Lulu & Charlie review and {Giveaway!}

Lulu & Charlie is a fabulous shop on Etsy. When I saw her Super Cozy Crochet Baby Blankets, I knew I had to have one! They look so adorable in the photos, but are even better in person. I didn't know crochet existed in such a plush, warm, and cuddly style. I love the yarn she uses, too, which adds a shimmer to the blanket. They are a great size for baby blankets, measuring 31x34". They are also machine washable for all that baby spit-up that's bound to happen. My baby loved playing and cuddling with her new blanket.
The explanation on Lulu & Charlie's main page is just perfect, "Some styles are crocheted, in honor of my Nana, while other items feature nostalgic and whimsical prints that remind me of my own childhood -- when my nickname was Lulu and my best friend was a little dog named Charlie."
Crochet items include the blankets, of course, as well as wash cloths and hats.
Wouldn't one of these hats be great for Valentine's day?These hats make those round little faces even sweeter. They are available in sizes up to 4 years, but she will make hats in larger sizes if needed.I want some of these "spa quality" soft crochet wash cloths. I bet those babes would just love being washed with soft cotton cloths. These are machine washable, so you can quickly use them again.Lulu & Charlie's sewn items include burp cloths, onsies, and minky blankets.
Her burp cloths are so adorable, with a variety of adorable pattens to choose from. They are made with cloth diapers, which I have found are the best burp cloths.There are also onesies sold individually or as sets with burp cloths. Isn't this little butterfly one sweet? She even has several butterfly patterns to choose from.I am a big fan of minky blankets, and Lulu & Charlie carries such cute ones! I love the vintage look of this one.Buy It!
