Kat’s Kreations Review & Giveaway {CLOSED}

It’s been a lil while since I featured a WAHM and I think it’s about time!  I really don’t remember exactly how I find Kat’s Kreations on facebook, but I sure am glad I found her.  And once you see some of the awesome things she makes you will be glad I introduced her to you as well!
Kat’s Kreations are inspired by her children!  When she was having difficulties finding items to fit her children properly she decided to develop her own patterns instead.  By looking at her items you would never guess she has only been using a sewing machine since 2004 – though she had sewn by hand for years.  Kat started out with pocket diapers with hook and loop closure that were turned and top stitched and has progressed to snapped and serged within the past year.  She doesn’t sell anything that they don’t use in their own home.  
After e-mailing back and forth numerous times I settled on some fabric that I loved and Kat made me a sampler set of cloth wipes and a wet bag to go along with them.
It was super easy for me to switch from sposies to cloth diapers.  In fact one morning we woke up and just started using cloth and a sposie hasn’t touched Sugar’s bottom since.  I will admit I am having a little harder time making the switch to cloth wipes, but Kat’s cloth wipes are making that transition a little easier!  Like I said she sent me a 5 pack sampler which included the following kinds of materials:
  1. single flannel
  2. double flannel
  3. flannel / cotton french terry
  4. flannel / bamboo fleece
  5. flannel / bamboo double terry
 I love the generous size of these cloth wipes – they are approximately 8 inches square and the stitching is impeccable.  After numerous washings they are holding up great and look just like the day they arrived in the mail.  The reason I am having a hard time with switching to cloth wipes is because I don’t want my hands to touch the yuckiness.  Yes that was very direct and to the point!  With that being said I like a thicker cloth wipe and one that is very soft.  And so my favorite out of the sample set Kat sent me is the flannel / bamboo fleece.  Obviously my least favorite would be the single flannel because I feel as though my hands are pretty much touching the yuck.  However, just by adding a second layer of flannel that problem has been resolved!  And so I really like 4 out of the 5 wipes!  And I really would like to get some more of the flannel / bamboo fleece wipes…. perhaps Kat can convert me completely to cloth wipes.
I also received a wet bag that matches my cloth wipes!
 First of all I love the color.  Just love love love it.  But on to the functionality of the wet bag, because that’s what’s important!  This wet bag is divided into two sides as you can see in the picture on the top right.  This is great so you can have your clean cloth wipes on one side and once they are yucky they go on the other side – so convenient…. just remember which side is which, hehe!  I haven’t had any leaking issues and it also contains smells very well.  When I first received the bag I wasn’t too sure if I was a fan of the snaps because I typically prefer zippers, but after using the bag for about a month or so I will say that the snaps don’t bother me.  I will be 100% honest… I still would prefer a zipper, but I also like the snaps and I use this just as much as my zippered wet bags.  One thing that I would like to see on this bag is a handle of some sort so that it could be attached to the outside of the diaper bag in case it gets too full, but I am positive that Kat could come up with something like that with no problem at all…. in fact I know she can because there are handles on her regular wet bags.  Oh and even though this wet bag was designed for the use of wipes I wanted to see how many diapers I could fit in as well.  I was able to keep a generous amount of wipes and 2 cloth diapers in this bag with no problem at all so this would be all I would need (in terms of wet bags) for an outing to the mall or playground…. though we all know the playground is much more likely. Hehe!!
I definitely recommend Kat’s Kreations for cloth wipes and wet bags!  And based upon the quality of her work on these items I bet her momma cloth, bibs, diapers, and other items are just as awesome too!  Speaking of momma cloth… I am slowly developing a desire to try some out…. thoughts??  Kat is giving one of my lucky readers the opportunity to try out some of her kreations!
