Bubby's Appliqued Onesie Giveaway (closed)

It's my pleasure to introduce you to Bubby's, a fantastic mom-run etsy shop.

The idea for Bubby's came to Jessie Rivers after her son's birth. When she noticed that the variety of clothing was much greater for girls than boys, she started appliqueing shirts for him. Then she started making baby gifts for friends ... you see where this is going?

Bubby's is truly a family effort for the Rivers'. Dad comes up with great ideas and color combinations, mom is the meticulous sewer, and baby is the inspiration/cutest model in the world.

Jessie's goal with Bubby's is to provide unique and fresh designs ... at a reasonable price. She says, "I am always aware that no matter how cute, a shirt or onesie will only be worn for about three months." (I'm glad someone realizes that!)

I just have one thing to say about Jessie's shop - her applique designs are clever. She just has some really original designs. For example, I love how she incorporates the negative space into this inquisitive panda shirt:


And we've all seen the necktie onesies all over the internet. But a necktie and vest? Or a necktie and suspenders? Cute, cute, cute.



All of the colored shirts are hand-dyed. The appliques are fused with interfacing and edge stitched. Everything is machine washable.

For those of you living in the NYC metro region (lucky!), items from Bubby's will be soon be available at Itty Bitties, a children's boutique in Hoboken, NJ.

So, here comes the giveaway ... one lucky winner will receive a Peace Sign Onesie (pictured above) in your choice of size and color combo (boy or girl).

What is your favorite Bubby's applique?

This giveaway is now closed. Thanks for entering!

Hands down the airplane appliqué (my husband is an aeronautical engineer!) or the birds on a wire. It's hard to choose.

But I'm going with the airplane.

The little guitar. LOVE it!

Amber said...

Definitely the guitar. Or the airplane. Or the dog. But seriously definitely the guitar. Especially since both my girls are already obsessed with guitars and ukuleles.

Holy smokes! I love her designs! I have to say that the guitar applique is my favorite, followed closely by the Rush one.
