Holly Designs Giveaway

Today I’m excited to introduce you to Holly Designs on Etsy where they create custom handmade applique shirts, clothing and gifts for your little ones.

Holly offered to send me a custom shirt for one of the kids. I decided to have her do a shirt for Matilda. I kind of feel like Matilda doesn’t always get the special new things because if I have to choose, I usually will get something for Savannah in hopes that Matilda can wear it a few years later. But this time, it was all about Matilda.

At Holly Designs, you choose the shirt color, the fabric for the applique, the font style and whatever else you might like to customize. So this is what Matilda and I decided on. She likes that the fabric is kind of rainbow-ish and pink goes with lots of her clothing.

I was really impressed by the quality of the applique and it has hand-embroidered stitching around all of the letters which was such a nice handmade touch.

Holly also included this matching pinwheel clip that is just perfect in Miss Matilda’s ponytail that she is always sporting on top of her head.

Anyway, I think you are really going to like these shirts. Here are a few other favorites from Holly Designs:
