Sponsor Spotlight: Comfybuns Custom-Cloth Wipes {Giveaway}

My first step in cloth diapering was of course cloth diapers.  Now our family has taken the plunge into Cloth Wipes.  The verdict?  Not bad or hard at all.  There are some prepping and steps that you do have to do, but the pay off is worth it.  I am so thankful to Comfybuns for providing us our FIRST EVER Cloth wipes!  Thank you for breaking the ice with your flannel wipes!

Double Sided Flannel Wipes:
Our first set of wipes has come from none other than Comfybuns!  Comfybuns has double sided flannel wipes that come in different sizes.  The size that I am finding to like the best right now is the 7.5x4.5 wipe.  It fits in my hand, and is not too big for small jobs and is great for big jobs.  I do find that for really big messy jobs that I prefer her 8x8 size, but for the most part the 7.5x4.5   (5x7 is enough cloth for me.  The thickness of the Double-sided wipe is also something to think about if getting flannel wipes.  I love that she always doubles her flannel.  The amount of wipe solution her flannel wipes absorbs is just the right amount--not too wet and not too dry.  I do not feel skimped out at all using flannel.  If you sit down to compare a disposable wipe vs. one of Comfybuns double-sided wipe you will notice the luxury of having a Comfybun!  

 Our Experience:
 Our wipes have a Savannah Print front with a rich dark chocolate flannel back to match.  These double sided wipes, are very wonderfully thick!  I am finding that when I go to prepare these wipes to be put in the warmer, they hold the right amount of wipes solution.  They hold enough solution that I can safely wipe away the mess without having too spill all over the place.  Ultimately, I am finding that it holds just enough solution that my wipe sitting in the warmer is not too dry or too wet.  
 The "Perfect" Wipe measures out 8x8, and it is "perfect" for big jobs and small ones!  She also does a more travel sized "Personal" wipe that measures out to be 7.5x4.5 (5x7) which you can see from all my pictures!  My Perfect Wipe just got used, and you can see down below! :)

These handmade wipes  are passionately sewed and stitched together with love by Jessica a WAHM and because she loves sewing--it shows up in her work.  For handmade wipes, they are very evenly shaped, and have a nice stitch to them.  After several trips in and out of the laundry room I am happy to say--NO fraying, NO loose threads and NO arduous curling up of the sides! We are Loving the durability of these wipes! 

Since that fateful day of running out of our disposable wipes, I am a happy user of ComfyBuns Custom Cloth Wipes; and am loving that I have already saved money just by choosing to use cloth!  If you like what you see and are interested in getting connected with Jessica and getting some custom wipes, check out her on Facebook page to order to see her selection of fabrics and prints!
