Maika Creations

This photo sets the tone - fun children's clothing that you can buy in Caroline's Etsy store "maika" that I share with you today. When I see clothes like this I wish Kaefer was a very little girl again... She would have loved this cute squirrel shirt:

Caroline is from Brisbane, Australia, and enjoys making fun children's clothing from new and recycled fabric. Her clothes are unique and all of them use an element of recycled fabric. Often she combines her second hand finds with contemporary fabrics from retail stores.

In her own words: "In my shop you will find easy wearing and carefree handmade clothes reminiscing a time when your mum made your clothes, there was no such thing as licensed merchandise or ridiculous slogans on t-shirts, you played in the backyard and rode your bike down the street to your best friend's house."

I would love that for my children.

Caroline also has a Facebook page and she blogs at maika.

These are just darling. It's the way it was in days gone by, when the clothes were sewn for the children. The quiet days, the good days. Very nice. Thank you.

How very special of your to feature a fellow artisan, Carola. It brings a smile to my face. :)
