A whole lot of spring loveliness has just arrived at Smiley Organics and we’re absolutely smitten with this beautiful range from Little Green Radicals! Made from fair trade, organic fabrics in a perfectly playful colour palette, this range has a little bit of quirk and a whole lot of personality. My favourite is the Up and Away Jersey Tee, but I’m also adoring the patterns in the pants and dresses! Shop the collection at Smiley Organics.

We’re huge fans of Dr Seuss in the KID independent household and as such, this sweet little Dr Seuss inspired ‘Oh the places I’ll go’ tee from Melbourne-based Felix + Leopold has tickled my fancy. The range features several slogan tees, as well as pants and rompers, with each piece lovingly handcrafted / screen printed using quality materials and eco-friendly inks. Find out more here.

Happy Monday friends! Today’s handmade feature is especially designed to help you shake off those Monday blues! Allow me to introduce the very lovely Bek from Queensland handmade label Fluturi and the very talented Mary, a styling and photography wiz from South Australia. Mary is also mum to these precious little poppets (10-month-old Jude and 3-year-old Harry) who have graciously modelled these Fluturi outfits, with smiles that go for miles! Read on for all the details.
Bek from Fluturi makes children’s clothing, toys, handbags, and home wares, with a focus on professional finishing, bold colour ways, and quirky fabric combos. The thing that I adore most about the Fluturi range is the passion with which Bek conducts her business. She is a delight to work with and her garments are a true reflection of her sunny disposition.
Each Fluturi piece is made from high quality fabrics, with triple stitched side seams, attention to detail, and comfortable silhouettes that suit both ‘Sunday Best’ and ‘Everyday Play’. These garments are designed to last through wears, washes, and wild adventures and you can certainly see from this selection of happy snaps how well they capture the spirit of each little personality.
Jude wears… A cotton swing top featuring a Peter Pan collar and beautiful Japanese Kokeshi doll fabric, effortlessly matched with precious pink bloomers. This outfit is available to order in sizes 00-6 in a range of fabrics. Pricing is $35 for the top and $25 for the bloomers. Bek also offers larger sizes on request and can tailor to your child’s measurements.
Harry wears… An arrow appliqué t-shirt with matching mountain print shorts. Bek can make these shorts in all kinds of combos (plucked with care from her gigantic fabric stash) in sizes 0 to 5. Pricing is $20 for the tee and $30 for the shorts. Larger sizes are available on request and Bek can tailor to your child’s measurements.
You can shop for ready to ship handmade garments and home wares via the Fluturi Etsy store, or contact Bek via Facebook or Instagram to place a custom order.
A huge thank you to our models Harry and Jude, and their mum Mary. You can follow Harry and Jude on Instagram; their feed is an absolute treasure trove of fashion loveliness!
