Review & Giveaway: Baby Penelope (Etsy)

CLOSED

Baby Penelope is a baby shop on Etsy that offers some very cute baby items at affordable prices. The Baby Penelope diaper and wipes case holders are what originally caught my eye. I love all of the fabrics that are offered and the price was nice ($9-11 depending on the print). While the items in a shop are what usually catch my eye first, I am even happier when I discover that the designer is one of the good ones! Faviola is wonderful to communicate with and I would recommend her to anyone!

I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to try out one of her diaper and wipes cases as well as a (surprise) bib from her shop! Faviola knew that we used cloth diapers and offered to make a case that was a bit bigger in size to try and accommodate the cloth! That suggestion alone had me very excited! She also allowed me to choose the fabric I would prefer. She offers a number of great fabrics so it was a tough decision!

I selected the first fabric on the Baby Penelope chart with gray and brown elephants.The package from Baby Penelope arrived a few days after it was shipped and was wrapped very nicely in white tissue paper and a Baby Penelope label. Inside was the diaper and wipes case as well as a coordinating bib!


The sewing quality on both pieces is excellent and I immediately broke out our diaper bag supplies to see what would fit in the holder! Our package of wipes and one stuffed bumGenius one size 3.0 fit nicely in the holder. It was definitely exciting to see how it fit. I also filled it with wipes and a few disposables and still had room for a disposable changing pad and a plastic bag for messy clean ups. I must say that I love the size of the diaper and wipes case holder!


One aspect of the diaper and wipes case that I have mixed feelings about is the velcro closure. I like the way the velcro is lined up going opposite directions because it allowed me to close the holder if it was more full because of the cloth or less full with the disposables. On the other hand, I feel that it might close more securely if both pieces went in the same direction. I haven't had any trouble with it not staying closed though so it really doesn't seem to be a big deal.


I really enjoy having a lot of our diaper supplies organized in one place in our diaper bag instead of just floating around. Yesterday we were at a family birthday party all day and it was great to just pull the holder out of the diaper bag when we needed to change W. So convenient!

While the diaper holders on the Baby Penelope etsy shop are made with measurements that are smaller than the custom holder that Faviola

I'm also so thankful to have gotten to try the diaper holder since it worked so well. The bib has been just as wonderful! The bib washed up well the first time and has washed well throughout subsequent washes. The back is a blue minky that coordinates with the diaper holder print. It is very absorbent and W has gone for an entire morning wearing it and his clothes are still dry underneath. This is pretty amazing with the way he is drooling right now! The size is also wonderful! So many of our bibs seem just too small, especially because drool drips when W is being held or is working on sitting up. But this is not a problem with his Baby Penelope bib!


If you're looking for a great Etsy seller, I would definitely recommend Faviola and her Baby Penelope shop! Friendly designer, great communication, quick shipping, and wonderful items! There is nothing better! Be sure to check out her shop and stop by the Baby Penelope Facebook page as well!
