Hi, I’m Kylie and welcome to Indiebird handmade for kids!
I am a mother of two bright, gorgeous teenage girls and have just become a mum again to a beautiful baby girl.
For as long as I can remember I’ve always loved creating anything crafty. That’s why I love handmade, locally crafted gifts and products.
My Mum has taught me many skills including sewing, knitting, cooking and with these skills I have created beautiful wedding dresses to gorgeous children clothes and dabbled in cake decorating for family and friends. But in recent years I have discovered the world of crocheting especially Amigurumi (Japanese art of crocheting or knitting stuffed animals). I taught myself how to crochet and I have been hooked ever since.
I’ve been crocheting beautiful toys for the past 3 years and now my hands are having trouble keeping up with the popularity of my toys. It has been a difficult decision to make because I love making beautiful items for kids, so now I have taken Indiebird in a new direction. I’m using my other skill of sewing and creating beautiful cushions.
Originally Indiebird was created by my sister (Veronica) and myself to provide positive, affordable and innovative ways for small businesses to promote their goods and services. Today Indiebird still loves to promote businesses that create beautiful handmade products by talented designers. Not only will I be sharing handmade children products that designers and myself create, but I’ll also share patterns that I love to use (so you too can make beautiful handmade gifts 4 kids).
Hopefully you’ll find something here that you like @ Indiebird handmade for kids!
