I was contacted a few weeks ago by Amy, owner of Strawberries ‘N’ Sunshine, asking if I would be interested in doing a review and giveaway for her covers! Was I?! I was blown away that someone was contacting me! After sending out emails by the tens every day asking for products to review, I couldn’t believe this one came so easy! Just after I emailed her back agreeing, I became a fan of her FaceBook page and won a fitted to go with the cover I was going to review!
This is from Amy’s website:
My name is Amy, I have been married for 19 years to Jamie and we are the proud parents of five daughters and one son. Cloth diapers are made on request and I will sometimes offer some in stock or an occasion custom slot. If you are interested in custom orders for diapers, please contact me.
I enjoy making Sunshine Sacks and take pride in making something that is reusable and budget-friendly. My kids use them and we sometimes give them as gifts. They are simple and easy for little hands to use as well as easy to care for. They are great for snacks, sandwiches, knitting or other craft supplies, make up, etc.
I hope to offer hand knit items in the fall/winter of 2010.
I asked for a cover in the Candy Corn print, just because of the time of year that it is. And the diaper is in Jesus Love Me Print, which is an adorable sunny yellow with rainbows and little sayings about how much Jesus loves me. The cover fits wonderfully! I have tried it over the Strawberries ‘N’ Sunshine fitted, a Robyn’s Sweet Cheeks Diapers Fitted, a Nifty Nappy Fitted and my own flat fold diapers. It covered every diaper well with no leaks, and was very trim! No bubble butt!
The cover is very well made! I could not find a single missed seam, and there is a cute little Strawberries ‘N’ Sunshine tag on it! The inside is amazingly soft Suede-cloth material.
Doesn’t that look soft! It’s as soft as it looks too!
The diaper is also very well made, no dropped stitches and very adsorbent! But I thought it could use a few more snaps and needed to be just a tad bit wider! When I told Amy this she was quick to come up with a new wider design that has more snaps on the back flaps to hold the front flaps up. Now if I can just come up with a paycheck to order another or two or three :o)
Amy also makes Sunshine Sacks, reusable snack and sandwich bags that have PUL between two layers of fabric to keep your snacks and sandwiches dry. And these cute little travel wipes.. which happen to fit just right inside a Sunshine Sandwich Sack.. :o) I I keep mine in there inside the diaper bag, so they stay clean. If I know I will use them while out, I wet them before putting them in the sack. They stay wet all day, but the sack keeps them from getting anything else wet. And it doesn’t take up a lot of room!
The Patriotic Print matches my diaper bag perfectly, and the travel wipes are very soft and absorbent. The clean up poo mess very quickly, and I rarely need more then one! Which is nice when your in the grocery store with 6 kids and baby fills her diaper!
