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!
