I was recently given the chance to review a product from the Etsy store Stitches N Bows. Most items in this store are stitched and/or made by hand. These items are custom made according to the purchasers specifications. There are over two hundred items offered and if you don't see what you were looking for you can send a custom order request. This store offers infant, toddler, and child outfits for both sexes, pillowcases, totes, kitchen, and gift items. And don't get me started on the Disney section of this shop, it's amazing!!!! I was lucky enough to receive, a stitched by hand, Mickey Mouse "My 1st Visit" shirt, for Chase.
I asked for a 4T in blue, even though Chase is in 3T, because the seller told me the shirts run a size small. The shirt that arrived was incredibly soft and fit my little man perfectly! I asked for this shirt to review because in November my husband and I are taking Chase to Disneyland for the first time! So of course he needs his very own My 1st Visit shirt!
While I didn't get photos of mr. wiggleworm in the shirt, I did take photos of the shirt, and I also "borrowed" photos, from the Etsy store, so readers can see how the top looks in various colors, and also how the girl version looks.
6mo-8 3/4" x 11 1/2"
12mo-9 1/4" x 12"
18mo-11" x 13"
2T-12" x 13 1/2"
3T-13" x 14"
4T-14" x 15 1/2"
XS(2/4)-14" x 18"
S(6/8)-16" x 19"
M(10/12)-17" x 20 1/2"
L(14/16)-18" x 23"
XL(18/20)-19" x 26"
This top sells for $28.95 on the site, which is very reasonable considering how much time and effort is put into making the shirt, and USA shipping is $4.50, Canada shipping is $5.50. Most shop items range from $20 and up, it really depends on what you are interested in. When a item is handmade and incapable of being found in stores, I find it's personal and price value are both worth quite a bit more.
