WoollyBums on Etsy: A Review and 20% off Discount for Followers!

 If you've been hanging around here, you already know about WoollyBums on Etsy! I've already showed you her adorable, plush, bamboo fitteds, and you may already know that she's about to release a new exciting product: a side snapping AI2 diaper with lots of customizable options with the soaker made of the bamboo that she's known and loved for. If I've got your curiosity up you can look at Alicia's latest blog post to learn more!

However, as the name "WoollyBums" implies, Alicia does not only sew amazingly, but she also loves to knit soft, adorable woollies. You can find some of her works of art ready to order...

...and many more custom listings! WoollyBums offers custom shorties and longies with fun options like ruffles on the cuffs or on the bum, or even a face on the bum!

You can also order a matching beanie or cupcake hat!

Here are a couple of really unique and I think super cool knitted wool items that are now available at WoollyBums. I think these are just precious!

An acorn hat for the fall!

A photo prop for your newborn!!!


I am the blessed gal that got this beautiful set of of longies with a matching cupcake hat (which is now a custom listing!) I saw the above cupcake set in WoollyBums shop, I was inspired to do a cupcake themed birthday party for Lydia, with this hat as one of our gifts to her.

WoollyBums knits with 100% wool, and all of her longies and shorties come lanolized and ready to use! I enjoyed working with Alicia on my custom order. I chose these longies with this lovely picot edge in this LOVELY favorite color combo.

And of course the adorable hat:

My review:

As I've already mentioned, it's been great working with Alicia. She is very attentive to detail and offers great customer service. You can tell she really loves knitting and puts her heart into it! As she says in her bio, she makes each woollie with loving care and thinks about the little ones who will wear them!

I have been thoroughly enjoying these longies!!! I go back and forth between using them during the day and at night because they're so pretty I want to use them in the day with a pink shirt and bow (as you'll see in the pictures below), but they offer such a GREAT night solution for winter. They keep her legs warm and keep her bum cool and dry!  They work wonderfully through the night with my heavy wetter with a nice thick fitted.

One detail I was really impressed with was the tag in the back of the longies. It's so cute and so professional!

Alicia also sent these nice care instructions:


Here it is on baby...this was this summer right after we got them. Obviously she loves them!!! Right after a nice bath, who wouldn't love some soft woollies on their legs?

And here she is in them just yesterday, being a jumping bean in daddy's arms! (Sorry...they were all so cute, I couldn't pick just one!!!)

I also love the fit of the hat. We can't convince her to keep a hat on for long right now, but I can't wait to take her out in the colder weather with her matching hat and longies!!! Here she is with the hat right after she received it at her cupcake birthday party! She'd already pulled it off a little...we've got to get her used to wearing a hat little by little. Just trust me. It's a PERFECT fit!

Alicia is offering Cheap and Choosy Readers who also follow her blog a 20% discount through the end of this event (Oct. 31st)! Just let her know I sent you and that you follow her blog! I'd say it's time to get woolly for winter!!!
