CurlyBirdie {review + giveaway}





I'm a girl who loves her shoes, so naturally when it comes to my girls, I have a little obsession. Cute baby shoes are hard to find, and once you do find them, they're even harder to keep on.





I have found an absolute gem of a shop: CurlyBirdie.







I know, they're just adorable! The brains behind CurlyBirdie is sweet Maria, a mother of 3, who lovingly handcrafts these beauties. She is obviously a master crocheter, but she is also incredibly wonderful to work with! Along with offering nine different styles (pictured above are Matilda and Lucia), she also offers a custom listing where you pick your very own colors! And if you're baby has feet a little on the chubby side? Let her know! She can adjust the strap for a perfect fit! (And my babies do have chubby feet :))




(Meet Julia!) They look great, but are they practical? Well, I put them to the ultimate test: a wiggly, roly-poly, squirmer of a six month old. Many shoes have attempted to conquer her feet, but none (not even Robeez) have succeeded. The girl can kick off her shoes!




But, CurlyBirdie's little shoes passed with flying colors. (Above is my favorite, the Olivia - on my little one's chubby feet!) In fact, she kept them on, even through nap time! And they are so soft and comfy, yet super durable, that she'll be able to wear them for a long time!


It gets better folks! Maria is so very sweet to offer the fabulous readers of The Ivy Twines a chance to win their very own pair of CurlyBirdie shoes!





To enter: Simply check out CurlyBirdie on etsy and see her beautiful shoes, and other little goodies Maria has to offer!! Leave a comment on this post telling us your favorite item!



**Please leave a valid email address - if you win, we need to be able to contact you!!**

    Good luck and happy looking at Curly Birdie!




    Giveaway will end February 18th at 11:59 MST. Winner will be chosen via random.org and contacted via email and have 48 hours to respond. Must be 18 to enter, US entries only. Many thanks to Maria and Curly Birdie for hosting this giveaway!

  63. First of all, I almost cried when I saw these...my beloved grandmother used to crochet slippers for me that looked just like these. She passed away before Hannah was born and I just know she would have made her a pair. My favorite (besides the Hannah's because of the name) is the Olivia. They are so pretty and delicate!
