FABRIC FRIDAY!


It’s Frrrrrriday!! Fabric Friiiiiiday!! Don’t know what that is? Sounds good though, right? The Friday afternoon mini-contest formerly known as Friday{Surprise}Prize will now be Fabric Friday! 

When we were in Salt Lake City, we met with Cynthia from Fabricworm and had a little impromptu brainstorming session (see, we did work) and Fabric Friday was born. Our favorite comment on any post during the upcoming week will now win a YARD of fabric from fabricworm.

This week it’s a yard of Laurie Wisbrun Pooches and Pickups, Pickup Trucks / Spring.
Sooo cute for boy-ness or perhaps for Father’s Day? Clare just looked over my shoulder and requested a truck skirt. How cute would that be? See the entire Pooches and Pickups Collection.

Keep the comments coming! It’s lonely here at Prudent Baby when we don’t hear from the Prudent Mamas!

That fabric is adorable. Just looking at the print reminds me of the pickup my sister in law drove when we were in high school and the dog in the back looks like her dog now!! Plus my SIL just had a little boy last month and I'd LOVE to make something for her (well, actually my nephew) with this fabric.

I adore Laurie Wisbrun's fabric lines, and this print is no exception. I could make something really cute for one of my boys with it!

LOVE the Pooches and Pick-ups fabric! My 4 month old son, Jones, would look mighty cute in something made from this fabric–and my husband's family is from a teeny-tiny town in South Carolina called Holly Hill, so he's pretty much destined to own a pick-up truck at some point in his life πŸ™‚

We are pickup-truck, pooch loving families over here with a new little boy due this summer. How cute would it be to make a welcoming quilt with this fabric!

Are these trucks five-speed standard transmissions? I hope so because all five of the drivers in my family currently drive five-speeds! Fabric is great – my 6 mth old grandson would love it! πŸ™‚

SO exciting especially since I posted my first comment this week on that BEAUTIFUL eye candy you showed us.

Well, here in El Puig, Valencia, Spain, the streets are sooooo narrow that its impossible for a truck like that to move around. So… How about my little 4 year old boy with a new backpack full of trucks?
Love it!

I LOVE THIS FABRIC! I don't have lots of boyness in my fabric stash, I'm so hoping to win this so I can make my boy a righteous birthday robot that isn't all metro. Not that there is anything wrong with a metrosexual robot.

Ahh, this fabric brings back such wonderful memories. When my three siblings and myself were young, my dad had an old 1950 something Ford pick-up truck. On Saturdays in the summertime, he would load us up into the back, along with a dog or two, and carefully and slowly drive us to the local ice cream shoppe. It was a time even before seat belts and putting kids into the bed of an open truck was okay!

We lost Dad last year to Alzheimer's, but this print is a wonderful, bittersweet reminder of those carefree days.

You had me at "Fabric Friday".

Then, you went and made it all charmingly boyish. As a momma of two boys, I say "yes, please".

So glad you gals got some work done. πŸ˜‰

Absolutely adorable!! I am 30 weeks pregnant with a little boy and part of my nesting has been trying to figure out how to craft something for a boy! With my daughter, I could just pop a bow or flower on something and call it good! I don't think that baby Jackson would appreciate that though… πŸ˜‰

OOHHH!!! LOVE!
My boy would LOVE a pair of shorts out that fabric… or maybe a backpack or bag of some sort… or a dress for my daughter… OH the possibilities are ENDLESS!!

Oh I love this fabric! Blue pick-ups hold a special place in my heart. My gradpa died when I was 6 months to the day, and I think it was always to hard for my day to talk about him. However, he has always kept Grandpa's old blue pickup that was bought on the day I was born (May 24th – the truck is almost 28 years old now). For some reason my 2 year old is madly in love with the old blue truck – much more so than my Dad's new blue one. I'd love to make my son a pair of shorts to wear as a father's day surprise for my Dad.

