PhineasGrace: Fluff-a-Rump featured member and GIVEAWAY!


 
Getting to know PhineasGrace

What got you started in selling items in your Etsy shop?

    Following the birth of our children my good friend and I started making many products for our little ones that we either just couldn’t find in stores or quite simply weren’t happy with the commercially available options.  It wasn’t long before we had friends, family and a network of other moms we knew encouraging to sell our products and so PhineasGrace was born.
How did your shop name originate?
    Phineas and Grace are the middle names of our children.
What is one thing you wish someone would have told you when you started cloth diapering?  I wish someone had told me how very important gussets are for keeping the messes in the diaper. 
What is your favorite thing to do when you’re not sewing/working for your shop?
    Being physically active, whether it is a swim, bike or run when I’m training for a triathlon, a long walk with the dogs or running around the park with my son, I am always on the go.
What is your current favorite item in your shop, and why?

    My current fave is my newest product the gusseted pocket diaper.  Not only are pocket diapers easy to use, they are versatile with your ability to use more or less inserts for day or night time use.  With the addition of a gusset this pocket diaper keeps even the biggest messes in.
How long has your shop been open?
    My Etsy shop opened in Oct 2009
Personal bio:    
    My name is Alex.  I’m 28 years old and in the final stages of a PhD in biochemistry.  I am married to the man of my dreams for a little over 2 years now and had to the most wonderful little monkey man 15 months ago.  Since my grandmother taught me how to hand sew at the age of 5 I have been in love with the hobby and ‘creating’ projects ever since.  Having a child had given my sewing a new purpose and renewed my passion for handmade goods, especially those which are sustainable and help keep our plant green for future generations.

Fluff-a-Rump Giveaway details!
(Drawing to be held Oct 6th, 9pm PDT) 

This week, Alex from PhineasGrace is giving away one gusseted pocket diaper (your choice of size) with an outer waterproof layer of PUL and inner layer of stay dry microfleece finished in coordinating soft fold over elastic with polyacetyl snap closures.  Insert not included. Retail value $22.50. Open to all countries - free shipping to USA and Canada only


Pocket diapers are the easiest and most versatile cloth diapering option on the market today.  Stuffing the pocket diaper with fewer or more inserts allows for customizable absorbency and quicker drying time than an all in one since the inserts are removable for washing/drying.  Once stuffed it is as easy to use as any disposable diaper, perfect for those reluctant parents/grandparents/daycare providers.  Want to reuse the shell?  Simply remove the soiled insert, lay a new insert topped with a fleecy stay dry liner and use it as an all in 2 diaper.  Add to that the unique feature of the PhineasGrace pocket diapers, gusseted leg openings which keep even the biggest of messes in and you have the perfect diaper.  Our diapers have a nice trim fit while still having a large size range thanks to crossover snaps at the waist and additional snaps on the arms to prevent wing drop.
