So hey, I am almost done with my ENTIRE STASH and I admittedly went overboard a bit with covers bc I didnt want to just have a single cover in each colour, so I tried to simplify by buying in 4s. haha. I sold off half my prints, so now my prints are just in 2s and my OS solid covers are in 4s (grey, white, grasshopper, kiss -all flips) I still wanted to have a pale blue in there, maybe a yellow, and now I am reaizing its just so. many. covers.
Any btdts have advice on how many covers is too many? I also wanted to use some wool babee greens/sloomb underwoolies/ playwoolies for daytime maybe, which means, how often am I actually going to reach for the pul over the wool?
Which brings me to my MAIN QUESTION is what do people tnink about the applecheeks envelope covers? I have all prefolds and flips bc they were cheaper, heard mostly good things, "keep it simple," I thought: Bam. dunzo. but now I'm wondering if the Applecheeks may really be worth the price? vs flips? like if it made sense to swap out even 4 flips for 3 applecheeks in whatever colour would be basically the same $$$ (except I scored most of the flips on sale). or even 4 flips for 2 applecheeks in whatever colour? I have zero Applecheeks yet, and before I go buying 4 in a pop of those, (yikes) which feels a little like jumping off the deep end, if I should slow my roll and re-adjust my stash.
Current size 2 covers:
(2) Blueberry capris - bears (2) Blueberry capris - foxes (2) Thirsties duo - woodland (2) Thirsties duo - blackbird (2) Thirsties duo - oak & acorn = 10 prints
(4) Flips - white (4) Flips - grey (4) Flips - grasshopper (4) Flips - kiss = 16 solids
Wanted to add (4) flips in mirror/moonbeam, or (4) applecheeks in a pale blue... and or (4) in a yellow. if I add 8 more solids, that puts me at 10 prints + 24 solids = 34 total. plus there's another very special print I found in a different brand that I'd love to get a pair, for 12+24=36 which obviously I feel like nobody needs that many covers.
Have I gone insane? Are the Applecheeks worth trying a few? are they worth converting all my Flips? or keeping a mix? do I need to seriously consider cutting back to 12+12 MAX??? Or the more, the merrier?
