Poppy Dip . . . a Fun Giveaway!

IMG_3324


It is no secret that I really like kid's clothing and I especially like handmade or unique things. I recently stumbled across a blog called It's Poppy Dip written by a mom of five -- two of whom were adopted from Ethiopia. The name It's Poppy Dip means "everything is good"... it's an expression that her two-year old loves to say when he's happy and things are good.

Sallee is making dresses to fund their family's third Ethiopian adoption. The dresses are darling, well-made and available in lots of different fun fabrics. Plus, Sallee gets them made so quickly. It's hard to imagine how a busy mom-of-five finds the time to sew let alone sew quickly. I'm impressed.

Now here is the great part . . . Sallee is going to give one lucky ". . . and babies make four" reader a custom-made Poppy Dip dress. You get to choose the fabric and the size (12 months to 7 years).

To enter, simply visit It's Poppy Dip, click on the "Fabrics" link at the top and then come back and leave a comment here telling me what Poppy Dip fabric you're coveting for a dress for your little one or a little one you know. Sallee just added some new fabrics for Fall so if you've already got cooler days on your mind, you're in luck.

Leave your comment here by midnight CST Sunday July 25.

I'll pick one super lucky winner at random and post the winner on Monday, July 26.

Good luck!

  1. Gotta tell you ... your adorable girls and their clothing have inspired way too many outfits in Em's closet! :)

    But you have to love clothing with a cause!! Such adorable dresses at such a reasonable price!! I hope folks flock to her site. My favorite is the zippity-zoo-da charcoal / carmel fabric....

    But how can you chose just one?

  2. Thanks for the chance to participate in your drawing... It was hard to choose a favorite Poppy Dip fabric (because they were all so cool and unique!) but I think I like Kawaii Asian stripe best.

    I really enjoy your blog and I LOVE your photos! Thanks for sharing!

  3. What precious dresses! And a lovely idea Sallee has to help bring her new little one home!

    I love the mocca print - so fun!

    Thanks Kristi!

  4. Wow--Am I the first one?
    Martina is in a phase where she only likes to wear pink. And, she LOVES dresses and gets very upset when I make her wear anything else. This style would be perfect for her.

    So, I think she'd covet the magenta pink floral dress!

  5. I think my favorite is the owl cream! I have this thing for owls lately!

  6. I am alway in love with your girls clothes and outfits. I am definitely going to get this simple, elegant dress too, the krakow blues material is fabulous!

  7. Sweet!! I'm kinda partial to the Kawaii Asian stripe fabric. Adorable dresses, and I love the store name.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Love the giveaways! Would love a mocca dress for my Lily!

    ReplyDelete
  9. What adorable dresses... I know my little one would love every single fabric, but my eye goes toward the apple flower brown design.

    ReplyDelete
  10. These dresses (and your models) are "Two" cute! I love all the fabrics, but "owl cream" really caught my eye.

    I've never won ANYTHING; therefore, I'm so happy that the prices of these dresses are extremely reasonable! I will have to order a few for my girls!

    Thanks for introducing this site!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Just found your blog. The dresses are darling, as are your little ones. Deco rose dark brown, was my favorite :) What a fun give away.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Cute stuff. Hard to choose.

    I choose "feeling groovy orchid/brown"

    thanks for the chance to win!

    Kind regards from Miami,

  13. Kristi, I don't comment often because all of my comments would be the same, over and over again, along the lines of:

    "WOW! What fun!"
    "You're SO talented!"
    "What beautiful, beautiful girls!"

    I've been following you since you were in China--we were filling out our paperwork at the time. Ah, how the years have flown and are flying...

    My fabric choice for the dress (and it was impossible to choose) is "pumpkins gone wild walnut (dk brown) funky flower."

