My favorite things-Part I

In the course of starting this new journey as a mommy who is not willing to compromise fashion for function, I've come across several things that I just love and can't live without. Over the next couple of posts, I'm going to share some of my favorite finds on Etsy, Amazon, and various stores and websites. Most of these accessories will be cloth diaper related, but some will be toys, baby products, carriers, strollers, and some funky jewelry that I found. One of the greatest pleasures I have in life is fashion, and I'm glad that being an unexpectedly hippy mom hasn't made me compromise. 

So, now on to one of my newest and most favorite cloth diapering accessories. Can you guess what it is? Here's a pic:

If you guessed lunching ladies handbag, close but no cigar. This pink explosion of deliciousness is my new wipes case! Chic non? I have it loaded up with my new cloth wipes as you can see if in the following photo.

This new addition to my diaper bag was designed and handmade by Charla of SewSweetAccessories on Etsy. I have been a huge of fan of Etsy after seeing some adorable newborn hats that one of my former colleagues had bought for her son. Since then, I've found tons of great handmade cloth diapering accessories and helped support working moms, which is a win win in my book. This wipes case just blew me away with how fashionable and functional it was. My mom couldn't believe it was a wipes case when I showed her a few weekends ago. Not only does it store your wipes, but it looks exactly like a chic little clutch! I've already got my eye on this little number, since a lot of my mommy friends are wild about owls right now. Can you say baby shower gifts? I mean, how many moms would love having one of these custom wipes cases in their diaper bags? Tres adorable AND functional.

I haven't tried putting my wipes solution in the case with the wipes, but I think I'm not going to, because I wouldn't want it to stain the fabric. I'm going to be on the lookout for a bottle to hold my homemade solution that goes with this little number. All in all, I'm crazy about this new case and I hope all the other mommies out there who are considering cloth wipes give it a chance after seeing how adorable and easy they can be! Cloth diapering can and should be chic.
