Wahm made vs factory made dipes

Does anyone else just love the wahm dipes compared to the big name factory dipes.
I got some xs fb's in today and wasn't really that impressed compared to the wahm nb pockets I had gotten (precious by april). THe wahm were much better made and wayyyy cutter.
I don't think I will be buying factory made anymore... every time I try I new wahm dipe I like them better.
Any thoughts or comments on this?

Re: Wahm made vs factory made dipes

I guess it's personal preference. I have had some WAHM stuff that I didn't really care for, but I almost always am disappointed in factory made stuff. I think there's something about feeling a sort of "personal connection" with the person who made it, KWIM? I always liked SEZ because I know that Ruth is a WAHM with 10 kids and she has other women working for her, so it's a more personal feeling with them than with FBs, KWIM? I guess I can sort of smile and imagine a pregnant lady making my Mutts, but I don't get the warm fuzzies thinking about a factory worker making another type dipe. Silly, I guess, but it's the way I am!

And I like that a lot of the time, you can customize whatever you order. I get really excited when I get to choose the outside print, the inner, the snaps, etc.

I'm a bit of both......I love my HH's but a WAHM pocket i got on ebay isnt that great, yet the homemade fitteds I got from a freind, and covers she made, are fabulous!

I might be partial, but I prefer WAHM stuff. lol I'm actually really excited. We started out with a bunch of Fbs in smalls (mostly b/c I didn't know any better) and now that we're going to mediums, I'm getting to buy a lot more really cute fluff!

Well, FB are my favorites

I've found that it's a dipe by dipe thing for us. I like both.
