Review and Giveaway: Rustic Patriot Girl (CLOSED)


Cyndy of the Etsy shop Rustic Patriot Girl was kind enough to send me a pair of her gray wool bunny slippers for baby. I received the 0-3 month size, and let me tell you, they are the cutest thing in the whole wide world. The only thing cuter than baby feet is baby feet inside a pair of these bunny slippers! See for yourself:


Only they're about three times cuter in person. Truly, they are! You have to see their teeny tiny size to get the full effect. They seem impossibly small (just like newborn feet!), but at 3.5 inches, they're a standard size for newborn shoes. (Rustic Patriot Girl also offers them in sizes all the way up to 18 months.)



They arrived in a small plastic gift box, atop a bed of pink and blue confetti. How fun and festive! It included a card with information about the slippers, a tag with the company logo, and a cute little sheep sticker with the size printed on top. The box had gotten a little smashed during shipping, so I'm glad it was there to protect the slippers, which were in perfect condition.




The booties are handmade from an upcycled 100% wool sweater. I love that they are made using reclaimed materials, as this is a very eco-friendly option. I also love that they're made of wool, which is a natural, warm, breathable material. I was a little worried that these booties might be a little scratchy since they're made of wool, but as it turns out, they are luxuriously soft, like they were spun from a cloud. They feel more like cashmere than wool to me - any baby would be lucky to wear something so plush!

These bunny slippers seem to be very well made. The soft ears and button eyes are securely attached, and the shoes themselves are strongly sewn together with a very thick blue thread. I can tell they're going to last for a long time, and I think they're likely to become a treasured family heirloom. They're just so ridiculously cute! And they look great from every angle.


Buy It!
You can purchase your own pair of bunny slippers from the Rustic Patriot Girl Etsy shop. They are available in various colors, and in sizes from 0-18 months. Prices range from $29 to $35. Rustic Patriot Girl also offers owl baby slippers, sock monkey baby slippers, stuffed animals, and more.
