Birdy's Boutique Review & Giveaway




I am so thrilled to bring to you a new up and coming Etsy Store called Birdy's Boutique. This store just opened in March 2009 and already has a great following. The owner of Birdy's Boutique Robyn has given me the honor of reviewing her Snack Saks. Wahoo!





As soon as I pulled the Snack Sak out of the packaging, I was in love! First I adore Amy Butler Fabrics and the one I received was the French Wallpaper. With muslin lined inside and a simple Velcro closure I could not wait to try it out. What else was in my package? That's right, a second Snack Bag. This one I purchased, how could I not, you can not have just one Snack Sak! The second one is also made of Amy Butler fabric, Sweet Rose Brown. This one was lined with nylon which made me wonder if is water resistant. Apparently it is and has the same wonderful Velcro closure.





My girls love using these bags. I fill the nylon lined one with grapes and the other with cereal or goldfish. What I really like besides being stylish and affordable at only $5.00, is that both my girls have no problem opening or closing the bags. I know some Velcro can either be too tough to pull a part or it just doesn't stay together. Not these Snack Saks, they are perfect.

Let me introduce you to the owner of Birdy's Boutique, Robyn:

Why did you start Birdy's Boutique?

I started Birdy’s Boutique because I wanted to share my snack bags.


What was your inspiration for making the Snack bags?

My daughter was my inspiration. We take snacks with us on the weekends and they always ended up in a plastic bag. I wanted to “go green” so I started looking around to what was out there. I had seen a few other snack bags, but they were boring and plain with no bright colors or patterns. I fell in love with Amy Butler and Michael Miller fabric because of their bold designs. The more I thought about the bags, the more ways I thought to design them. I thought the D-ring style was perfect for those small hands that like to throw everything. Mom could attach the bag to a stroller and know she wasn’t going to lose it or have to keep picking it up while on the go. I attach mine to my golf bag and fill it up with crackers. It’s much easier than trying to dig through my large bag to find a snack between holes. One of my co-workers came up with the idea of the flat bottom bags. That way the bag stands up on a desk so you can have easy access to your snack. I make the simple ones for everyday use. My daughter and I use a snack bag everyday for a sandwich or a goody.

When you’re not sewing for your shop, what do you like to do?

I enjoy spending time with my family. My daughter loves animals so we spend a lot of time at the Zoo and Sea World. During the summer, I try to make a little me time and golf.

Tell us something fun or quirky about yourself.

I recently took up Archery and love it.
