To Each His Own

Amongst all the Christmas chatter, there are still birthdays, and babies, and all that good stuff.

This gift was made for a couple we met this year at Tiki Oasis






You will note the use of tropical drinks, the word "bar," and scantily clad Hawaiian girls in this print. Like I said to the woman who cut the fabric who seemed skeptical that this print should be used for a baby gift - To each his own.

Blanket is lined in flannel and has a custom tiki felt applique. I made the iron-ons using images from the fabric. A vintage swizzle stick was used to make the gift tag flag!

*Note* The baskets that the ornaments from Ikea came in are really coming in handy as gift baskets!
