Adrianna is a mama to three-a nearly 7 year old (with high functioning autism), a 3 year old and 1 year old. She left her job after having her first son, to be able to stay at home with him and be on call for him. It also gave her a chance to do what she really loves-knitting, crocheting, and sewing. She learned how to crochet when she was 3 (!!) from her grandmother. A few years later, her grandmother taught her to sew and to knit. She learned all the basics, and then taught herself everything else!
She opened up her etsy shop back in 2010, where it was mostly hand-knit items. After her son was born in 2012, she was able to get a serger, and really got into making her own cloth diapers.
She designs and makes them all herself. Nothing is exactly identical, since everything is made by her!
Although not everything is identical, from what I've experienced, it's all of the highest quality. Adrianna sent me a prefitted (prefold made into a fitted), a fleece cover, as well as a few fleece liners. Let's start with the prefitted.
Here's the prefitted on my son, who's about 25lbs at 22 months.
This is a one-size diaper, and even though we're on the biggest rise setting, it looks like it's going to fit for quite a while longer. It does snap down to be quite small, and Adrianna says on the website, it should start fitting around 10lbs.

We get a great fit with this diaper. There's never any red marks with this diaper, since the elastic is inside the prefold. There's just nice, soft cotton on baby's skin. But because there's elastic inside, there's no gaping at the legs, which means no leaks!
There's also a little elastic in the back, which helps to get a good fit.

As far as quality goes, this diaper is fantastic. The shape of it is perfect. It has three rise settings, and since it's a fitted, you don't have to have a perfect rise, since you'll have a cover over it anyway; but we get a great fit in it. It also has crossover snaps around the waist, which is super helpful for skinny babies. The snaps themselves are nice and strong--I don't feel like Myles could get them undone on his own, which is definitely a plus. :) And I just love the feel of it! It's nice and soft, and the more you wash it, the softer and fluffier it gets.
Adrianna also sent me an adorable fleece cover, in a soccer ball print.

Adrianna has lots of other great items in her etsy shop. And one of my favorite things is that she'll convert YOUR prefolds into prefitteds for only $3.95/diaper!! I thought that was an awesome idea and a great price! I might be doing that for our next little one....
She also makes some absolutely adorable hats! She asked if I wanted to review one, but Myles absolutely refuses to keep a hat on his head, so I begrudgingly declined. But if you have a hat-lover, be sure to check them out.
Adrianna has also kindly offered to giveaway your choice of either a sized (newborn, small, medium or large) or a one-size diaper! Be sure to enter below!
