Every now and then you come across something, or someone who releases butterflies. Well, that’s how we feel about our latest sewing sweetheart: Juffra Toertjes. The mastermind behind Dutch sewing blog Toertjes & Pateekes, Juffra’s creations have us feeling like giddy little school girls. The simplicity of the designs work with amazing fabrics to produce cutting edge children’s wear.
Nothing rains on my parade quite more than having to throw a big bulky rain jacket over an outfit that I’ve put thought into. With this adorable creation, you can show off your outfit underneath + whatever colorful goodies fill your pockets. These jellybeans almost serve as accessories! I think I’d be much more OK with the rain if I got to go puddle hopping in this little bit of magic 🙂
This Elephant sundress just goes to show the power of a bold, unexpected pattern. The simple cut is precious on its own, but throw in a herd or two of pink elephants, and you’ve got a one-of-a-kind piece that really stands out from the rest!
How cute is this pleated romper? I can’t think of a more perfect play outfit. Plus, I’m a sucker for anything with pockets. Add a bird pattern and I’m sold.
Juffra doesn’t forget our little guys, either! This pineapple play ensemble has me craving sun, surf, and sand!
She even spreads the love to us big kids, too! Although her main focus is children’s wear, every now and then she will post a pattern like this. Big enough for me but staying true to that cheerful signature style that we love so much 🙂
