Don't have a wet bag yet, but want to get a cute one at a discounted price? As seen in Pregnancy & Newborn Magazine (July, '09) and Wild Blue Yonder Magazine (July, '09), Petunias offers their trade marked "ICKY Bag." The Icky Bag is a zippered wet bag that comes in various sizes, made with waterproof ProCare and fun fabric with a lightly padded snap shut handle. The great thing about having a ProCare lining is that it is:
- Highly abrasion resistant (40 times greater than vinyl)
- Mildew proof
- Washable and dry cleanable
- and Soil wipes off with a damp cloth
Petunias doesn't stop at Icky Bags, though. They also offer 5x5" reusable snack bags, bibs, zipper pouches, organizers, and pocketbooks! Who would have thought that so many things could be made with fabric, waterproof material, snaps, and zippers? All of her fabrics are posted online at http://petuniasfabrics.blogspot.com/. I'm not sure where she's found all of this beautiful material, but looking at them alone just inspires creativity!
When looking through Petunia's other blog at http://petuniasbykelly.blogspot.com/, I found out that some of the proceeds from each purchase are donated to World Vision or CRWRC. This definitely warms my heart as I also support each of these organizations. If you don't already know about them, definitely Google them--they help provide sustainable living physically and spiritually to children and families around the globe.
My favorite thing that I've seen on her sites is actually not an ICKY Bag, though. It is a shopping cart handle cover. It's a brilliant idea! Less cumbersome than an entire shopping cart seat cover, and more interactive for your child, too.
