Ahmelie {Review, Discount Code & Giveaway}

Introduction: Ahmelie is a wonderful shop filled with the creative outlets of it's owner and namesake Ahmelie, which means "Industrious One." Ahmelie has always loved creating objects with her hands and absolutely loves to sew. She loves bright colors, vintage prints and repurposing useful items instead of throwing them away.

Ahmelie loves trying new projects and shares many of them on her blog. Her shop is also filled with many of the items that Ahmelie sews on a regular basis.

Selection: Ahmelie carries a large variety of sewn goods including burp cloths & bib clips, coffee cuffs & snack sacks, coin purses, hand bags & accessories, hooded towels, blankies, lovies,  patterns and more.


Review: Ahmelie was kind enough to send us a snack sack to review for our Green & Clean Event. We love replacing plastic baggies with reusable fabric snack sacks. Ahmelie's reusable snack bags help to reduce the amount of garbage going into landfills and can be used over and over again!

Ahmelie's snack sacks are sandwich-sized bags. They are made of 100% stylish cotton fabric exterior and are lined with water and stain-resistant nylon. The tops have sewn in easy-open velcro for little fingers, but close securely to keep snack contained.

These snack sacks are easy to care for by turning inside out and wiping clean. When they get really dirty you can even throw them in the wash and line dry.

Each Snack Sack is approximately 6.5" x 6.5".

We chose to review the Chocolate Leaves print Snack Sack. We have been very pleased with this reusable sandwich ad snack baggie. The velcro keeps everything inside, but is easy enough for Emahry (3 1/2) and Jonathan (2) to open on their own. I also love that the bag is so easy to clean. Most of the time just shaking the bag out and giving it a quick wipe down is all you need to do.

Our family has used this snack sack many, many times and it still looks as wonderful as the day we got it. The sewing is very professionally and consistent. I have no doubt that this bag will last a long time.

Connect: Etsy Shop, Website, FacebookTwitter, Blog

Buy It: You can purchase your own Snack Sack for Ahmelie for $7. When you take into consideration how many plastic baggies this will save you from buying and then throwing away, the price is very reasonable.

Special Offer: Ahmelie is offering a special sale to our readers. From now through Dec. 15th, 2010, A Heart for Home readers can get 10% off at Ahmelie's Website or Etsy Shop by using the promo code HEART4HOME10.
