Personalized Leg Warmers

The Polka Dot Store

As many of you know, I purchased a new 6 needle embroidery machine back in the fall. Since then I have been "collecting" different frames for the machine. As with most things, the right accessories produce the best results. While my grandson  -yes, I said grandson. I may be older in age but not in spirit- was here a few weeks ago, he was playing with inventory as I was trying to count inventory. He loved pulling the legwarmers out of the basket.

As I was putting them back in the basket, Max and I decided he needed a pair of the Fire Truck LegWarmers by BabyLegs and it would look cute to try to stitch his name on them

. Here is the result:

I think they look really cute so this option will be added to the website soon!Let me know what you think! 

 

Product Reviews

The Polka Dot Store

We have a new baby in The Polka Dot Store family.  Little Max is 2 1/2 weeks old and is getting lots of use out of his gifts purchased at The Polka Dot Store.  When we go on a buying trip to market, we try to find the highest quality products to sell in our store.  Three of our products we have used over and over the past two weeks are listed below with a brief review of the product.

Giraffe Everykid Towel by 3 Marthas:  This towel has been fabulous at bathtime.  It is large enough to keep Max warm so he won't get chilled while getting his sponge bath.  After taking the towel out of the dryer today I was amazed at how soft the towel was.  It washes great and honestly gets softer with each wash!

BabyLegs Newborn Leg Warmers:  Max has three pair of newborn leg warmers.  My daughter likes one design so much, she asked for two pair.  They seem to go with most of Max's outfits.  Since the weather is still warm here in the south, I didn't think we would need leg warmers here until after Christmas!  Boy was I wrong.  Max's pediatrician prefers for him to sleep with the thermostat at 70 degrees.  The leg warmers have been a perfect choice to keep his little legs from getting cold.  He wears them with his gowns, onesies, and sleep sacs.

Little Giraffe Luxe Burpy:  Max has this burpy in blue and it is awesome.  I could carry this burpy around all the time!  It is so soft and comes out of the dryer so soft it is hard to fold and put away.  You want to use it all the time!  Max has several styles of burpies from Little Giraffe and they all come out of the washer and dryer looking like new each time.

As time goes on and we get more use out of Max's gifts, we will keep you posted with our reviews.
