As a stay at home mom of two girls, Peggy feels very lucky to have her children with her all day while pursuing her passion for creating. Her oldest daughter, 3, loves being her helper and even has her own play sewing machine. Peggy realizes that encouraging creativity in her children is important and can be life changing. At the age of 12, Peggy was smitten with creating. Making her ideas a reality is what got her hooked. Ever since then, Peggy has been crafting and using her skills to make wonderful and high quality products. Making her customers smile and ensure their happiness with her products is what drives her to continue crafting and designing well made items.
Her store, American Country Designs, offers exciting and fun products for you and your home. Yoga mat bags, blankets, burp cloths, bibs and wet bags are just some of the wonderful products that Peggy has in her Etsy store. Peggy started making wet bags around the same time that she became interesting in cloth diapering her first child.
Peggy was so kind to send me a small wet bag in the print "Owls and Leaves" to review.
I agree with Peggy that a wet bag is a "must have" item when cloth diapering. Although wet bags have many, other uses (wet clothes, swim wear, potty learning accidents, I even used one for a leaky sippy cup), they are well known in the cloth diapering world. Whether you are using them in the house for dirty diaper storage until laundry day or just for out and about, everyone should own a high quality wet bag.
The wet bags at American Country Designs are just that, high quality. The passion for design and creation that Peggy has comes through with every stitch. All of her wet bags are serged with a 5 thread safety stitch for strong seams. The seams are also sealed to prevent wetness and odors from escaping. The handle with snap is a wonderful addition to this wet bag. Having the wet bag hanging from the front door was a great reminder to bring it along when we were running errands. I always seem to forget to bring a wet bag when I'm out and about and James always seems to poo when that happens. The kid has great timing! So the handle has been a favorite feature of mine.
Another feature that I think is GENIUS is the front pocket. When packing up the wet bag, I always put everything I need for the outing IN the wet bag. If James needs a change, I'm always left wondering what to do with the extras that I brought (i.e. the extra diaper and wipes). With the addition of the front pocket, Peggy has eliminated that problem! Love it!
American Country Designs offers wet bags in 5 different sizes with reasonable pricing:
7"x10"- On the Go Diaper and Wipes Bag- $9.95
11"x11"- Small - $14.95
14"x14" - Medium - $17.95
17"x17"- Large - $20.95
16"x30" - Extra Large - $27.95
(Front pockets add $1.00)
There are some specialty sizes also. Check Etsy for availability.
The small wet bag is the perfect size for running errands or a day trip to the grandparents house. We were able to fit 2-5 diapers in the wet bag, including wipes and a travel cloth wipes spray solution. Overall, I'm very pleased with American Country Designs' wet bag. And like I said earlier, a wet bag is a neccesity when cloth diapering. Go pick up one from American Country Deisgns.
