Friday Finds {The Plaid Giraffe} Giveaway

It all started with a cute little elephant. An elephant almost exactly like this one.

He came on a t-shirt with coordinating knit pants with three rows of ruffles on the bottom. The girls loved their elephant shirts and I loved their elephant shirts and now my friend's twin girls love their hand-me-down elephant shirts.

The elephant shirts were made by The Plaid Giraffe. The Plaid Giraffe specializes in adorable appliqued clothing. She doesn't use templates or machine appliques but instead draws everything by hand, which means the designs are unique and very, very cute. And it's kind of fun because anything in her shop can be made in sizes newborn to adult. Every one of her designs can be made in other colors and on other colored shirts or dresses. And everything can be made with or without a name on it.

She made adorable birthday shirts and ruffled pants one year for Michal and Kenna with this cupcake design on them.

I think the cupcake design may just be my favorite thing in her store.

Although I'm pretty taken with this funny little bird too.

This giveaway will stay open until Wednesday, April 28 at midnight.
