The Jilly Bean Jar: Fluff a Rump featured member and GIVEAWAY




Getting to know The Jilly Bean Jar
What got you started in selling your items in your Etsy shop?
I'm a SAHM who loves to sew, knit, and crochet. I'm always looking for affordable and cute ways to cover my kids in their cloth, and I wanted to share my creations with others.

How did your shop name originate?
My nickname has been Jillybean since I was a little kid, so it seemed natural to use that in my Etsy shop name. The Jar part came in to play because what I stock is kind of a surprise... there's lots of variety and choice, just like in a jar filled with jelly beans.

What is one piece of advice you wish somebody had given you when you started cloth diapering?
Don't be afraid to try different styles and types of diapers. What works for one child may not work for another. I used one type of diaper for my daughter, and had to switch to another type for my son since they had different body types. Don't get frustrated if your first try doesn't work perfectly. There are lots of knowledgeable people out there to help you - just ask any of the Etsy Cloth Diaper team members!

What is your favorite thing to do when you're not sewing/working for your shop?
I love playing with my kids. My 2 year old has the most unique and entertaining sense of humor, and it's fascinating watching my 7 month old discover new things. I also love sewing, knitting and crocheting for my family as well, and most nights you'll find me with some yarn and a hook or needles in my hand.
What is your current favorite item in your shop and why?
I love my rocket longies. The elastic waist band means they're quick to pull on and off a squirmy baby or toddler. The wool is soft and thick, giving it great protection from wetness, and the rocket design is cute and unique.

What is your favorite material to work with?
I love working with soft wool yarn when I'm knitting or crocheting. When I'm sewing, fleece is one of my favorites!

How long has your shop been open?
My shop has been open since July of this year


Personal Bio:
My name is Jill Giovannetti and I live near Chicago with my husband and 2 year old girl and 7 month old boy. I started cloth diapering when my daughter was a newborn, and I made most of her diapers myself. From there I moved on to knitting and crocheting longies for her, and I haven't stopped since! In addition to sewing and yarn crafts, I also love baking and I'm always playing around in my kitchen trying to figure out how to make things tasty and healthy.
