Our #1 Summertime Bag Choice: Petunia Pickle Bottom's Wistful Weekender

*Mommys Craft Obsession received a complimentary Wistful Weekender to facilitate this review*

Springtime is around the corner and I know thousands of Americans are anxiously awaiting the snow to disappear and the sun to show it's beautiful rays. For some of us the sunshine means more outings to the park and pool and when you have a little one (or multiple little ones!) in tow it's important to have a bag spacious enough to tote around the essentials and a few "must have's" for the location where you're headed. 

Mommys Craft Obsession is thrilled to feature our #1 Springtime Bag Choice, the Petunia Pickle Bottom Wistful Weekender.


Although I don't discriminate against Petunia Pickle Bottom bags, the Wistful Weekender has proven itself to be one of the most versatile bags that I have ever owned, and is one of my favorites. 

Measuring at 17" (H) X 12"(W) X 13" (D), this beauty has more than enough space to pack yours or your child's essentials for a weekend trip, but the usage doesn't stop there! This bag has been used by moms across the country for several different reasons! To get more insight, I asked the moms of the Petunia Blossoms Community Facebook Group to weigh in on what they use their weekender for! 

"I use my weekender for heavy duty trips, weekends away...long day trips that will require multiple clothing changes (beach/pool) and I used it as a nursing pump bag for work as well" - Jamie P

"A Weekender is another must have PPB bag. On or off the weekend." -Maybelle G

"I purchased my Weekender to use as my hospital bag (treat to myself). I now use it for day long outings with my children and as a travel bag for overnight trips" -Jenn H

"I use my weekender as my luggage. It was my carry on for a cross country flight & for a weekend trip to San Francisco. Worked perfectly." -Bianca O.

"I love that the weekender doesn't look like a "diaper bag". It looks like a gorgeous overnight bag when I want to use it for just me and when I have my little ones its a functional and stylish bag for a long day trip!" -Pamela P


Now that you've heard from a few other PPB lovin' moms what they use their Weekender for, how about I tell you how I use mine!!

My Wistful Weekender gets used frequently in the springtime and summer months as an every day bag, but I should also mention that my 'every day' is mostly spent at the park and pool with my little guy. I love that with the weekender I can load up the bag with everything we need for a day out whether I be packing the bag full of pool towels and floaties, or a picnic lunch, big blanket, and some books. When we head over to friends houses for summer barbecues I pack Little Misters PJs and blankies, myself some comfortable pants to relax with my friends in, and anything we've been asked to bring over. With the Wistful Weekender you always seem to have space in the bag, regardless of what your packing. And I love that.


The Wistful Weekender I am featuring today is the gorgeous Lights of Lisbon print which made it's debut just a short couple of weeks ago in their Spring 2014 collection. I always find myself stalking the releases of the new prints but knowing that there wasn't anything I "needed" I had already talked myself out of buying before I saw the prints.

When I caught sight of Lights of Lisbon, my stomach did a flip flop and I knew I had to have something, anything, in that print. I'm a sucker for prints that remind me of 70's style "grandma-esq" kitchens or living rooms. Don't ask me why, I just go crazy for them! The lightbulb when on when I realized that it would be a perfect time to feature the bag I've been dying to tell you lovely readers about - the Wistful Weekender!

In true Petunia fashion the Lights of Lisbon Glazed Wistful Weekender features a portion of the print that is embroidered giving this bag a little "something extra" to enhance the print.


One of the many wonderful features about the Wistful Weekender is that this bag zips up! I know that for many moms out there, having a bag that zips is a must so that your belongings don't fall to the ground the second you bend down to assist your little one with something, and the fact that the Wistful Weekender does zip to me was something work jumping up and down for!


The Weekender (in the Facebook groups we commonly refer to the Wistful Weekender as just the Weekender so moving forward that is how I will mention it in this review) has side snaps that allow the bag to expand to accommodate extra items in your bag! Personally I am a huge fan of the side snaps because on the trips where my bag isn't stuffed full I like to have the sides "cinched" to give the bag more shape and to hold everything in a little tighter. 

