K & K’s Chubby Cheeks
Introduce yourself. What is your shop name/url?
My name is Victoria Drake and I live in Salisbury, MD. I have two beautiful children and a wonderful husband. My etsy shop is K & K’s Chubby Cheeks you can find it at www.kandkschubbycheeks.etsy.com
How long has your shop been open on Etsy?
I opened my Etsy shop in October of 2009. I am very new to etsy and excited to get my name out there and provide mothers and babies with quality products.
Is your Etsy shop a hobby or a career?
My Etsy is a career. I started sewing cloth diapers as a hobby, then my husband convinced me that I should try to sell my diapers because they are just so darn cute. So I guess you can say that my shop is both a hobby and career. I love what I do.
How did you get started?
I started sewing when I was a child. When I started cloth diapering I found that no diaper fit all of my criteria. So I figured I would create my own with all the features that I love. I wanted a fitted diaper with wonderful and cute prints, that was also organic and VERY absorbent. So I began sewing and perfecting my diapers.
Do you sell your product(s) elsewhere? If so, where?
I have diapers in a local green baby store (Go Green Baby) as well as on their website (gogreenbabyshop.com)and I also do customs for those who contact me. I love doing customs and working with mothers to create the perfect diaper.
Do you feel that Etsy has provided you with a supportive community to sell your products?
Etsy has provided me with a great community. I am a member of the Etsy Cloth Diaper Team. This group gives great support and advice to be successful in your business.
What is/are the product(s) that you sell?
Currently I sell fleece soakers, training pants, one-size diapers, newborn diapers, and sized flannel fitteds. I will soon be including wipes, bibs, burp cloths, and mama cloth.
What is the most popular item that you sell?
So far I have been contacted the most about night diapers. Moms are looking for fitteds that will last them all night. My night fitteds have a cotton knit outer, organic bamboo fleece/organic cotton fleece hidden layer, and bamboo velour inner. They also include 3 soakers (two large soakers, and one small) and a snap down rise.
What materials do you use to create your product(s)?
I use 100% cotton knit prints, organic bamboo fleece or organic cotton fleece, organic bamboo velour, KAM snaps, and Maxi Lock thread. All of my diapers are turned and topstiched for comfort and durability.
Do you create your product(s) with the environment in mind?
I do create my products with the environment in mind. I use organic materials and try to create a diaper that cleans well and dries fast to help save on energy and time.
What makes your shop unique?
I think what makes me shop unique is that I am trying to provide quality products at an affordable price. So many times you see cute fitted diapers that cost a lot of money. I wanted to be able to provide absorbency and squishy goodness with it breaking the wallet.
What do you love about what you do?
I love that I can create such cute diapers, I love to sew, and I love seeing cute babies in the “Chubby Cheeks”. And I love that I can help my husband provide for our family
How do you market your products?
I market my products through social networking sites. Currently I am on http://community.babycenter.com/groups/a6701995/wahm_wares?
Why do you make and sell products through Etsy?
I make and sell products through Etsy because people are specifically looking for quality handmade items and I think that Etsy is the perfect place to find them. There are many women on Etsy who make wonderful diapers.
Victoria was kind enough to send one of her K&K’s Chubby Cheeks one-size diapers. Her one size diaper is madewith an outer layer of 100% cotton print and against your baby’s skin is 100% cotton velour. She also has added a hidden layer of bamboo fleece. This diaper is so soft and fluffy, you will love how it feels! Chubby Cheeks are super absorbent because of their fluffiness. K&Ks Chubby Cheeks diapers are perfect for your child with “chubby cheeks,” the diaper is stretchy and will fit around those chunky baby legs! If you have a tiny baby this diaper is not for you. You will require a cover to use this diaper, if you would like a cover for the diaper, K&Ks Chubby Cheeks also sells fleece covers for a very reasonable price of $6.00. I use a wool cover for my diapers that require a cover, but PUL will work as well!
I have made a short video to show you what the diaper looks like here: (if you are subscriber, visit the website to see the video)
