strawberrybutton giveaway

One of my concerns about living in Ohio in the winter with a baby is his little hands getting cold. Since Elden is much too little for standard mittens with thumb holes, I checked out a few stores on Etsy. One of these stores, StawberryButton, had the cutest (not to mention affordable!) fleece mittens for babies. When Krista so graciously offered to send me a pair for Elden and an additional pair to give away, I was thrilled. I got them in the mail today and wasted no time trying them out on Elden.
These are are perfectly snug on Elden's wrist so he couldn't wriggle free of them, but they also weren't overly tight. He also didn't mind them at all and wasted no time snacking on them. Plus that pattern... so dreamy!
I'm actually planning on using these at night, too, since Elden no longer sleeps in a swaddle but rather a sleepsack with his little hands exposed. I am so thrilled with them and they can be machine washed which is a much-needed design requirement for a baby. And now, onto the good stuff... I will be giving away one pair of these adorable mittens in size small (6-12 months) to one lucky reader (U.S. and Canadian entries only please): 
To enter, leave me a comment with your email address and your favorite item from Krista's store (required). For one bonus entry, share this giveaway on Facebook, your own blog, or Twitter, and leave a 2nd comment (with your email address) telling me how you shared it. Giveaway ends Friday (11/23/12) at 11 pm EST and I will announce the winner using on Saturday. Good luck and make sure click over to StrawberryButton to see all of her cute designs! Thanks for sending us these, Krista!


  1. When I read "I'm actually planning on using these at night, too" I thought you meant for yourself.I'm glad our misreadings of each other's posts keep us entertained;)

  2. I love the argyle, like you got Elden. The blue are especially cute. And I couldn't help but check out the awesome mittens for when Leo is a little bigger!

  3. definitely argyle! thanks!
