I can't comment yet on Dina's diapers, because I haven't received my custom order yet, but Country Cuttin's covers rock! If you haven't tried one yet, they are really truly great. They are reasonably priced, sewn beautifully, fit well, and last but not least don't wick! Her fabric choices are great as well. Oh, and a very courteous and professional WAHM to boot. Two thumbs up!

I got an order from Dina a few weeks ago, and I love her diapers!!! I wish I had found them long ago. I do still like my PUL pocket diapers for trimness and ease when we're out, but for around the house and ECing when I don't use a cover, these are the best.

She special made everything for me at no extra charge. The diapers are lined in microfleece, have hemp fleece in the body, and are a pocket diaper so I stuff them with a tri-folded flat of hemp fleece that she made to go with it. The outer material is darling--she has a good variety to choose from. She also special made them turned and top-stitched at the legs, and front-snapping. My perfect diaper! They are the first I reach for because they are so soft and comfy looking, and hold so well.

She made some contoured hemp fleece inserts, too, and they are so soft and absorbent. Much better than Joey Bunz, which get all stiff on the line and take forever to dry.

I also ordered some mama pads from her. I haven't tried them yet, but what a great design!

Everything was done and sent in two weeks, and she even refunded some of the money she charged for postage when it turned out they wouldn't cost what she thought. Great and timely service!! This is a big two thumbs up!

warmly,
Kam, mama to Meg

My Country Cuttin's diapers arrived and they are terrific! I'm so pleased with how they look and fit. Very well made and reasonably priced as well. I am especially pleased at how well Dina matched the inner fleece to the outer print. They coordinate beautifully and it's evident that she takes pride in her work

I have gotten 2 orders from Dina so far and I have yet to be disappointed. The first order was for 2 fleece side snap covers and 2 PUL side snap covers and one diaper I won on WAHMALL. The sewing is absolutely perfect! The fit is fabulous! These covers are cut to cover the diaper, nothing sticks out. I have found no wicking with either of the PUL covers, they work great.

The second order was for 4 fitted diapers. I love the sizing. I got the mediums which are 12-25lbs and this is great for my in between sizes babe. The fit so wonderfully and have plenty of room to grow.

She offers so many choices: side snap, front snap, aplix, turned, serged... sherpa, microfleece, velor... hemp, terry, sherpa soakers... fitteds dipes, covers, AIOs.... fleece, PUL, windpro covers... you name it and she can probably do it for you! She's a pleasure to work with as well.

I recently purchased a side-snapping pul cover from Dina. It's fantastic. The workmanship is superb.

I won a beautiful set from Dina; fitted diaper, cover with matching onesie, headband and socks. Also have won her mama cloth. She is lovely to work with and I will bid on her items and order from again. I have contacted Dina about a custom order once we are settled in our new home. Country Cuttins is one of my favorites, beautifully made products and great fabrics to choose from.

Once in a while she posts these gorgeous "set" auctions with a diaper & cover, matching bib & onesie... usually Carter's. I just died over a Lennon print & HAD to buy it for my new little niece. The cover was a bit small & didn't fit over the diaper well, she replaced it without even asking for the smaller one back! The diaper was absolutely adorable & the newer, larger cover fit perfectly on my chubby little niece.

I can't resist those special sets...

Side Snap diapers
Great fit, although as usual, the wings are longer than I need on my extremely skinny boy. His weight comes from his length, not his girth, so I must remember to size down from now on.
These diapers are so beautifully made. Not a flaw I could find. I got them with hemp soakers (inside the diaper), and microfleece inners, which made them wonderfully absorbant and stay dry, but we did have some stinky hemp issues, so I wouldn't get sewn-in hemp again, I'd just use a hemp doubler instead.
Front aplix turned and topstiched
Again, beautifully made. Wonderful fit with the crossover tab requested. I didn't know this, but you can ask Dina to sew the foldback laundry tabs down if you want. I would have preferred them that way, as after the dryer, they tend to stay bend forward.
Mama pads
I really like her design for these. They stay put in my knickers (don't twist or slide) and I haven't had anything leak onto anything, which is great. The design comes open to get really clean, too, which is very good. They do tend to come out of the dryer a bit mishapen, though. Kinda curled in spots. But when you reassemble, they gain most of their shape back well enough.

Overall, I love Dina's products. They are definitely top picks for me and her customer service, selection and turnaround time are excellent!

I thought these diapers were mediocre at best.

For one thing, my order took over a month to reach me and I was never emailed about it. I had to email and ask. By the time I received them I had forgotten what and why I ordered.

I ordered a front snap and a side snap and I am not impressed with either. The workwahmship is middle of the road and my dd soaks right through both of them.

The prints are cute and the fleece is soft but I would not order from there again.

Thumbs down from me.

I was a little disappointed. I bought one from the instock store and asked, both in my original order and when sending Paypal, if the size would be OK for my baby. I didn't get any reply, just the diaper, which turned out to be big enough for about 3 weeks of use. It was only reasonably made, not fantastic, though the design was very very cute. Mixed review from me.
