Proud momma of 2 Boston Terriers

I love the ad campaign here in Baltimore for Smyth Jewelers featuring Mr. Boh (the mascot for National Bohemian Beer)& the Utz girl (mascot for Utz Potato Chips) so much that they were the cake toppers for my wedding several years ago. I recently got an embroidery machine and decided I must make something with these 2 mascots.
Using digitizing software I was able to edit the image and make an embroidery pattern for my Brother machine.


Now I just need to decide what I want to attach this patch to.

Comments, questions & criticism welcomed :-)

This is so cute!  In fact, I think I remember the cake toppers!  (That or it's a really popular idea)  This came out great!
