Happy Friday! I hope y'all had a great week. Mine has been very stressful but its so close to the weekend and Im ready to let off some steam!
As most of my lovely followers know, I love everything monogrammed. I just adore getting someone personalized because it makes the item feel more special- like it was made for me.
Started by Emily Olsen- a craft and home good lover- E Olsen Designs is a wonderful etsy site specializing in monogrammed bows, pillows, and other cute gifts.
"E. Olsen Designs grew out of my need to turn my love of sewing and crafting into a full time job. Located in my childhood home in Atlanta, Georgia, my design studio allows me to create for my friends and family and now for the Etsy community. Every item is hand made one at a time with great care and a very "type A" eye for detail. One of the best things about creating with fabrics is that the possibilities are endless! If you can imagine it, it can be made! My goal is to make the world a little bit brighter and preppier, one bow (or monogrammed placemat) at a time. Enjoy!"
I am obsessed with bows. To me, bows represent all things feminine, youthful, and in some ways preppy. I love bows accents so when I found out that E. Olsen Designs made monogrammed bows I immediately became infatuated with the designs.
I mean look at all those adorable monogrammed bows. A girl can dream right?
From seersucker to polka dots, E. Olsen Designs has the monogrammed bow for you. With multiple fonts to choose from its easy to custom design your new bow. Each bow is fastened with a standard barrette clip or an alligator pinch clip.
When it came down to me designing my first E. Olsen Designs bow I left it up to the owner Emily. With a suggestion of seersucker she created this beautiful bow- just for me!
I just love the blue seersucker fabric with the blue circle monogram. Its so cute! The bows retail at $20 and are the perfect gift for the preppy girl. E. Olsen Designs also embroiders sorority letters so these are perfect for big little week. For all the sorority chapters out there, E. Olsen is the place for your monogrammed bows for recruitment! I can see Pi Beta Phi bows in my future :)
The bow is 5" across which is a great size. Its large enough to have the noticeable embroidery but not big enough to be obnoxious.
Well E. Olsen Designs was nice enough to offer one of my Preppy Student followers a chance to win a monogrammed koozie.
How would you design your koozie? What font and color would you pick?
