Beautiful Baby Bedding by Cheeky Britches...

Regular readers of KID independent will know how much we adore bamboo fabrics… So for today’s KID tested review, we’ve decided to share the Cheeky Britches baby bedding range. There are five gorgeous colours in the collection: oyster, sapphire pink, asanoha cloud, watermelon… and our favourite, spearmint!

Cheeky Britches Organic Bamboo Baby Bedding

In review today is the Cheeky Britches spearmint bassinet set, which includes a bamboo top sheet and an organic cotton lattice print fitted sheet (as pictured above).

There’s so much to adore about this sweet little set. Firstly, we love that it is made from bamboo and organic cotton, which makes it gentle on skin and breathable (which is so essential in a crib). Secondly, the top sheet has just the right amount of stretch to make the perfect swaddle and it’s so supremely soft and silky that you’ll wish your whole world was made from bamboo. Lastly, the colours are simply gorgeous! I’m obsessed with Cheeky Britches spearmint, as it’s so lovely for gifting and is perfectly unisex.

Cheeky Britches bassinet sets retail for $59.95 (with free delivery) or you can buy the bunny rug/swaddle separately for $32.95.

The verdict… Exceptional quality with modern, eco-friendly styling.

Made in Melbourne... with cloth and thread!

Over the past couple of weeks I’ve had the sheer joy of coordinating a project called Cuddle Craft Collective and on my travels I met the lovely Jenni Harley from cloth and thread. Jenni’s collection of custom made dolls are so enchanting that they make my heart sing (which is very fitting since it’s Valentine’s Day)! Here’s a lovely little peek…
