Sponsor Spotlight – Maranda Lee Designs Review

I am thrilled to be taking part in the “In Honor of the TaTas” Event that started this morning! Our sponsor here at Mama on a Green Mission is Maranda Lee Designs

Maranda Lee has many different types of bags, diaper bags, clutches, sling bags, coin purses, key chains, changing pads (I must get one to match our bag!), keychain fobs and fun kid gear! The fabric choices that are available are just amazing! There are so many vibrant colors and so many gorgeous fabrics! 
We chose to review the Emma diaper bag from Maranda Lee. The first thing I loved about this was actually the fabric choices. I was thrilled to find out they have organic fabric choices available, so of course we chose an organic fabric! I chose the circle pattern on the outside of the bag and told Maranda to surprise me with the matching fabric. She made a great choice! I love way these two fabrics go together and besides that, she did an amazing job making this bag. The fabrics she has are great choices and are super fashionable!
Let me tell you about another custom made bag experience I had when I was pregnant with my son so you’ll understand just how wonderful Maranda Lee is. I found this lady who had a company and she made custom bags that looked super nice and cute online. I spent about $130 on two custom diaper bags and I was so excited to get those bags. When I received them in the mail I was incredibly disappointed. They had no structure at all…what I mean by that is when I sat them down, if there wasn’t much in the bags, they collapsed. The material looked faded and old. I couldn’t believe how much different they were than what they looked like online. So, to end that story, that made me wonder what the Maranda Lee bag would REALLY be like when I received it. When I received this bag in the mail, I was beyond thrilled, excited and pleased and any other great mood description you can think of! This bag IS AMAZING! It has great structure, the material is GORGEOUS, the bag is absolutely one of the best quality bags I have ever received. 
This bag has an amazing amount of room and great pocket placement! The above picture is the inside of the bag when it was pretty much empty. (It didn’t stay this way for long, trust me!) There are three pockets on each side. We are able to fit all of the following in this bag:
  • 2 bibs
  • 2 wash cloths
  • 1 travel wipes container
  • 1 travel Kleenex pack
  • 1 travel size hand sanitizer
  • 1 sun screen
  • 1 diaper rash ointment 
  • 1 container of Puffs for snacks on the go 
  • 1 package of Boogie Wipes 
  • 1 Onsie 
  • 1-2 extra outfits
  • 3 disposable diapers 
  • 3-4 cloth diapers 
  • 1 small wet bag for cloth diapers 
  • 2-3 small toys
  • 1 comb
  • 1 travel size hand soap

Now that is an amazing amount of items to comfortably fit into a diaper bag! I know you can’t see every item in there, but they are all there, trust me! Besides the six interior pockets, there is also a place to put baby’s pacifier! It even has a snap closure, which we don’t really use often, but it’s there if you need it. It is cleverly designed for the busy mama on the go to be able to organize all of baby’s necessities while out and about. It is incredibly stylish and I have gotten many compliments on it in stores and at the park! I even keep Maranda Lee business cards in a pocket and have given them out!

    Thanks

  2. Hello, it’s been a while since you posted this review but I was wondering if you can share how the Maranda Bag held up over time and use. I am interested in purchasing a bag I just want to find reviews on actual use of the bag over time and not just the new bag. Please let me know. Thanks!

    • Hello! Sure! I used this bag continuously for about nine months before changing off and on with another bag and it held up GREAT! It has no snags, holes, or stitches coming undone. It still looks like new in terms of how it’s holding together. I am VERY pleased with how it’s help up over time. I have two little ones in diapers so I carry a lot of stuff around in our diaper bag so it really has passed the test with us! 🙂 Let me know if you have any specific questions, I’d be happy to help!
