CONGRATULATIONS to Terri (Comment #4, chosen randomly by an unbiased 5 year old!)
"We LOVE all WCW products but my favorite is her sets, especially when she does it with a cat embroidery since we love cats around here :)"
And thanks to all our commenters!
Stay tuned for a new giveaway later this week!

Become a fan on our BTRT Facebook page to get the latest giveaway news
(weekly giveaways!)
and follow this blog, too, so you won't miss a thing!
(see 'Followers' box on left hand side). 
This week I am so happy to host a giveaway by busy mom and maker of amazing wool diaper covers and more!  Angela of Wild Child Woolies leaves me in awe~ not only is she a great business woman and artisan, but she is also the mom of 5 and homeschools, too. I am tired just thinking about it.
Angela's core product line are her wool diaper covers (soakers, shorties and longies)~ a product about which she is both knowledgeable and passionate (check out her blog).  But these aren't just any covers, in addition to being a seamstress, Angela is also the dyer, embroiderer and applique queen. Each cover is as lovely to look at as it is functional for newborn to toddler.
 In addition to the basics, Angela also does matching tees, and has a new 'Masterpiece' line of pieced and appliqued covers.
I asked Angela what inspires her and this is her candid answer (which I can appreciate, I *always* plan my children's story for Sunday services while I am in the shower!):
I can't say as though there is any one thing or person that inspires me. The entire world I suppose. I'm always thinking about the next creation, but most of my real idea formation happens lying in bed at night or in the shower (because I'm *usually* alone). I love colors and I see possible color combinations and applique designs literally everywhere.
 When asked about her plans for this new year, Angela is excited about several plans, including launching her blog and .com, overhauling her look, introducing a new style of cover, branching out on Etsy and into wholesale...
And since she has nothing else on her plate, I asked Ang about her family's favourite winter time activities:  Since I'm not a huge fan of being cold, I'm going to say staying in and having warm family fun like movie night or baking goodies. General snuggling and staying warm! It's not necessarily a winter activity but getting all cuddly reminds me of the rare day that we're all home in the morning and all 5 kids plus 2 dogs come into my bed and climb under the covers. There's usually a good bit of horseplay and bad jokes, and a little fighting over who gets to be *right* next to me.
Bliss♥

WCW soakers are our favorites because they fit so well. Any other wool soaker I have bought has been disappointing in comparison!

I have 2 pairs of her cuffed longies and I love the flexible sizing and how cute they are.

I LOVE the pull on covers with the extra layer in the wetzone. They are so trim and comfy, they are by far my favorite wool pull on covers for my heavy wetter! {Plus the monster embroidery on the bum of mine is TDF!}

I stalked her many times when my son was a baby, but never scored. I really love her Masterpiece covers - I think the rainbow stripe is my favorite! Her FB updates always make me drool. :)

My favourite product has to be the soaker with the robot! I happened to see it once and loved it, although it was meant for someone else and I had to send it on.

Moonstonemama said...

My favorite product of Angela's is one I already own. Shortly after I found out I was pregnant I bought a pair of Pumpkin longies and a Hangin' With my Gnomie's tee. Every time I feel stressed out or worried about this baby's arrival I go into the drawer of things I've boughten so far and this set always makes me smile. It also serves as such a great reminder that time must be cherished as it goes by so fast, looking at that set and then at my daughter who will be turning three soon it is hard not to see the miracle that is life.

alicia said...

I love the mushroom soaker. The colors are beautiful. awmcmahon1 at yahoo.com

WCW soakers are the BEST wool soakers I've personally used in the 2 years I've been cloth diapering my kidlets.

jaycee said...

i don't currently own any WCW, but i *love* the soakers with the removable snap-on skirties that she did for fresh this week. if only i weren't just coming off of my maternity leave and beyond broke! but hopefully grammie took the hint and got them for me. ;-)

I think it`s very hard to decide what product I like best. We use soakers, longies and shirts both LWI and with embriodery. But I think I would say longies becouse this is the esiest way of clothdiapering for us!

I love all of her products! Longies soakers matching shirts, what is not to love!!!

megin said...

We LOVE WCW soakers in our family. They are our go-to cover for night...never a leak!

Anne said...

I LOVE WCW. :) My favorites are the plain longies or soakers. My daughter wears her longies under dresses or as pants with a T. They keep her warm as well as cover up her diaper. We'd love to win a new soaker for the upcoming spring time as hers are getting too small now.

Nicole said...

I would love to own a pair of WCW longies...or WCW anything for that matter!
nicolebang@gmail.com

Elaine said...

I love WCW items but have never had a chance to use one. My favourite item has always been the lonely robot embroidery both on the soakers and on the t's.

Lee Anne Roquemore said...

I LOVE WCW soakers. I bought a used one that is too big for our little girl to use just yet, but I can't wait for her to grow into it. My favourite WCW product is the sweet pea soaker from the new masterpiece line. It's just SO precious!

I can be contacted via leeanne {at} weroquemore.com

jami said...

I haven't tried WCW, but I would love to! I love the solid color soakers.

Heather B. said...

We have loved the WCW shorts and soakers we've owned! My favorite of all times might just be the raspberry hedgehog soaker on the blog post! So adorable!!

twolittleseeds said...

Sweet peas or hedgehog hard to choose but I do love using wool interlock. Ubercute! Thanks for the chance, blessings xxx

Bj C. said...

I love all of her work! The cuffed longies are so versatile and fit forever, the soakers are perfect even under jeans and the shorties are a summer time staple as well as perfect for nights in the winter.

Kirsten said...

Wild Child Woolies are my favorite! I am amazed at the beautiful workmanship! The Masterpiece line is fantastic - so creative!

I love everything WCW! I've tried all of her products, and right now we are currently loving our footies the most. They are nice for winter, and help keep those little ankles and toes well covered.

I absolutely LOVE the scrappy soakers that I have purchased from WCW. We have nearly eliminated PUL covers from my house entirely due to her awesome interlock soakers!

Oooh I have drooled over WCW for some time now. How nice to see that she has a new blog. I look forward to her future posts. I'm lovin' the snail soaker in her etsy store! Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

Leia said...

I love her soakers for nightime but the longies and shorties during the day work so well with cute tees and I feel good having only natural fabrics that breath on my boyby.

I'm a huge fan of the monster soaker. It may just land on my little monster sometime soon if I can get sizing figured out!

Amber @ PĂșca + Pixie said...

I just got my first wcw longies and I adore them. They are sooo soft! I think my favorite thing I've seen are the cuffed longies because it seems like they would fit longer and stay cuffed.

Emily said...

I LOVE her hemmed longies. They are so cute and warm for pants in our cold winters. :)

Shannon said...

I love the polka dot skirt with a cover underneath- genius! I also love the soaker with the swirly snail. I have been wanting to try a wool cover for overnights with my super-soaking, 10 month-old. Thanks for the giveaway.
