MiMyBelle (review & giveaway!)

MiMyBelle is an adorable Etsy shop full of various items: purses, wristlets, changing pads, headbands, tampon taxis (love this!), and pacifier pockets. Michelle sent me a train pacifier pocket for Squirt's "pa pas."

Oh let me tell you how much I despise when we cannot find his "pa pa" while traveling (heck, even sometimes at home!). I know that other moms (and dads) with little ones who have pacifiers/binkies/pacis/pa pas must have this problem, too. Baby (or toddler) is crying and you're frantically searching your purse, the diaper bag, the backpack, the bedroom, etc. It can make for some tense moments - at least in our house.

I'm not a sewer, but I do know beautiful craftsmanship when I see it. My pacifier pocket has "Paci" embroidered on the back. As you can see in the above picture, there is a swirly, quilted design throughout the train fabric. The stitching is very fine and well-done; the ribbon is secured tightly and the teething ring fits nicely over the strap of my purse or our diaper bag.

This is already a familiar sight in our house: as I've put these pictures up, Squirt is begging at my side for his "pa pa" (the answer to that is, not until nap time). It has already saved me numerous times on trips anywhere in the car (yes, I break our no papa until sleep time in the car and church). It's so much easier to find this pocket than a wiley little pacifier.

You can see more of Michelle's designs on her Etsy site and her blog. MiMyBelle is also on Facebook! I will share some of my other favorite items from her Etsy site:

for your tampons
Giveaway!! I have TWO pacifier pockets to give away to TWO of you! One is light blue polka dots with some brown polka dots (like the one shown here). The other has a whimsical fabric that would be adorable in a nursery featuring a palm tree, elephant, and other animals. Either would be fine for a boy or a girl - and both will be perfectly functional for pacifiers.
