Anywho, Rebekah started her shop because she had so much beautiful fabric lying around her house, that she just didn't know what to do with it all. One of her friends suggested that she start making wetbags and diaper covers to sell on Etsy, and her shop was born! Rebekah's mom cloth diapered her as a baby, and she plans on cloth diapering her own children, so her goal is to create beautiful and functional products that mamas all over will enjoy using on a daily basis. Her philosophy is that being a mom is hard work, so she wants to bring as much beauty into daily chores and tasks as possible. I think that is an excellent goal, and one she completely succeeds at. Luckily for us, Rebekah has a wonderfully supportive husband who never complains when the dishes and laundry stack up while she works away in her sewing room!
Something I love about Rebekah's shop is that one of her favorite things to do is create custom orders. If you check out her etsy shop you'll see a listing with all of the beautiful fabrics she has to choose from. You can mix and match them, and Rebekah will create something totally unique for you. I think I will be taking advantage of this soon, because who wouldn't want a wetbag that is exactly the colors and fabrics they love? Not only that, but she is so friendly and helpful that your whole experience is bound to be great.
Rebekah sent me one of her small wetbags to review. Now when I say "small" you're probably thinking of your little wetbags that hold one or two diapers. This one comfortably fits three, possibly four plus wipes. My first impression of the wetbag was literally "Wow! It's so pretty!" The fabric is so different, and although we've never met, I have to admit that it was almost as though Rebekah had some kind of insight into what I would like, because the fabric is totally my taste. But I digress.

The second thing I noticed was how sturdy the bag was. Rebekah makes her wetbags with ProCare lining, which is a waterproof material similar to rain-coat fabric. It is thick, durable, and kept smells in the bag where they belong. (Thank goodness for the stink-containing fabric. My daughter has had some of the smelliest poops lately, and I am telling you, no lingering poop-smell was left in my diaper bag. yay!) I wasn't sure how this kind of fabric would stand up next to your typical PUL, but I really like it. I've never had any wicking problems. It seems like it can handle a lot of wear and tear, and you never need to worry about it de-laminating. Major bonus. I just had a wetbag de-laminate the other day, and it made me that much more of a fan of the ProCare lining. The other great thing about this material is that you can just give it a good wipe-down if it's not really soiled and use it again... which is great if your laundry gets away from you and you find yourself with no clean wetbags and errands to run.

The bag also had cute little details that set it apart from your typical wetbag. It had a colored zipper which coordinated to the bag's fabrics, and a handle that you can open and close with a snap. It is really well made, and has quickly become my favorite bag.

I honestly have nothing that I can say I'd change about this bag. Except maybe that I only have one! I plan on purchasing these for my friends when they have babies, even if they aren't cloth diapering. They would be perfect for soiled outfits or wet swimsuits. I think a good wetbag is something every mom should have in her diaper bag. You can also check out her products here and here.
