Inexpensive Dress Up Clothes - A Review

I'm a member of the Mom Bloggers Club and was asked by one of their administrators if I'd be interested in receiving some free dress up clothes for my little girl after seeing my post of her in the Toddler-Saurus shirt I recently made for her. Peanut is just shy of turning three and she's all girl. She loves her play kitchen, baby dolls, sparkles, and most recently, dress up. There have been plenty of days where I arrive to pick her up from daycare and she's decked out as Ariel. "I mermaid mommy!"

Normally, my blog is about crafting, but crafting requires imagination and that's something Peanut has no shortage of so I figured why not. I had no idea what the company was and I'm not receiving any commissions for this post. I was just gifted a surprise box of goodies and I must say we were both extremely pleased with them and had a blast just messing around.

The goodie box came from and contained the following items:

After looking at their site for this post, I just want to mention that you can order the ribbon wands and ribbon halos by the dozen, so they'd make a great party favor for room full of little screaming girls for sure.

There's a ton of other things on there that were not included in our surprise box, such as:

and more of course...

Overall, we just had a good time playing together with all the fun goodies in the box and I'm glad we were selected for this. So without further delay, my bragging moments begin...

I have no idea what this face is about, but she did it a lot.

Update: Peanut played with the boa to death.
It shed a LOT which she enjoyed because she was blowing pink feathers around like they were bubbles. 
I on the other hand was not nearly as amused with this because the dogs wanted to eat them.

Yep, mom got in on the action too.

Softball Sister SVG File

Two of our older girls are in softball and games are right around the corner for our family. Once opening weekend begins we'll be living at the fields, so of course I'm starting to prepare.

My poor toddler has become my guinea pig lately. She's been an awful good sport about it for the most part, even if she does look at me like I'm nuts. My husband is certainly getting a kick out of my trying to direct her to pose for photos when she really rather just be watching Jurassic Park (yeah, I know, bad mom here).

I absolutely love how this turned out for her!

I am truly a die hard Cricut vinyl user, but I'll admit to branching out a smidge and using some Siser on this project as well because I really like the true block (i.e. white back) on the red.

Specifically here is what I used for this shirt:

2. Rabbit Skins Toddler Cotton Jersey T-Shirt from I order all my shirt blanks from them. This one runs $3.96 if your order is under $80 ($80 over gets you an additional bulk discount on your order). There are some less expensive options on there, but these are a great quality and worth a few cents more in my opinion.

3. Cricut's SportFlex Neon-Yellow Iron-On. Siser also offers a yellow like this which I recently ordered in bulk from because I've been making a ton of these softball shirts lately. Personally I like the 10'" by 5 yard rolls because it's easier to cut to my mats than the 20" plus it's extremely affordable when I need a lot, but not too much. They offer a ton of colors which you can check out by clicking right here.

4. I had ordered the Siser Easyweed Bright Red from them for a previous project already and it worked wonderfully for this as well.

5. Same for the Siser Easyweed Black.

If you're not looking to order in bulk, you can pick those up at your local Michael's and they will allow you to use their 40% coupons on the rolls. The roll there is $19.99 though and for a couple extra bucks ($23.99) you can get 5 yards from instead. To me, that just seems like the better value. Plus you get free shipping on order $34.95 and over through them. They're not as quick as running into the store or just ordering off Amazon, but it's worth the few extra days for standard shipping to basically triple the amount of HTV you're getting.

I had a more successful "photo shoot" with my little for the Toddler-Saurus shirt I made last week, so I'll have to try again to get some better photos when I can actually take her outside with the bucket of balls (they keep claiming spring is coming, but we have yet to see it here in NW Indiana). But, I'm still her mom and I think she's adorable anyway. So these will do for now.
