This applique of a vintage woodie is beach bound with a surfboard on top. The car is cut from aqua on aqua polka dots fabric with Robert Kaufman striped panels and windows. This classic car is modeled after the "woodie" that had wood paneling on the sides. This applique is first fused to the romper with a webbing that makes it very stable, and then detailed stitching in green outlines each piece. The stitching is all done by hand.

All my designs are envisioned by me, drawn with my own two hands (not outlined from drawings or stock images) and lovingly sewn for that quality, handmade finishing touch.

Retro Car with Surfboard: Woodie Car
Infant T-Shirt Romper: White
Colors: Of the ocean (aqua, blues, greens, sunset colors)

If you would like an infant or toddler tee instead of a bodysuit, etc, just convo me and we can work out the details.

Frequently asked questions about thebirdandelephant

- Remove the fabric strip and wash with everyday laundry.
- Wood Rings should always be handwashed, never in a dishwasher or soaked in the sink. Failure to follow these guidelines will result in damage to the ring, including splits, breaks and splinters.

Wash with everyday laundry.

Spot cleaning/sanitizing by hand is recommended, but if a run through the wash is deemed necessary, please use a cold water, gentle cycle with gentle detergent free of brighteners, whiteners, and chemicals harmful to baby and the environment. Post wash cycle, toss in a low setting dryer or air dry. Knead the block into shape.

Follow these simple care instructions for both organic and non-organic items.
Bib sizes denote the distance between the actual snaps, not the length of the bib, itself.
Custom orders are welcome, however, please keep in mind that creating a custom block will take longer as the layout of fabrics, ribbons, etc., takes a lot of thought.

Initials? Names?
I'm happy to personalize, but on a limited basis. I do everything by hand, and at this time, the personalization is in the form of a hand-embroidered applique.

Custom orders and personalized orders cannot be expedited as they usually take up to 2 weeks dependent upon my current work order.
To have your order expedited (made by hand and shipped quickly) there is a RUSH FEE of $20.

Link to the RUSH FEE listing:

I may not be able to accommodate all rush orders, based on availability of materials, etc.
Wholesale requests are welcome! I no longer do consignment. Please contact me for further info regarding my wholesale terms, or if you are a member of the wholesale side of Etsy, please click this link:
My packaging is simple and minimal, at this time. I like to minimize my shop waste, so I use discarded fabric strips to bundle up most orders, and everything goes into a clear waterproof bag to protect your item(s) from the elements.

I am currently in the process of creating packaging that will enhance my products and leave a minimal impact on the landfill.
I make EVERYTHING by hand, by myself. I've requested a personal fairy to answer emails and tidy the shop floor, as well as a couple of seamstresses to help with the sewing, but until those positions are full, it's just me:
answering emails
searching for and ordering fabrics
photographing new items
writing listings
cutting tags and labels....
Please know that I work around the clock, until the wee hours when even the mice have stopped playing (and yes, I am seriously lining up a team for the future).

HOWEVER, see above for Expedited orders, and always, if you need your item by a particular date, please, please let me know to make sure I can accommodate your request.
