BittyKs Custom Sewing & Embroidery, Reusable Snack Bags, Review & Giveawayby EJ on 08/13/12
It's Shark Week! Here's the first of some great reviews & giveaways to celebrate! Having just received three teacher letters and school supplies lists in the mail last week, I'm sure all my super mama friends out there are gearing up for the back to school season - I mean, when they're not watching Shark Week, of course. There's plenty of school gear to be bought in the coming days and while backpacks, pencils and lunch boxes are likely on the top of your list, we can't forget the small stuff like a
stockpile of plastic throw away snack bags.
Hold it! Back up. Let's go green this year and invest in some reusable snack bags from BittyKs Custom Sewing & Embroidery instead. In fact, let's have those reusable snack bags personalized so they don't get mixed up between kids at school... and let's order them Shark Week friendly, please.
Check out this set of reusable snack bags, in two sizes, from BittyKs Custom Sewing & Embroidery featuring our friends from the sea. They are made from 100% cotton fabric in two super cute patterns and lined with water resistent nylon. Both feature a personalization and a zipper closure.
The shark embroidered reusable snack bag is big enough to hold a sandwich, 6 1/2 x 7 1/2 inches precisely. The smaller bag is great for snacks, measuring at 6 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches.
Here we are at the
Academy of Natural Sciences' BUG FEST this past weekend using our happy shark
reusable snack bag.
I love that I can send the kids off to school with one of these bags, then simply throw it in the washing machine for easy cleaning later. These are very durable. Once you get into the habit of using these reusable snack bags, you'll realize how ridiculous and dangerous the old plastic Ziploc bag routine really was.
Since we're celebrating Shark Week, keep in mind that plastic baggies can also end up in waterways, harming the environment and the aquatic creatures that live there.
BittyKs Business Bio
Joann, the creator of BittyKs Custom Sewing & Embroidery, started sewing around 8 years old. Her grandmother allowed her to pursue all the crafty projects she desired, every day. Her first project on the sewing machine was a baby blanket for her new little sister. Soon enough she was completing odd jobs left and right to save up money for her own sewing machine.
She writes that, "The next events were my inspiration. After becoming a registered dietitian, I headed straight for a job in pediatrics. I was fortunate to find a career working with children who had Cystic Fibrosis. These children need lots of calories, so we talked about snacking all the time. Several years later, I also found myself packing tons of snacks for my daughter who had multiple food allergies. A good friend said, 'You should look into getting some reusable snack bags!' The creative juices were flowing and I was inspired."
One year ago, Joann decided to stay at home full time with her family and she opened her online story selling her own reusable snack bags during that time.
You can purchase a trio of shark and ocean themed personalized reusable snackbags from BittyKs for $23. Other fabric patterns, sizes and options are available as well.
One lucky reader of Four Little Monsters Blog will win their own personalized shark and fish set reusable snack bags shown in this review.
