Adorable Etsy Shop. . . Kate W Designs Review and Giveaway!

When we're on the go and Kirsten needs to be entertained for awhile, I love taking crayons and coloring books with us. I used to put her crayons in Ziploc bags, but they kept getting smashed in the bottom of the diaper bag! Annoying! Ever since we received this completely adorable Crayon Roll from Kate W Designs, I will never go back to Ziploc bags. The crayon roll keeps the crayons from getting broken, rolls up into a compact little size perfect to tote around, and keeps each crayon organized into its own little compartment. It even came with 16 crayons!

Kirsten loves it! She gets such a kick out of taking each crayon out of its compartment and putting it back in. Isn't this the cutest crayon roll you've ever seen??? I love the combination of polka dot fabrics and ribbons she uses to make the Retro Dot Crayon Holder. All of her crayon holders are on sale right now for $12! Not only is the crayon holder functional and useful, it's also cute, fun, and totally stylin!

Look how adorable and small it is all rolled up too! Just looking at this makes me happy!

Kate W hand-sews all of her designs using high-quality fabrics and ribbons. And they're all made to order, so you'll know yours is completely customized!
She has a great variety of items in her shop. I'd love to put this Christmas Lights bow on one of my girls for the entire month of December!

The Sweet Treat Cupcake bow is gorgeous! I'm really digging these color combinations.

The fabrics she uses are all so stylish! I love this Mini Blankie and Burp Cloth set, and it would make an incredible baby shower gift.

Kate W is offering a giveaway of one crayon roll of your choice to my winner!!!
