CLOSED! Zebra Hoodies review and GIVEAWAY

Congrats to elliebunny!

Like most ladies, I love cute clothes.  Even when it comes to casual wear, I still want to look fab and have stuff that you don't see on everybody else.  And since I'm a stay at home mom, casual wear is pretty much my main wardrobe right now.

A little while back, I came across a website called Zebra Hoodies.  I think the Zebra part in the name is what hooked me in, haha!  Zebra Hoodies is an online store that offers embroidered and screen printed hoodies, sweatshirts, tees, and uniforms. She has also added a Bling line of shirts, and they are super cute.  And I promise, when you check out the pics on the site, you are gonna want some of your own!  This is a pic of one of the Bling shirts that she has done.



And then came the awesome part--I got to try out a hoodie myself!  I came up with a few ideas and emailed them over, and asked if I could be surprised with what the design would be.  When my package arrived, I tore it open and was extremely happy with the final design!  It turned out so cute, and I fell in love immediately.  Check out my hoodie:



Isn't it fabulous??  I love it, and it makes me one proud mama to show off my kids with my hoodie.  Not only that, but it also is super warm and cozy, which is great in the weather we've had over the last couple of months.

I asked Regina, the owner/operator of Zebra Hoodies a few questions about her business and here is what she said:

1) Can you tell me a little bit about yourself and about Zebra Hoodies?  My name is Regina Bell.  I have been teaching elementary music for 21 years.  I can't cook but I can sew!  I started zebrahoodies when my teaching salary couldn't pay for my very expensive but wonderful boys extras.  Band, Competitive Swim and Theatre.  I started making hoodies using zebra print and zebrahoodies was born.  I now do all types of colors, tiger print and so forth!  I also contract with a local T shirt company in my town for screen printing and I design the art and make things like T shirts for groups, baseball uniforms, softball uniforms and so forth!

2)  Are you the only employee?  I am a ONE WOMAN machine!!!
3)  Do you have a "most interesting" place that you have shipped a Zebra Hoodie?  I have shipped hoodies to NYC, Chicago and London!   However most of my hoodies go to small towns where people can't find affordable places to purchases these cute items.

4)  Can your products be found in any stores, or is it online only?
Currently I am only online at www.zebrahoodies.vpweb.com
However If anyone wants these in their store I am willing and able to do it for them!

Wow, I can't imagine being a teacher full-time, and then working so hard with Zebra Hoodies, too.  Regina is one busy lady!  One thing Regina and I both are passionate about is how important it is to support small, local businesses.  There is so many benefits to supporting small businesses.  Don't you love the personal attention you get when shop and you actually feel like you are wanted and welcome to their shop?  It's such a huge difference than shopping at huge franchises, where you can't even find someone to help you or get a friendly hello.  I'm the wife of a self-employed painter in construction biz, so I know exactly how important it is for people to hire him over a big corporation, because his work is what puts the food on our table, and is not going to fill the pockets of a rich CEO somewhere.  It's exactly the same with Regina at Zebra Hoodies.
Zebra Hoodies has a size to fit everyone from a child XS to adult XXXL.  You can choose your design to be put on several different color options for the shirt, and then pick what colors you want your thread or screen printing to be.  There is also several styles of shirts available, so you are bound to find one (or several) that will suit your taste.  And remember, designs are limitless, so let her know your ideas, and she will come up with something great for you.
All products are backed up 100%.  You also get a discount if you have a large order, and can find a price list on the Zebra Hoodies website.  No order is too large or too small!
I really love Zebra Hoodies, and working with Regina is great.  I have lots of ideas for shirts for my whole family that I want to get.   Actually, Regina is so great, that she is offering one of you lucky BeeCuties a chance to win a Zebra Hoodie of  your choice (up to $36 value)!!  Yay!!