Adorable! I'd looove to make this fabric into a little bow tie or burp cloth or blankie.. or pretty much anything a little baby boy would use! Maybe all three! Hehe. We've got some cute baby boys coming into this world soon and they need cute hand-made fabric things! πŸ™‚

Oh man what I wouldn't do with this fabric. My little stinker loves anything that moves from bicycles to trucks and adores our lab pup. I would quickly make him comfy pants, because he would be the cutest thing in them. And save a bit for a banner I want to make him with multiple different fabrics! Oh please Oh please Oh please!

How appropriate! I just did a post today about my recent Fabricworm fabric purchase! There is just something about fabric that gets my heart pumping!

I've been gazing lovingly at fabric on Fabricworm lately wanting to make a purchse but haven't bitten the bullet just yet. This is SO adorable. My best friend is due in 3 1/2 weeks and is doing cloth diapers. I think I'd make a waterproof bag for her for the diaperbag.

I am in love! My husband is not a fan of pink so this would make a pretty cute skirt for our daughter! I am sure she would wear it every time he dressed her. We have six dogs that ride in the back of our truck. I love to see how excited they get when they go for a ride.

I drove an old blue pickup in high school and college. My husband still likes to make fun of me for driving that truck. I would love to make a quilt called "Ode to Big Blue" just for him.

Adorable! I always have plenty of girly fabrics around to make something for my baby girl, but I never have anything boyish for my 4 year old son. He would totally love to have something made in this print!

i've never tried FabricWorm yet – i'm dying to make a john john out of this fabric though! or perhaps something fun for my almost 7 month old son and my twin sister's 4 month old son — matching fun in this cute print – what could be better?!?!?!

I LOVE this fabric! My 2 year old really loves anything with wheels: trains, cars, trucks, you name it. I could make him a little jacket or a set of pants and shorts. It is hard for me to find cute boy material where I live. There are plenty of girlish material and quilting material but it is hard to find boyish material in Western NC.

I don't have anything witty to say, but I'm gonna go ahead and comment because I <3 that fabric. I have 2 little very boyish-boys, and they would be ALL. OVER. anything with a pickup truck AND a puppy on it.

Awesome fabric! My Dad had a Ford pickup just like that in baby blue when I was in Middle school. I was so embarrassed ! I would pretend to tie my shoes when we drove up so you couldn't see me drive up. My shoes had buckles.

Love it!! I'm (trying) to stitch up some baby boy items. I think this poor third child will have only hand-me downs his whole life so I am trying to make him a couple of brand new baby outfits. I may be too busy to ever do any crafts again once he arrives! πŸ™‚

I love this fabric. It shows two of my 2-year old's favorite things…trucks and dogs. He would adore this for a pillow for his room.

I love it! It looks like my husbands 1972 ford pick up truck that he paid $400 for at a yard sale, and after 5 years, still runs great! My 2 yr old son looked at the fabric picture and said, "Dere's Daddy's truck!" .

Cute fabric. Reminds me of the time we tried to let our dog ride in the back of the truck. He jumped out while moving. He wasn't hurt, now he rides in a crate in the back of the truck. Poor hubby wanted a dog that would ride nicely in the back of a truck…we don't have that dog, ours is too spunky.

When my hubby and I were first married we drove a red truck like the one in the fabric. We call it Dirty Red and yes we still own it! I was still driving Dirty Red when I had my son. Those are some of my favorite memories. I now drive a Volvo, its not as magical πŸ˜‰

That fabric reminds me of my childhood – in the summertime, we would go to the lake to go fishing or camping and the dog would be in the back of the truck!

My girlfriends 1 1/2 year old son just broke his leg. He was doing his superman impression by jumping off the coffee table. I thought it gave her a heart attack the first time he jumped, I can only imagine her reaction this last time. I get most of my ideas and crafty inspirations from her, but this time I beat her to it. Upon seeing his cast I told her all she needed was some modge podge and some sweet truck fabric (this pooches and pickups would be perfect) and he'd have the most original and awesome cast ever!!!

That is a great pattern for both boys and girls… even for a pet! With one yard I might make a caddy for their resting Wii remotes… for some reason, they just can't seem to keep track of those things!! Thanks!
