I love handcrafted items. Etsy is the place for that. Unfortunately sometimes pictures do actually appear better than the products you actually purchase, however, that is not the case at Sweet Bobbins. If anything, I would say that the pictures do not do them justice, the products I received were actually even better in person. I was lucky enough to have received a wet bag, a set of baby wipes along with a super cute bib for baby G to review.
First of all, I thought the wet bag is very well crafted. I asked for a small one to review because I wanted something to hold extra cloth diapers that I can store in my minivan. It is just the right size for 2 cloth diapers and 1 change of outfit for baby G.
As far as the baby wipes are concerned, I only have 1 word to describe them, "Awesome!" I use cloth wipes for baby G's bottom when I change his diapers. I have tried a number of wipes, but these are by far my favorite. Not only that they have really cute prints on them, they are super soft as well. Having these adorable wipes has certainly made changing diapers more fun for me :).
Last but not least, I also received a bib for baby G. Same as the other items I received to review, I think the bib is great. Just perfect for my little boy! I like that it has 2 snaps for size adjustment so that I could still use it when baby G is older.
Overall, I was really impressed by the craftsmanship as well as the fabric choices for the products I received to review. Since I do a little bit of sewing myself, I do know a few things about fabrics. I am actually pretty picky when it comes to fabrics. I prefer shopping at speciality stores for my fabrics because I do think that paying a bit more for your fabric makes a huge difference. What I noticed about Sweet Bobbins is that this Etsy shop owner feel the same way I do because I could see and feel from the products that a lot of thought went into the fabrics she selected for the items she created.
I am a fan of her products and I would recommend her shop without any hesitation. Be sure to stop by Sweet Bobbins and check out all of the cute items the shop offers.
Many thanks to Sweet Bobbins. The etsy shop has generously offered a set of 6 baby wipes as a giveaway prize to one of my lucky readers (US residents only please).