Another huge feature that Petunia Pickle Bottom recently added to their Weekender is the hardware to allow your bag to be carried with a messenger strap. Until (I believe, don't quote me) Fall 2013 the Weekenders did not allow you to carry them with a messenger strap but I adore that Petunia Pickle Bottom added this great feature, it makes things a lot easier with a little one in tow and it also now allows your Weekender to be attached to the stroller either by using stroller clips or by draping the messenger strap across the handbag - if you do that, please make sure that the stroller isn't top heavy as it could be dangerous for your little passenger! 

Yes, the messenger strap IS adjustable!

As with all Petunia Pickle Bottom bags, the Wistful Weekender comes with a matching changing pad and a signature black embossed wipes case!

Now lets chat about what makes this bag truly incredible, the organization! There is one extremely spacious main compartment, 8 inside pockets, two of which feature additional pockets for organization including cell phone pockets (2) and a zippered bonus pocket! Included in the 8 pockets are 4 bottle pockets and 4 spacious main pockets. The bottle pockets are exceptionally large - with Little Mister we use to use Playtex VentAir bottles and I was able to 2 bottles per bottle pocket! If you or someone you know uses those specific bottles they could pack 8 bottles in this bag! There is also an extra feature of the sewn in key fob to clip your keys to while they're not in use! We all know that large bags tend to "eat" your keys, so I love this added feature that helps keep me just a little bit more organized!


On the front of the bag there are also two hidden pockets! These pockets aren't very deep but their perfect for storing things that may need to be reached quickly such as teething tablets or chap stick!


I have a confession: This is not my first Wistful Weekender. When Little Mister was about 5 months old Mr. Hunky was nice enough to treat me to my Passport to Prague Weekender which I immediately fell in love with because, once again, it reminded me of a 70's style grandma-esq kitchen/living room and I adored it. I am now the proud owner of two beautiful weekenders and cannot wait to start hitting the pool and park more often! 


Being in Arizona allows Little Mister and I to head out to the park even in the winter/fall months and for the Lights of Lisbon Wistful Weekender's first outing I decided to pack up and head to the park for a few hours of playtime and picnicking. Little Mister and I walked so I was able to test out the messenger strap hanging from the stroller and I absolutely loved it. I packed relatively lightly but had no problems with it being top heavy and it made my life so much easier than if I were to have carried it. 



For a 3.5 hour park venture I packed Little Misters wipes case, a cloth diaper (bumGenius 4.0), wet bag, the changing pad that the bag came with, crackers (stowed away in a bottle pocket), water for each of us (which had been removed prior to the photo being taken), my wallet, the coin purse from my Gooseberry Carryall (also by PPB), Little Misters immunization records, and my Marine Parents pouch full of mommy essentials (chap stick, hand sanitizer, etc). In the main compartment I used our PackIt lunch bag to pack two sandwiches for us and I also had space for the blanket that I laid out for us to sit on! 


Whether you're looking for an overnight/weekend getaway bag, a stylish carry-on, a pool bag, a park bag, or an everyday bag for multiples, the Wistful Weekender is a bag that will not let you down! I have used mine as a carry-on while flying with Little Mister, a pool bag, park/picnic bag, overnight bag to Nana's, headed to a barbecue bag, and even a bag just for ME!

  59. Every hard working mama deserves a beautiful bag to tote around all the secrets of being a great mom (diapers, wipes, lip gloss, change of clothes (for both of you). Who knows, maybe winning a weekender bag would convince my hubs that we deserve a nice adult weekend after 9 months of diaper duty.

    ReplyDelete
  95. I'd never heard of them before but I checked out their page and they have tons of awesome stuff! I love the prints. This is a great review by the way, the three things I tend to look for most in a bag are 1) if the top has a zipper, 2) that it has plenty of pockets inside and 3) if it can be used like a messenger bag, which isn't very good for back/neck/shoulder problems but sometimes it's super useful to be able to do. I love that you took so many pictures of it. Also had no idea just how big it was until the picture of it on your stroller, that was a great addition!

    ReplyDelete
  96. Great review. I have always wanted this bag and wondered if it would be big enough. Your review and pictures were great. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  104. I would love to own one of these bags! If they weren't so dang expensive, I would definitely buy one since they seem to be perfect in transitioning from needing a huge diaper bag, but still needing a few things for my little one whenever we leave the house!

