Cowboy and Cowgirl Party Ideas

Cowboy and Cowgirl Party Ideas

Did you see our posts on twitter this weekend about the Cowboy party we created decorations and invites for? 

The kids loved the cowboy hat shaped crayons and chocolates in their treat bags, cowboy hats and the ‘WANTED’ poster they could get their photo taken with.  We’ve made it easy for you to plan a Cowboy, Cowgirl or Rodeo theme party with our party set up on Etsy.  Check out the other additional options to make your party a hit!


Custom Headboard, Bedside Tables and Duvet Cover

Custom Headboard, Bedside Tables and Duvet Cover

What a quick, easy refresh for this master bedroom. It’s a tight squeeze in there, and the homeowners have never thought to have a headboard in a small space.
We used 1/2″ plywood wrapped in layers of fibrefill so it wasn’t too thick and didn’t shrink the room at all. We painted the bedside tables and added new knobs that were a steal at $.50 each! With almost a meter of leftover fabric from the duvet, we were able to make two extra pillowcases to add extra pillows and depth to the bed without stealing any space from the room.

What’s Butterpot Up To These Days?

The short answer? Lots!

We offer quite the range of services at Butterpot, a real ‘jack of all trades’ when it comes to creative and design work.

Over the winter we gained a few new clients in our graphic design / communications portfolio. We’ve done some super exciting new work that we can’t wait to share with you.

The Etsy shop has several items in stock, and we’ve been testing out some new techniques and ideas the last few months. Summer makes knitting less enticing, no one wants a lap fill of wool in 30 degree heat so we’re excited to put them up for sale!

In the last couple of months we’ve launched a new part of Butterpot, home baked goods and treats. Our ‘luck of the irish’ cookies were a big hit and we’ve got cakes to make for the next couple of weeks.

Gifts for Future Sports Fans

Gifts for Future Sports Fans

Ever wonder what to get a future parent who isn’t having a shower, hasn’t registered or is asking for really, really, expensive stuff?
Try something handmade. Handmade gifts are fun and unique, like a baby blanket in mom or dad’s favourite teams colours. Half and half perhaps if they like rival teams 😉
I know knitting this Montreal Canadians tribute, styled to look like a hockey sock, got me into trouble with my anti-Montreal other half.
I’ve done baseball teams, football and proper football (soccer) club colours for all sorts of different fans. They’re even a great gift for mum to give to dad or grandparents to announce that another fan will be joining them soon!
If you order a blanket through Etsy, I can customize it to mom and dad’s favourite team colours, including retro and alternate jersey colour combinations.
