Sew Cute Creations {Review & Giveaway} Adorable Personalized Children's Items

{This giveaway is now closed. Thanks to those who entered!}

Before we left for our recent vacation, I knew that Big Sister E was going to be excited about every new experience. She had already been talking about how much fun she was going to have on the airplanes, the beach and, most importantly, at "Mickey Mouse's house."

Having never been to Disney World as a child, I wanted her to have the best experience possible and both my husband and I continued the conversation with her about how great the visit was going to be. And, barely more than a week before we were set to leave, I came upon what I knew would be the perfect way to complete the magical feeling of a child's first trip to Disney: the Personalized Appliqued Mouse Ears Tee from Sew Cute Creations.

Having won a giveaway to Sew Cute Creations earlier this year, I was visiting this adorable Etsy shop to see what future shirt I might pick. But when I saw this listing, I could already picture the surprise and excitement that would be on Big Sister E's face if I showed her this shirt the morning of our Disney visit.

After apologizing profusely to Barbara for asking with such short notice, I crossed my fingers and went back to preparing and packing for our trip. And when a package from Sew Cute Creations arrived with plenty of time to spare, this high-quality, handmade shirt was customized exactly to my specifications and precisely how I envisioned it. Along with the cute Minnie Mouse bow on the iconic ears, Big Sister E's name was even embroidered adorably in the Disney font underneath.

When the big day arrived, I was right - Big Sister E couldn't have been more excited to put on her new shirt. She kept rubbing her hand along the soft fabric and pointing out the spelling of her name. When she wore it out, she received compliments left and right and people even questioned us if we had bought it there in the park. Overall, it was even better than I had expected! Big Sister E was so proud to show it to her new friends when the time finally came...

Sew Cute Creations also offers custom dresses, bibs, burp clothes and more as well, but the shirts truly are the stars of the shop. From simple to elaborate and plain to embellished, there is a design for every occasion and to suit all tastes. No matter what the upcoming event, whether it be a birthday, the 4th of July (or other holidays, of course) or just celebrating a wonderful child in your life, the cutest long or short-sleeve options are available in sizes 3 months up to a youth 12.

One of Barbara's newest additions to Sew Cute Creations, I think the Personalized Ruffled Chiffon Ice Cream Cone Shirt is one of my all-time favorite custom shirts that I've seen. I can imagine that there would be a lot of pretend-licking and ice cream discussion if Big Sister E wore this eye-catching shirt around:

For the cutest made-to-order, high quality shirts and more, Sew Cute Creations offers the attention-to-detail, fast service, absolutely attractive designs and affordable prices that you don't want to miss. Big Sister E's shirt has been worn and washed multiple times and still looks in pristine condition. As I ordered it with a little extra room to grow, this will surely be a favorite of hers for years to come!

Thanks to Barbara at Sew Cute Creation's generosity, one person will have the opportunity to design a one-of-a-kind personalized shirt for the child in their life, because...

One lucky person will win the custom shirt of their choice from
Sew Cute Creations!
