Ouch Pouch Review {& Giveaway!}


**CONTEST CLOSED**
Karen lives in Poway, California and has been crafting for the last 15 years. She started creating whimsical seasonal pillows for local craft shows after regular work hours and opened her online Etsy shop, PillowSewCute, love the name!

This past June, the company she worked for closed its doors and Karen found herself needing to supplement her income.  She wanted to come up with something different that moms could use every day and throughout the year, something season-proof.  Says Karen, "The vision of the Ouch Pouch came to me in a dream, waking me at 3am. I knew I had to get busy."  Karen added the Ouch Pouch to her Etsy shop, and it took off.  Now she is in process of getting her trademark, copyright and patent.

To show us a small sample of her offering, Karen sent us six of her ouch pouches.  She has over 60 fabric designs to choose from, ranging from children's themes to stylish fabrics for mom.  An empty Ouch Pouch sells for $4.95.  You can also order a basic Pre-Filled pouch like the one I received for $14.95 or a Super-Loaded one for $24.95. See individual listings for details.


My pre-filled pouch came stocked with Neosporin, Sunscreen, Hand Sanitizer Wipe, Tweezers, Bandaid, Tylenol and a Lollipop to Make the Boo-boo All Better! 



One side of the Ouch Pouch is fabric, while the other is a see-through plastic and it has a convenient snap closure.  Measuring 3 3/4 inches by 5 inches, it is small enough to fit almost anywhere, which is why I'm glad Karen sent me six!  I'm going to keep one in my glovebox, my husband's glovebox, the diaper bag, stroller, one on the kitchen counter for babysitters and I'm using the last one for my purse to store my makeup! You really can use these store anything, but what a novel idea for moms.  At 10 months, Emma has yet to receive her first real boo-boo.  I know it is an inevitable rite of passage; I cringe at the thought of it, but at least I will be prepared for the big event.

The Ouch Pouch would be especially useful for a mother whose child has special needs, to store an inhaler, medications, etc.  It's like a mini-first aid kit, but cooler looking!

Do you love these as much as I do?!?

BUY IT! Get 15% off your entire purchase!  Just send Karen a convo and she will set up a reserved listing at the discounted price.  If you buy an ouch pouch but then win the giveaway, Karen will send you a full refund!
