Stitch This, Bling That! (Toddler Tee Review & Giveaway)

Part of MBP's Summer Splash

I may have mentioned earlier that Disney CARS has sort of taken over at our house. It all started when we discovered the 'Mater's Tall Tales' on Netflix. Our two and a half-year-old fell in love with that adorable, rusty tow truck, and the rest is history. We now own the Cars movies, a variety of Cars toys, we're in the process of doing a Cars bedroom makeover for B, and we have a couple of licensed Disney Cars t-shirts (and socks and undies), too. Yeah... told ya!


Even though those licensed tees are pretty cute, nothing is as adorable (to me), as seeing your little one in a personalized t-shirt, bearing their favorite characters. If you've been sticking with us, and checking out our posts for a while, you may remember that I worked with Amy Mauldin, of Stitch This Custom back in January of 2012. Amy creates completely cute, cute, cute custom embroidered and appliqued tees, dresses, accessories and more. Amy has really branched out with her business in the past year and a half, offering so many personalization choices, and more options for cuteness than ever before, and is stepping out with a revised business name, Stitch This, Bling That.

I was flattered when I heard from Amy a few weeks ago. Amy offered me another opportunity to work with her, reviewing a personalized toddler tee for Balian. I was so excited when Amy told me about all of the fun Disney character designs she had that I could choose from. She instructed me to head to her Stitch This Bling That Facebook page and glance through the photo albums to find a design that Balian would enjoy. That was definitely easier said than done, because there were over one hundred designs to look through, and I sort of got distracted by the cute totes, crock pot carriers, and stuff for um, ME! As I scrolled through the Disney designs, though, I knew that Balian would love a Cars themed shirt with his name on it, so I sent my preferences to Amy, and she wasted no time getting to work on a custom shirt for us.

...and out of the bag! Is this adorable or what?

I really wasn't sure what the shirt was going to like like, so when I took it out of the bag it was sent in and unfolded it, and laid it out on the table, I was pleasantly surprised. Amy used some Cars fabric for the appliqued letter 'B' for Balian. The fabric features one of B's favorite Cars characters, Lightning McQueen. The 'B' is outlined in a corresponding yellow embroidery thread. In the bottom corner of the appliqued letter 'B,' is an add-on on Balian's absolute favorite Cars character, Mater.

Here's a closer look at the design on our shirt from Stich This Bling That...

To top off the overall design of this cute shirt, Amy personalized it one step further by adding Balian's name underneath the appliqued letter. Amy used a super cute Disney type font for the embroidery, and bold red thread. I can't get over the font! It screams Disney, and it's so different from any of the other fonts we've seen on personalized, embroidered t-shirts for Balian. The embroidered outline, and the embroidered name look wonderful, and they wash and wear very well. Balian has already worn this shirt twice, and I've washed it twice, with no problem, and zero worries about the threads unraveling.

Balian absolutely loves this t-shirt and has asked to wear it countless times since we received it, just a little over a week and a half ago. We went with a 4T for this shirt, per Amy's suggestion, and it fits wonderfully. It's a little roomy, but right now, that's what we want, because B grows faster than the weeds in my garden. B got a few food stains on the shirt, but they weren't anything that I couldn't get out with some good stain remover. Orange juice, you're no match for this mom! I have a feeling that Balian will be wearing this shirt well into the fall season, and if it still fits by the time winter rolls around, this will look great with a red long sleeved shirt underneath.

This is one happy boy, thanks to Amy's generosity and creativity!

We're talking about putting a family trip to Disney together for our next big trip. I am beyond excited, and cannot wait to see Balian encounter all of his favorite characters in such a magical place. I have already been hinting to my husband that I totally want Disney themed shirts for the whole family when we do make our trip. Not only that, I'd love for Balian to have a whole week's worth of different personalized Disney shirts for the duration of our trip. Lucky for me, Stitch This Bling That has a huge variety of Disney themed options, and lots of other adorable products, too!
