Tarli Tykes

I've decided for the next few blogs to feature some lovely WAHMs that handmake their items.

I know a lot of people are a bit afraid of buying handmade items as quality can vary greatly and no item is exactly the same as another but I feel like my child is wearing a piece of someones art when buying handmade over massed produced by machinery items.

I decided to start off with Tarlie Tykes as every item has been superbly made. Tarryn and I had our first babies in August of '07 and we met through a parenting forum. At Miss M's 1st birthday she bought along a cute little blue skirted nappy cover that suits M perfectly and was beautifully made.

The attention to detail is amazing, you can tell they are made by someone that is good with a sewing machine and puts a lot of effort into each piece.

Miss C pictured above is in a reversible pinny, one side is a cute cherry print and the other a navy blue with white dot. I can tell this will be fabulous when we are out and about and if it gets grubby (especially as we have just started solids!) just turn it in the other way! No annoying tags to irritate bub or stand out when changed to the other pattern.

Below is Miss J's skirt, don't mind my photography but I wanted to show the detail in the little butterflies all over the skirt. They are much nicer than my photography skills can show. I love the box pleats and the elastic waist makes it easy for J to be able to get it on and off herself.

Miss M's 2nd Tarlie Tykes item is this beautiful pink dress below. So easy to get on a wriggly toddler and great for playing in. She has it over her bathers in this picture. I love the colour and the cut, can easily be worn for dressed up moments or just for playing in as its a beautiful, light material.

I think Tarlie Tykes might become a regular in our wardrobes with the great quality, designs and prices. If you can't find the colours/material you want in one of the products try asking Tarryn on her page to see if she can accomodate. Make sure you also check out the boys items as there are plenty available and with 2 cute boy models herself all the designs are tried and tested.

Keep up to date with what's happening on Tarlie Tykes facebook page.
