"Made With Love" Event: Two Sweet Potatoes Review and Giveaway Ends 7/24 (US)

About the Designer...
Hi I’m Nikki.  I’m a mom of two wonderful boys now 2 ½ and 11 months old.  They are my inspiration for Two Sweet Potatoes.  I’ve always loved making things by hand and first learned to sew from my grandmother when I was only about 8 years old.  I’m passionate about healthy living and keeping our natural resources around for our children to enjoy.  This is why all Two Sweet Potatoes products are made with organic fabrics.  This includes clothing, accessories like bibs and burp cloths, cloth wipes and re-usable snack and sandwich bags.

Review...
Two Sweet Potatoes has some of cutest handmade organic clothing and accessories I've ever seen. You'll find adorably designed tops and bottoms, along with bibs, burp cloths, cloth wipes, and Snappy Sacks reusable bags too! AND they're all organic! Oh yes, a shop after my own heart. I love it already!


Nikki recently added organic Snappy Sacks to her line of products in her shop. These reusable bags are unlike most I've seen that usually utilize velcro or zippers to close and are lined with a water resistant material. Snappy Sacks use snaps to close and have a printed outer organic cotton material, and a natural organic cotton lining. This set of Snappy Sacks includes one sandwich sack (7x71/2) in teal polka dots and one snack sack (6x4) in orange polka dots. There is no vinyl lining to expose your foods to potential chemicals (although most are deemed "safe"), and no velcro to get caught in your clothes in the laundry. 
 
I really love that everything is organic (besides the snaps of course!) in these sacks. If I'm really going to go "green" and eco-friendly, I might as well go all the way and go organic too! The material is very soft, and the sacks are serged in a very professional manner. These also wash really well in the washer. Nikki suggests wrapping gooey foods like PB & J sandwiches in parchment paper since there is no moisture resistant lining. Although you have 2 layers of cotton, you really don't want to throw in grapes cut in half, or carrot sticks you just washed. These work best with dry foods and snacks, or just dry off your carrot sticks or other somewhat wet foods. We've used these for crackers, cheerios, and a few other organic snacks we have. These would be great for cookies too!!

Oh, do you use a breast pump? Nikki also suggests these for storing smaller pump parts. I could agree more! I also think the sandwich size would work well for string cheese, some crackers in the snack size bag, and a fruit pouch (from Plum Organics) for an on-the-go big snack.
 

The only feedback or suggestion I have for these is to maybe lengthen the flap just a little below the snaps. A couple times I couldn't undo the snaps very easily and could have used just a little more material to hold on to. Not a huge concern and these are otherwise an awesome product!    

A couple things that caught my eye at Two Sweet Potatoes...
