3 Little Birds Stitch Co Review and Giveaway!
Jodi's other obsession
(ends 10/24/11 at 11:59pm CST)
I have a secret. I used to be addicted to the website Etsy. I would spend far too much time scouring the site, drooling over all the pretties that were available. One day I stumbled upon a little Etsy shop called "3 Little Birds Stitch Co." The lovely lady behind the shop was Felicia Laurenete. She features adorable dresses made with upcycled t-shirts. She also hand stamps/paints details on the fabrics adding just the right finishing touches. My first purchase from her was a "Little Miss Sunshine" dress that my baby girl rocked at her first birthday party.
My little sunshine!

It only took that one purchase.. I was hooked! Felicia is an absolute DOLL to work with. She's got incredible sewing skills but she's not just a seamstress.. she's an artist. I purchased a few of her in stock items, one of my favorite being a dress featuring an owl and to-die-for striped sleeves. She wore the dress until it became a shirt and then sadly the day came when I couldn't squeeze her in it any longer.
The dress that she wore until it became a shirt :)



After purchasing ready-made dresses, I wanted to try her on a custom. I looked through her album of shirts available for customs and nearly DIED when I ran across an Audrey Hepburn shirt. I promptly placed an order for a dress with it, plus another with a to-die-for cupcake shirt.

I wish this fit ME!!
Cupcakes with sunglasses, anyone?
I love everything Felicia has made for us, but my very favorite was a lovely peasant style dress that she made out of one of my favorite tshirts. I sent her the shirt, and with very little input from me, she created this gorgeous article:




My latest purchase is a special dress out of another one of my girl's shirts that will make her 2nd birthday so special. I present to you The Brobee Dress:
I have never been disappointed with any of the work that Felicia has done for me. I will add that all of the dresses I have purchased have been created in a way so they can be worn for a very long time. My girl can still wear all of the dresses, with the exception of the peace owl, and we have owned them all for well over a year. There is a reason I keep going back for custom work from her. She could not be any sweeter, her work could not be any more fabulous, her prices any more reasonable or her turnaround time any faster. If you are looking for a special outfit for your girl, you might give Felicia a chance to impress you as she has me. She also makes adorable hair bows and clips and AWESOME tooth fairy pillows (that I have yet to order, but will eventually!!). She also offers upcycled scarves and custom embroidered wood plaques! So many fun and unique items, you just have to see them for yourself!