  128. I would love to have the Abundance Boxy Backpack in Classically Crete. I have LOVED all of PPB's bags since seeing one for the first time right after my daughter was born but have never been able to afford one.

  130. I love the looks of the bag! #3 is on the way (after 6 years with no babies LOL) and I have to re-buy quite a few things - I keep forgetting about a diaper bag! I love the design of this bag, and it looks big enough to haul around cloth diapers, which is awesome! I get tired of carrying bags in Winnie the Pooh prints or PINK or BLUE LOL

  131. I love this bag. It looks very spacious and the patterns are very pretty! Petunia Pickle Bottom always makes top quality products! I enjoyed your review and learning more about the bag. I love the durability on the bags as well!

  132. This is an amazing bag! The detail in the bag is great for a diaper bag or for a busy mommy bag. The blog review had fabulous detail, really stressing the uniqueness of this brand. I would love a chance to carry one of my own!

  136. I would LOVE this bag. As a working mommy of an 8 month old, this bag would be perfect for packing my little's guys essentials for daycare during the week and for our weekend day trips when we are usually out and about ALL day long with Daddy! I find that my current diaper bag just isn't big enough when packing breakfast, lunch and snacks, toys, change of clothes and everything else that an almost walking 8 month old needs! It is filled to the brim and I usually need to pack a second bag, which is such a hassle if you could imagine! This bag would solve all of my woes! Thank you so much for your review and the chance at winning this amazing bag!

  137. If I could have a second PPB, I would love a Park Avenue Pocketbook in Plum Tart Cake! =)

  143. This was a really thorough, descriptive review-the close up pictures were great! I really love the messenger strap attachment-it really comes in handy when carting around little ones and you need to free up your hands. I also love how this "diaper" bag could be used for so many different purposes, as it looks like a high-end, beautiful weekender bag.

  144. I like the idea of using the weekender as my hospital bag. Also liked the idea as using it for day long excursions. Additionally I could see using this as my airplane carryon bag.

  146. Not only do the bags look convenient for travels and everyday use but the colors yell SPRING and make me more anxious for warmer weather and lighter clothes!

    ReplyDelete
  147. Petunia Pickle Bottom makes such quality, fashionable, and functional pieces. I sold all of my purses and have replaced them with this brand. Which means, not only do I love the product for the diaper bag stage, but I will be using these as my actual purses as they are that cute and have great organization.

  148. I really want a Flowering in Firenze sashay satchel, but those are no longer on the site. So I would choose an Earl Grey Chenille Boxy :)

  159. Im a huge petunia pickle bottom fan. One of my first and most used bags is a weekender in evening in innsbruck print. Its gorgeous, durable, and has amazing organization. I have used it as a carry on on the plane, an overnight bag, and at the pool. Since i now have two boys, another weekender would be perfect for me!

    ReplyDelete
  160. I love the organizational pockets - If you use it as a diaper bag, everything doesn't fall to the bottom. That's awesome! It's so nice keeping everything in its place, then you can find it when you need it :)

    ReplyDelete
  161. The weekender was one of my first and most used petunia bags. I have the glazed evening in innsbruck print which is not only beautiful, but so durable and organized. I have used it on the plane, at the beach, and for countless overnight trips for me or my kids. Since i now have 2 boys, I could really use another weekender for all the exra thing we carry around. Thanks for the giveaway!

  162. What is there not to love about this bag? My daughter has 6 boys (8 and under) and is always carrying her purse and several plastic bags around with the kids things in it. This bag would be ideal for her and I would love to win it for her.

    I love that the Wistful Weekender has a touch of embroydery on the front with the printed fabulous fabrics! I typically use short handles on my bags over my elbow-- this has these. I love that if my arms need to be doing other thngs the bag can be slung cross body or over the shoulder or even (if not too heavy) on the back of the stroller! I do have one of these bags now. It is Terriffic! I sure would like another one to keep packed with daily outing things to have at the ready for daddy or neighbors to use. Mine is mine! ;-)

  185. Wow! I cannot believe how much storage is in that bag!! I love the Petunia is so fashionable too! There is no reason for a diaper bag to actually have to look like a diaper bag. ;)

  186. I would love to have this bag! The pockets, zippers, the fact that it expands...and longer strap to wear messenger style...OH and of course the amazingly adorable prints! Perfect bag in so many ways!
