Giveaway Week Day 2: Uff Da Designs

Once upon a time, there was a girl named Emily who had the most adorable daughter ever in the whole wide world. Because her kid was too cute for normal baby clothes, Emily started sewing her custom dresses, bibs, and hair clippies. (Also: WANDS!) When the public saw these adorable handmade goods, they demanded Emily make them available to the rest of us…and thus, Uff Da Designs was born. Now Uff Da has grown to include vintage baby and toddler clothes – something Emily knows quite a bit about, having owned her own vintage shop for several years pre-baby.

I’ve been internet friends with Emily – first on her blog and then on The Twitter – for a long long time now. Her daughter, Poppy, is only a few weeks (days?) younger than Little Evan. I could write a whole novel about how Emily is the best person on the internet, but I’ll try to keep this to a reasonable length. She’s super cool, super nice and super super talented.

Check out this baby dress:

FOR BEBEH GIRL! Plus one of Uff Da's trademark poppy clips!

And I’m not even gonna lie – I totally bought one of those poppy clips for my own self, waaaaaay before I was pregnant with #2. Hey, mamas like to be pretty too!

Recently, Emily sent me one of her baby bandanna bibs for Little Evan:

Isn't that orange and blue plaid PERFECT for him?

It’s a bib! It’s a bandanna! It’s functional! It’s a fashion accessory! It’s great for drool! Or milk! Or water! Or just to make your already super cute baby even cuter!

And um………..just in case your baby is a dog:

Please forgive me Emily. I promise never to do it again. Although Brutus thinks he looks super stylish in the bandanna.

If your kid isn’t a ginger like mine, there are tons of non-orange options too. Emily has an amaaaazing eye for vintage-y type fabrics and colors.

I love them all.

And today, Emily is going to give one of my lucky readers a free bandanna bib in your choice of fabric!

All you have to do to enter is visit Uff Da Designs and leave a comment telling me what your favorite item is. So easy! Well, except for the choosing your favorite item part – they’re all amazing. (Did I mention Emily’s totally internet famous now, since Girl’s Gone Child bought one of her clippies? INTERNET. FAMOUS.)

You can also read Emily’s blog, follow her on Twitter or like Uff Da on Facebook, but it’s not required.

Giveaway will be open until November 2nd, winner will be chosen using and notified via email, so make sure you use a real email address when you comment. Emily said she’s willing to ship anywhere so feel free to enter, my dear Canadian friends!

Giveaway is now closed!

Disclaimer bit: Emily sent me a bib to photograph and review for this post, but I bought the dress & two clippies from her with my own moolah. No additional compensation was received. And she really is the best person on the internet. No one can buy a title like that.

Day 1 is open until November 1st! Enter to win from Allora Handmade here

    Oh my goodness. That dress? I died a little inside. I have two boys with no prospect of a little girl. Can she start making dog clothes? I have a girl dog that would look precious in something like that. It just needs four holes instead of 2 :)

    I am so glad I found your blog, hon.

  21. Emily says:

    okay, its a tie between the retro baby floral dress… and those awesome poppy clips! I wish I was so creative. It makes me want to go out and buy a sewing machine. Oh, wait- I have two old ones in the attic that I dont know how to use. and then there is the lack of time factor. Either way, my little Nola would look so cute it these!!! thanks to gretchen for sharing this post with me.

  22. jill says:

    i love your little story of emily! so sweet. since i already have a bandana bib i think i would go with an upcycled hat. but then i would have to come up with a super cool idea for one since she’s awesome and does custom orders and all!!!

  23. Skipper says:

    if my girl wasn’t too big for the
    dress in mod color burst i would just love to see her in it! but i’d settle for a
    baby bandana drool bib in mod color burst for her baby brother.

  24. Tessa says:

    The poppy hair clips are my fave… I’ve been eyeing them for months!

  25. Chelcie says:

    OMGosh I love everything thing! If I had a girl, I would love to any of the mod dresses. My Little Guy would rock the blue and green leaf printed bandana big. So so cute!

    I love the minky soft baby blanket in bright dots

  30. andrea says:

    Totally agree: Emily is so talented. I love (apart from the bandana bibs) some cute red vintage overalls she had for sale. I cried myself to sleep when I tried to buy them and they were gone.

  31. Megan says:

    I have been envious of the poppy clip since I first saw yours. However, as you know, I am borderline obsessed with hydrangeas, so clearly I must have a hydrangia clip! Oh yeah, and I’ll totally let Amelia wear it sometimes since it will look so gorgeous with her blue eyes!

  32. MerHart says:

    That Dahlia burst dress would be killer on my little firecracker!

  33. I love the dress! But my little girl has outgrown that size! I would love some clippies for her though!
