The owner of my gym (and the guy I trained with when I first started lifting) and his wife are having their first human baby soon, a little girl. Their actual first baby is a Maltese dog named Sophie, who sometimes visits the gym–so clearly I had to findĀ  fabrics featuring little white dogs and some dumbbells for a gift:

Both fabrics were from Spoonflower (using the vertical “Fill a Yard” feature, to get a fat half of each), with ribbing found on Etsy. Pattern is the Brindille & Twig One-Piece Romper, which is super cute but fairly labor-intensive (lots of ribbing to apply).

These were a big hit and, as I said in the card, I’m sure Sophie dog will be an excellent big sister.
