Another Truly Customized Baby Gift :)

I love getting emails from Tiffany; she always has fun requests. :) Here's the gift she's sending to a friend who just had a baby:
This little family lives on a boat in the Virgin Islands (!) so Tiffany requested a onesie with a sailboat on it. I used the boat from Embroidery Boutique's Sailboat Patch design. I added "SARABANDE" (the name of the boat) with Embird Alphabet #16.
To add a little fun to the onesie, here's the backside:
Tee-hee-hee... clever idea.
For the lime green bib, we reused an idea Tiffany had suggested three years ago for her niece. Louis and Steve are the dogs. :) The text is Embird Alphabet #18, and the paw prints came from Sew Forum (no longer available).
And the peach bib requires a bit of explanation... "She is a huge fan of the Steven Martin movie /The Jerk/, where he is raised by an African-American family and doesn't realize he's adopted and cries with that line when he figures it out. I know they are going to absolutely die laughing." Ha! Inside jokes are one of the best things about doing custom embroidery!

I want to know how they live on a boat with littles! I am of course envious though!!! :) love all of it!
