A few years before Dutch was born I bought an adorable pair of chambray overalls at the thrift store. They were so precious and I just needed a little baby to fill those overalls. I washed them then ironed them and set them in the guest room closet. I would get those overalls out from time to time and just stare at them and pray that I would have a little baby to fill them one day. Those $1 overalls meant so much to me. When I found out I was pregnant I immediately thought of those overalls.
Years later they are filled in the most perfect way.
Exactly one year before I had embroidered some shirts for Dutch to wear in the hospital so I wanted to do the same for his overalls.
I used the font Little Days for the overalls embroidery and used this handy tip for transferring onto darker fabrics. I usually just use a pencil trace method.
On Dutch's birthday we had some photo made in those special overalls. Amy Leigh Thomas did a great job of documenting his first year.
As you can see he was much too interested in his dorse to take a photo!
