Sweet Tea For Kids (Review & $25.00 Gift Certificate Giveaway)

Part of Balian's 2nd Birthday Bash

In keeping with our Cat in the Hat birthday theme, which I know seems like has been comin' atcha the entire month of October, I got incredibly lucky and was offered an extra adorable Cat in the Hat shirt for Balian. Of course, this shirt wasn't just any shirt- it's a strikingly handsome shirt, handmade by Sweet Tea for Kids on Etsy.

Sweet Tea for Kids is owned and operated by Laura Futty. Laura is a one woman show at Sweet Tea for Kids. She is the owner, designer and seamstress... a self-taught seamstress, to be exact! Laura is a mommy to two girls, and a wife, as well. She says her daughters are her inspiration for her designs. A self-proclaimed fabric addict, Laura loves to pour her creativity into her quality work, and enjoys working on custom orders.

Laura was more than happy to send us a special shirt for Balian to wear and enjoy, as part of our special birthday bash! I love for Balian to look extra super cute, and feel special in his outfits- especially the ones that the other kids aren't likely to have copies of.

2T Cat in the Hat Shirt from Sweet Tea for Kids

Laura sent us an adorable Cat in the Hat boys short sleeved t-shirt the week of Balian's birthday party. I had hoped that it would make an appearance at Balian's birthday party, but I did a major mommy no-no. We were so rushed the day of his party, that I dressed him in the shirt first thing that morning. We went out to grab some breakfast, and well- the shirt definitely needed to be laundered after that. However, Balian had a great time wearing the shirt for the first part of the day, and begged me to 'clean it, mommy!' so he could wear it the following day.

About the Shirt:

Laura uses super soft tees- seriously, this is one of the softest shirts we have ever received for Balian. A lot of shirts irritate his skin, but this cotton shirt is so creamy and soft, he wears it all day without trying to pull it off. The shirt itself is a nice, bold royal blue color, which I love, because Balian has a lot of black and navy, but hardly anything that closely resembles this color. All of Laura's designs are hand-stitched and professionally sewn, heat-bonded, embroidered, etc, by Laura, in her smoke-free home studio! This shirt is available in sizes 18mo, 2, 4, 6, & 8. The size of the appliqued hat is the same on every shirt- though it will appear smaller on the larger shirt sizes, and larger on the smaller sizes.

I love the whimsical design of Cat's hat- it's so adorable, and spot on! Balian really loves having a shirt with just the hat on it, and not a bunch of characters. Balian has been wearing the shirt quite a lot since we received it, and I am happy to report that it washes and dries really well!

As for us, we can't thank Laura enough for sending us this special shirt! It's a little loose fitting, which means that we'll be able to layer another long sleeved shirt underneath, and keep wearing it all winter long! Balian is very proud to wear his special Cat in the Hat shirt, and has been showing it off. We've received a lot of compliments on the tee, and have had a lot of folks ask where it came from!
