Cupcake Covers – #FluffyXmas Spotlight

Cupcake Covers - Merry Fluffy XmasIn the beginning, I stuck to major manufacturers for my cloth diapering needs.  Lately, though, I’ve been really enjoying WAHM businesses.  One awesome WAHM business that makes great products is Cupcake Covers.

Cupcake Covers is an Etsy store that has a variety of mom and family products.  She started out with just nursing covers (or “cupcake covers”), but has since expanded.  Now Cupcake Covers offers snack bags, cloth wipes, and wet bags… among other things.  I’ve got one of her wet bags in my stash (and did a review of it), which is absolutely amazing.  I actually like that wet bag better than I like my big name branded wet bags.

Her cloth wipes?  Gorgeous.  Her snack bags are just as beautiful as her other things, and her unpaper towels have me ready to ditch my Bounty select a size and go paperless.

Aside from the quality of her merchandise (which is equal to or better than major manufacturers), you can also get a wide variety of prints and patterns to coordinate with… well, pretty much anything.  If you’ve got a jungle themed nursery, she’s got stuff to match.  I like my travel wet bags to coordinate with my diaper bags, and the monkey wet bag that I have goes perfectly with the pink monkey toddler backpack that I use to carry my daughter’s things.  If you don’t see what you’re looking for, you can always ask.  She does custom work, plus she updates her inventory frequently.

Stop by Cupcake Covers and browse her selection!  What would you like the most from her store?

Cupcake Covers Wet Bag Review

Wet bag by Cupcake Covers

I love matching cloth diapers to outfits.  Recently, I’ve also discovered that I love matching wet bags to diaper bags, too.  Actually, the idea of a matching wet bag has always interested me, but the big name companies that I typically stick with don’t really have anything that actually matches what I carry.

This is when I found the joy of Etsy shops… and Cupcake Covers in particular.  For Eudora, I have a small toddler monkey backpack.  It’s perfect.  It matches her nursery, it matches the fun that we like to have, and Norton thinks it’s cool, too.  Plus, it’s small and holds everything we need for a trip out.  Cupcake Covers recently sent me a travel size wet bag that is absolutely perfect.   It’s pink.  It has happy monkeys.  It goes so well with our stuff!

You know what’s even better?  It works.  I put it to the test when I went to my in-laws’ house for Thanksgiving dinner last week.  It held both kids’ wet diapers from the trip.  It contained the smell.  What makes the smell containment factor even better is that I forgot to put the wet diapers in the wash with the rest of them that night.  They stayed in the wet bag for an additional two days.  The smell and wet were still contained.

When I washed my Cupcake Covers wet bag, I was even happier.  The bag rinsed cleanly (no leftover soap residue) and dried quickly.  I left it to air dry with my diaper shells on my drying rack overnight.  In the morning, it was dry, but I put it in the dryer for 10 minutes on fluff with my shells to get rid of any residual dampness.  (My laundry room is in the basement.)

The wet bag has a design that I like: it closes with a zipper and has a handle.  The handle is awesome because if it became too full to fit in my little tiny toddler backpack, I can go ahead and attach it to the handle on the backpack with my mommy hook.  This makes the matching factor even more awesome.  As for size, I can easily fit five diapers in the bag.  I could probably stuff six or seven if I wanted to actually put some effort into it.

Cupcake Covers makes more than just wet bags, though.  Stop the Cupcake Covers Etsy shop and check out her shop full of reusable wipes, unpaper towels, diaper clutches, nursing pads and more.  You can also keep up with her stocking updates by following Cupcake Covers on Facebook.
