and sleeps on my bbq when she's in the backyard. and has learned to open cabinets, steal loaves of bread, and leave the wrapper where she found it.

The Vegetarian Hunter said...

Thanks for the change to win luck fabulous fabric! I would make something for my nefews, I have been thinking of quilted iPod cases as they are boys and break things. lol. Thank you again and congrats on another great line!

Donna~~ said...

Darling fabric! I've only one old very sweet Golden Retriever, but my husband has loved his trucks since the day we got married (one was with us for almost 30 years before I got him to replace it). Your vintage truck reminds me of my grandpa's old truck that I used to play on. So yes, I love your fabric! (I feel bad for your station wagon though--it must be so jealous!) I'd probably use the fabric to make something for Father's Day for my dad who also has a truck and a huge black lab. Both dogs (gold & black) adore him, so your fabric is perfect!

Dawn S. said...

What fabulous fabric! I would probably make something for one of my sons if I were to win. We have always been a dog oriented family and the breed we have owned the most of and the longest is Corgis. Love 'em!

Bree said...

GORGEOUS!
That would have to become a shared quilt in my house. Kid+Dog+Quilt = cuddly movie watching goodness. The tot loves dogs and "tucks"... this line is perfect!

Cameron H said...

A quilt for my son featuring those red trucks would definitely be in order!

robin said...

Love that fabric!! Now about my poochies - we have an outdoor dog that's a golden retriever named Cowboy. He's really laid back. And we have an indoor dog that's Shih Tzu/Maltese named Carter - he's a goof and a half! Thanks for the giveaway chance!

Sarah said...

I would love to make a quilt for my other half who seems to missed when all the quilting is done, he sits all cold beside me on the couch helping me design all my other quilts..it would be fun to do one in secret. Thank you for the opportunity, Your fabric is marvelous!

karen serna said...

love the new fabric! so adorable and as a mom to 1 boy & due to have another of the male sex in a couple of months, i would hope to make something fun for each of my boys. pj bottoms or grab bags to haul their gear around. :) thanks for the chance to win!

Stray Stitches said...

Your new fabric line is adorable. I have two grandsons that I'm sure I could make something for :) Thanks for the opportunity to enter your great giveaway.

Gidget said...

Oh so cute!
I have the most adorable pug named Scrubs...
he just loves me with all his big heart and eyes!
I enjoy him so much, we have discussed maybe another pug.
I love your fabric and you story, thank you for this wonderful chance to win some!

Sallie said...

I would like to use the fabric to make a quilt for an orphan for our church quilt ministry. Thanks for the chance!

Admin said...

Beautiful! I would make my nephew a quilt, pillow and or lovey out of it.

meli B said...

I don't have a pooch - the only pet we have is a Goliath Stick Insect! His cage might like a bit of the green pooch fabric around the base. His favourite colour is eucalyptus green. I think the rest of the fabric could be used for toys and building blocks. If you sew them around the big heavy wooden blocks, they won't be so noisy when they get knocked over.

Natasha said...

I am thinking some pillow cases, or something like that.

Kent said...

A cool boys jacket is what I would make.

Patty said...

Cute lil' boys pants or a neat pillow. Love my pooches I have a mini schnauzer and an anatolian shepard/ bernese mountain dog. They look like mut and Jeff! :^)

Antoinette Gross said...

Our dog passed away recently and loved to go on car rides as well. Love the fabrics. I'd probably do a baby quilt for an expecting friend.

Nana B said...

This is such cute fabric. We live on an island where everyone seems to have either a dog or a pick- up and most people have both! I would love to win this fabric to make a lap quilt for the a family member who have three dogs.

OhioMomPatriot said...

I would make a tote bag and new pet bed for my older neighbor and her dog. She is on a fixed income and we try to help her keep her dog without giving anything up for herself. thank you for the fabulous fabric and the giveaway!

Corinnea said...

I really like your newest line! I promise not to let my dog ride in the back of a pickup, if I had a pickup... Thanks for the chance to win. This would be sooo cute for my grandson!

kath said...

Oh I love the dogs in the back of the truck (in theory, not practice). We have 2 goldens and look so cute in the back of our truck for pictures but they've never ridden there much to my husband's dismay. I would make shorts for my son who is obsessed with dogs and trucks--they would be patchwork with big pockets (because at 3, everything must have big pockets for those rocks that seem to be everywhere). Thanks for the wonderful giveaway.

justabitfrayed said...

I used to have a tiny yorkie/chihuahua mix but my mom kept her when I moved! :) now I have a little son who needs a quilt with these fabrics!
