A truly CUSTOM baby gift

I love getting emails from Tiffany! (And I'm pretty sure I've started a blog post with that exclamation before.) She always has a vision for unique and meaningful gifts -- the kind of inside jokes that only the recipient will really get. It's so much fun to make her visions a reality!
One item is an "I share with..." bib; Constance is the family dog. (It's hard to believe it's been over five years since I made the first bib like this that she requested!) The text is Embird Alphabet #18, and the paw prints came from Sew Forum (no longer available).
The other bib has the words: "All Hail The Sibling Master!" (She said, "It's a funny term they've started using after someone described the baby's relationship to the dog--the aforementioned Constance--in that way.") I used 8CP Fonts: Pottery for the top line and Arizona for the bottom line.
Finally, the burp cloth is a play on Rene Magritte's painting "Le Trahison des Images." Tiffany said in reference to the dad, "One of his courses is literary theory. Magritte's pipe is a starting point for a lot of discussions and...well...I'm sure you math people have a lot of jokes that are only funny to other math people, right?"
The text says, "Ceci n'est pas une bouteille." Which translates, "This is not a bottle." Because it's not a bottle. It's a burp cloth with an image of a bottle. :)
The bottle is a Grand Slam design, and I added the text with 8CP's Brass (retired).

I do not have words for how much I love how this gift turned out! Thank you a million times over for your patience with me because I know my orders can be very time-consuming. I still can't get over how much you rocked the bottle/pipe design on the burp cloth. You absolutely captured the image perfectly!!!
