Finally…the GIVEAWAY

***Giveaway Closed*** 

Well, here’s the most recent giveaway. I had so much fun creating my own little pattern for this tie. I guess I just really wanted to see a handsome little tie on my bubba boy. It’s nothing fancy-shmancy but I tried several different ideas before I came up with something I liked. All prototypes were tested on my little chubs, Connor. This is the style/shape that I liked the best. Let me know what you think.

(Same pattern/size but not the actual tie in the giveaway)

Actually, I’d especially like to know what one of you thinks first hand…..after you win this little set. I’m excited to see it on some other little guy too.

Here is the actual set up for grabs…

The tie is 9 inches long and is adjustable with velcro. The neck adjustment, at its largest, is 14 1/2 inches. The tie is 100% cotton with a felt lining. Make sure to wash on a delicate cycle or by hand and then lay flat to dry. Iron as needed.

The little shoes are size: 12 months. They are 4 1/2 inches from heel to toe and can be wiped with a cloth to be cleaned. Not made for the washing machine.

Ah man, can you even stand it?? A little boy in a tie. I can hardly handle it myself. ;o)

This giveaway is just like the rest. Ooooh, all you mommas, aunts, g-ma’s, friends of little boys…’s something for you.