    ReplyDelete
  14. Deco Rose Dark BROWN, would look lovely on my China Princess and her CROWN...I thought rhyming would help :)
    Love your blog and I ordered from "Pretty Me" after seeing your girls in those adorable skirts ~ you are a bad influence ~ thanks :)

  15. Hi Kristi,

    As always I love your photos!!! I love dressing my granddaughter in the funky fabs too! I know she would think "Sea Beauties" was "POPPY DIP"so.........I think that is my choice........(how many times can I enter?) Oh well I will just have to buy 2 or 3 of MY favorites!!!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I love the way you dress your girls so if Poppy Dip is good enough for you its good enough for me! Hopefully we should be bringing our little girl home in
    3-4 months and i think she would look very cute in one of these dresses.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Love your blog-your girls are beautiful and I always love to see their clothes! :)
    I love all the fabrics from Poppy Dip and the casue is a great one! My daughter loves animals and especially owls so I would pick the "owl cream" fabric as our favorite.
    I will be ordering a dress or 2 for my daughter on my own also!

    Thanks!
    Hope in CT

    BTW you beauties are getting so big. I have followed your blog since you went to China and now they are so big. My how time flys.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Wow, what a great idea for a giveaway. My daughter Brandi is almost 3. She loves busy print fabrics so I'd have to go with the Garden collage dk cocoa. It would look so cute with tights in the winter. Thanks you! Jodi Anne

    ReplyDelete
  31. My favorite is the Smiles fabric, but it is hard to choose. There are so many nice ones.

    Michal and Kenna look so adorable in their Poppy Dip dresses, but then those two would look adorable in paper bags I think.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh! You *KNOW* how I love your girls' clothes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  33. What beautiful dresses!
    I will definitely be checking the shop out once we bring our daughter home in Aug/Sept!
    As far as favorite fabric - it's so hard to choose one!
    I think I am in love with Owl Cream, followed by Sweet Tooth Yellow. Oh, and what's the one with the guitars? That one, too!
    Thanks for introducing me to such beautiful dresses!

  34. What a neat and fun idea, and a wonderful cause. Thanks for the opportunity.
    My favorite is the "riley" print. It's pink, Marissa's favorite color, and the pattern looks like intersecting roads...just what our life has been about this year. Yet, even with the trials the roads of life throw us, the flowers are what we take with us. That's what I'm trying to teach Marissa!

  35. Now you'll see how many of us really read your blog ( : So many pretty fabrics it's hard to choose but I think boho blossom (black) is my favorite. Hugs to All -Dale

  37. Adorable dresses on adorable girls. I love a number of the fabrics but I's have to pick Valori orange BIG pink flower
    because pink and orange are my girl's favorite colors and we both love big flowers.

    ReplyDelete
  38. What a hard choice - most of the fabrics caught my eye! But, if I were pressed to choose, I think my girls would look fab-o in

    northcott blue green stripe or the krakow blue flowers (I'd have to buy a second if I won, as both of my girls would HAVE to have a Poppy Dip dress!

    ReplyDelete
  39. So sweet! I'd love one made in the Jitterbug Brown Dots but then again, I'd like any of them. Too cute!

  46. My Kate would LOVE the pumpkin gone dots. She seems to be all about dots on her clothes lately! I wonder if Sallee would ever be convinced to sew for bigger girls (ie, beyond 7) so I could get my 9 year old a cute dress, too.

    ReplyDelete

  50. Oh, I love the fabric and the dresses. I hope I get picked!!!
    Very hard to choose, but I love the pumpkins gone wild walnut (dk brown) funky flower...or maybe the sea beauties since my girl is so into the Little Mermaid!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I love the dresses! I just started sewing again. My girls looked at the fabrics and chose their favorites. The Queen chose "Krakow Blues" and The Princess chose "Magenta Pink Floral." So, I guess if I win a dress I will have to buy one too. But what a great cause!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Thank you for the giveaway! I've enjoyed watching your beautiful girls grow up!

    I love these dresses -- the simple style, the fabric choices -- great for almost any type of day!

    Although choosing ONE fabric is tough, I'm choosing Boho Blossom b/c it's completely different from anything Esther has.
