Zookies Review & Giveaway 2/2

About Michele as told on her Etsy page:
I am a stay-at-home mom of two little Zooks. I was an elementary school teacher prior to having children and knew that I wanted to stay home with them for a bit. What I didn't know was how much I would love being at home, so I was searching for something that I could do in my comfy pj's. We used cloth diapers, so the idea to make my own was developed. In my spare time, I enjoy scrapbooking, reading, sewing ( especially searching for fabric), and playing with a local community band.

The inner layer of the cover is waterproof PUL (polyurethane laminate)
and the outer layer is a 100% cotton

When I first discovered Zookies, I was new in the prefold and cover world. I had one prefold diaper and I was amazed by the absorbency, so I knew I had to have a Zookies cover! She offers the most amazing prints and I wish I could have them all! When I wrote Michele, I let her choose between the Jungle Babies in Pink print and the Cuppycake print because I honestly couldn't choose myself.

I was sent the Jungle Babies in Pink in a One Size with snaps.




This cover fits so well!! I love that its stretchy but firm, and hugs in all the right places. I do wish the tabs were a bit longer but I think that's a personal preference. There's no wing droop or sagging involved and it truly holds its shape until the next diaper change.They're also super soft and she can customize just about any way you'd like!

In the pictures above, I have a Bummis prefold and its bulky, so I prefer a Thirsties prefold instead. Holds just as well, but so much more trim!

With this cover being a One Size, it looks like it can get pretty small, and within the next month I'll be able to test out just how small it can fit when we welcome the new baby.

Michele is quite a busy woman! She not only makes diaper covers, but when visiting her ZookieCrafts site, you can also find wetbags, burp cloths & bibs, minkee blankets, reusable sandwich bags, pacifier clips, memory games, handmade bar soap, her bargain bin, and even new baby gift sets.

Michele has a new product available, the Infant Try It Package.
  • This package includes one dozen unbleached Indian prefold diapers, two handmade Zookies diaper covers in size small, and one snappi.
  • Diaper covers: 15" rise (10-15lbs.)
  • Snappi - size 1
  • Prefolds are 4 X 8 X 4 and measure 12" X 16" before washing. Weight is 7-15lbs.
  • Retail value $48.99 or $64.99 if you add a 14" x 14" wet bag.


Michele offers variety, and that's a favorite of mine for her site. You can choose velcro or snaps, hip snaps, panels for the prefold to sit in, One Size or Fitted, and a huge selection of fabric that's always growing!

Extra small: 13" rise (7-10lbs)
Small: 15" rise (10-15lbs.)
Medium: 17" rise (15-25lbs.)
Large: 19" rise (25+lbs)
OS: 13-19" rise (10-35lbs.)

I highly recommend checking out Zookies and seeing what all she has to offer. I know I'll buy from her in the future and I haven't had any problems with the covers I own. Great product for great money!

You can find her on Facebook, Twitter, Etsy, or her website ZookiesCrafts.com
