Please continue reading to learn more about Bent River Bobbins, which is offering our readers a giveaway of a $20 Gift Certificate

Bent River Bobbins is a shop operated by Heather, a work at home mom in Rock Island, Illinois. Heather makes a variety of products from household goods such as reusable baggies and sandwich wraps to personalized burp cloths and toys. When Heather isn't hard at work in her sewing room, she's caring for her two sweet boys, Liam and Jude and fundraising for her breast cancer fighting mama. (Little bonus: 100% of the proceeds from her American Cancer Society line go directly to the American Cancer Society!)

Heather gave us a large meal time set to check out! We are in love with our reusable snack packs from Bent River Bobbins. I'm truly surprised at how much my girls love these things. Who knew a cute little velco bag could bring so much joy? We've crammed just about every snack in these little puppies - from grapes to carrots, crackers to cookies. And with little hands tugging them open everyday since we received them, I can tell you they're super durable as well! The sandwich wrap is just as wonderful. I love that it folds out into a place mat so the girls can enjoy their lunch anywhere (even on the sidewalk!). The cute little design on the inside is just so sweet, too. It's so easy to close and the overlapping helps their sandwiches survive for quite a while. This was important to me since I make their lunches the night before we have something planned. The only thing missing from this sweet set was a matching napkin! We also received one of Heather's tissue totes. It's so cute and makes finding it in our diaper bag a breeze. The girls even know what to hunt for when a nose needs wiped! They're easily refillable, too! Heather stocks a host of fun fabrics to choose from, which makes shopping fun (though not easy!). She's also adding new fabric and products all the time. The creativity of this mama knows no bounds! All of our products from Bent River Bobbins are just fabulous. So much so that I've already purchased some Christmas gifts from her (shh!)!
