Etsy Shop Review: Giggles To Go
For me, one of the really fun things about having little ones is dressing them. I hate shopping for myself, but could spend all day at the mall picking out outfits for G and C. I especially love personalized clothing, and now that I have two kiddos, personalized coordinating outfits are the ultimate in cuteness.
However, most of the time, outfits with names on them aren’t cheap. I absolutely adore appliqued and embroidered t-shirts, but by the time I pay shipping, I’m often spending close to $30 on one shirt- not exactly in my budget. Also, most of the time these shirts are for holidays, so they are only worn a handful of times, making spending the money even less practical.
But thanks to my friend Traci, who introduced me to the Etsy shop Giggles To Go, I can now afford lots more personalized clothes for the babies. Diane, who runs the shop, designs adorable iron-ons for t-shirts or whatever other fabric item you want them on.
At first I was skeptical- I’ve done iron-ons from Hob.by Lob.by and Mich.aels that would stick for a few hours, but then peel right off. But Diane’s iron-ons are high quality, and even after multiple washings, they stick and look brand new- just like they were screen printed on the shirt. She sends detailed instructions on how to iron them on (it’s actually super easy, but it’s nice to have the step-by-step instructions anyway).
The best part about Diane’s product is the price- only $5/iron on! For most of the shirts I’ve made, I’ve bought plain solid shirts at Wal.Mart for under $4, making each shirt less than $10 total! She is also willing to change colors and fonts to make each design exactly the way you want it. Her designs are so cute and she adds new ones frequently- it’s hard not to go crazy with the ordering!
You had me at SOCK MONKEYS! 🙂
I love Etsy – like – LOVE ETSY! I love the sock monkey matching outfits – too stinking cute! Please post a photo when they're in those together!
I love Giggles to Go and Diane! She's the best, and so are her products!!
What cute stuff on such cute babies! Thanks for sharing this fun shop!I'm sorry I haven't been commenting much lately — I'm so behind on pretty much everything in my life. I was sorry to hear Easter didn't go as you'd planned but I'm glad everyone is home now. And I'm glad you got such gorgeous pictures the weekend before.
Must have the sock monkeys!!! Those are WAY too cute. I'm going on her site right now.
Oh my that ruffle dress with C monogram is precious! These are all so very cute, love love love!
