DAY 1 – Kicking off the Tour with a whole lotta smiles and whole lotta style is the Jimmy the bear tee by Indie & Sloan. Jimmy is lovingly hand printed with non toxic water based ink on a soft 100% cotton tee. He lives in the woods and loves catching fish with his ‘bear’ hands. At night you’ll find him around the campfire toasting marshmallows and telling ghost stories…
About Indie & Sloan…
Indie & Sloan tees are for kids with an adventurous spirit; those who like to stand out and explore and who aren’t afraid to get dirty. Each tee has attitude… and a hint of cheek, just like the kids who wear them! The collection boasts hand illustrated designs that are printed onto premium quality 100% cotton tees; pre-shrunk and sweat-shop free.
Indie & Sloan was established last July, named after (and inspired by) designer Megan’s gorgeous and cheeky little poppets. Megan says, “The girls designs are a bit tomboy-meets-princess-sass while the boys designs are cool, and quirky. Indie & Sloan’s ethos has always been for the designs to be age appropriate and cool, using high quality product, and supporting local Australian businesses wherever possible”.
Indie & Sloan will soon be releasing their winter 2015 designs. You can keep up to date on new releases via Facebook or Instagram. Cool characters who will be joining the Indie & Sloan clan include curious Kitsune the fox, Fillin the wolf, Pipin the rabbit and Astra the unicorn.

Pile in the van, strap on your seat belts, crack open a window, and feel the wind rushing through your hair as we embark on an awe-inspiring road trip across the beautiful Australian countryside; stopping along the way to meet 31 extremely talented and kind-hearted designers and artists. This v-dub has clocked up some Ks in the five years since we launched KID independent, and she’s still going strong!
You’ll smile, you’ll laugh, you’ll shop… and you’ll feel all warm and gooey inside knowing that each one of these artists has kindly donated their featured tee to the Cuddle Craft Collective charity project; providing a little bit of sunshine to kids in the Australian foster care system.
The tour kicks off today, with a shiny new t-shirt appearing everyday at midday.
I hope you’ll come along for the ride!

We have sunshine! Hooray for a bright, happy, warm, frolicking day (after a week of gloomy rain)! To celebrate, I’ve chosen to showcase a super cheerful hue today, lemon citrus!

Hello there my lovely friends… you’re in for a charming treat today! We’ve teamed up with Cheeky Little Fox to bring you a gorgeous giveaway! Chief designer, Anna, is a wiz with cute colours and precious patterns, and her current range has something for everyone. Check out our review below, and enter to win a $50 gift voucher to spend on delightful handmade hair accessories!
First up, let me extend a huge thank you to Melbourne mum Del and her beautiful daughter Tessa, who is three-and-half years old and has the coolest hair imaginable! Tessa was delighted to try out these hair accessories, here’s what her mum had to say:
“We received the Cheeky Little Fox handmade hair accessories today and loved them at first sight. The pineapples head wrap is the perfect length for my 3 year old’s head and it held back Tessa’s unruly mass of curls without a problem. Head wraps are right on trend at the moment and the pineapples print was a hit with both me, and my daughter.
The pink and gold hair elastics are a gorgeous quirky print and of a high quality. The soft pink heart shaped hair slides are so pretty, and look fantastic in Tessa’s hair. The quality and the finishing of the ribbon on the clasp meant that Tessa’s hair was not pulled when the clips were taken out, so that makes them a staple for our collection.
So pleased with all of these products, thank you!”
KID independent also tested out the Shabby Betsy and the special occasion “Bling” headbands, which are both perfect for pairing with your favourite dress for a swanky soiree. The Shabby Betsy is one of our personal favourites from the Cheeky Little Fox range. It’s just so sweet, and is available in all kinds of colour combinations.
The verdict… charming designs with exceptional attention to detail!
