Fitted diaper, Snappi, and Zookies cover Review!!! And Zookies Cover Giveaway!!!

This Review is going to go a bit differently than most. Instead of doing individual reviews for each product I am going to explain to you all my method of using the Snappi Baby Diaper Fastener on  Hurley's Fitted Diaper from Modified Momma Creations, with a  Zookies Cover. While also giving you my opinion of the products mentioned above. 
Snappi Cloth Diaper Fastener
Here is a little bit about each of the products.
A Snappi as most of you know is an alternative to using a diaper pin to fasten diapers that do not already have their own closures, such as fitteds, prefolds, and flats. Snappis are made of plastic "teeth" and a soft rubber material that stretches to hold into place by tension between the teeth and rubber. They retail for around $4 each. They come in a variety of colors and two sizes, one for babies and one for toddlers. They are available at several retail locations worldwide.

 Zookies Diaper Cover, By Michele Zook who runs her WAHM shop on Etsy. Zookies sells Diaper covers, reusable bags, cloth wipes, bibs, & burp cloths. Michele kindly sent me a diaper cover in the Woodland Friends print for review. Zookies is also sponsoring a custom cover of choice as a giveaway item along with this review!!! Be sure to go check out her store and buy something cute for your Little One.

My Experience:
Ok, I must admit that the Snappi took some getting used to. I personally use mostly snap closure diapers so using pins or a Snappi is a bit different for me. I have noticed the Snappi works best with a fabric that has a looser thread count so the teeth can dig in better. Hurley's Fitted diaper works nicely with the Snappi. I feel the Snappi leaves more marks on the fabric than my normal pins do.
 For those of you that are unfamiliar a snappi works by hooking the teeth into one side of the diaper, stretching the snappi across and hooking it into the other side, then stretching it down and hooking into the bottom, to secure the diaper in place.
Here are some pics of the Snappi in use.
 Lilly is pretty small so the snappi goes all the way to each of her sides

 Here we are all snapped up and ready to go.
This print is super adorable and the cover works wonderfully. This picture is taken after 10+ washes and being hung to dry. The only wear the cover has is some minor pilling on the brown trim. This is one of my favorite night time diapers because it is roomy for extra stuffing and is quite leak resistant.
Lilly really likes her Zookies cover!!! I think it is less restricting than some other covers I have used, has a nice stretch to it and is made from high quality materials.

Zookies has many many adorable prints to choose from,  I noticed on her Etsy that Michele will even make customs for you with material you send to her! I love that she has very fair prices for a nice quality product.
