merging blogs..

With a fair bit of work coming my way lately and working on a lot of new designs.. running two blogs is proving to be somewhat challenging... 

So I have merged the kasiabear blog and kasiabear kids blog into one.. over at 

I will still keep this blog up and every now and then pop some of the projects I am working on.. but all the action will be happening over at kasiabear.. 

I'd love you to come and join me


my little stores are slowly getting filled..

where has kasiabear been? being a busy mum loving life and not getting to her computer as often as before to put it simply.. but busy creating.. so just to get up to date.. here are some of the little treasures i've been working on..

available at either my etsy or madeit stores.. 

if you like something here.. but would like it in a different size or fabric combination.. email me at to discuss a custom order.. 

my little pocket denim skirt..

I so loved making this little skirt.. I printed the fabric a couple of months ago, I made the pocket a couple of weeks ago and I finally got to put it all together the other day.. look out for a few more coming in this style.. I love it!!

so simple, so sweet and just classic..

kasiabear in handmade living..

Well, its been a bit of a crazy week in our household.. me planning my first ever trip away since becoming a mum.. my little guy being sick again.. and putting together my submission for handmade living..

And now that its all finalised.. I'd like to share my excitement.. I am so, so, so honoured to be a part of this creation and to work alongside other amazing designers and makers... You'll have to wait to see kasiabear's little creations till the book is released.. but if nothing else, writing this submission and thinking outside the box as a designer again has put a few more things in perspective for me.. so keep a look out for new and amazing things to come.. here on this blog, at kasiabear.. a little bit of me, my etsy shop and my made it shop..

drawstring bags..

This would have to be one of my favourite fabrics and I was lucky enough to make a little library bag for one of Ella's favourite friends...

These drawstring bags can be made in many different fabric combinations and sizes and are available through my made it store.. message me or email me if you would like kasiabear to make you one and I will email you available fabrics.. there are plenty of boys and girls ones to choose from.

little mod cord skirt..

What a week its been in our household.. I've only just finally got to upload the little Mod Cord skirt onto madeit and etsy.. so a very belated drum roll please... for the colour options that is..

and if you don't like my options.. go your hardest on these colours and choose your own colourway..

and then you come up with the end result in your choice of colours looking like this..

the Lelly Lou skirt in bold house graphics..

We had a beautiful weekend with my little munchkins and even managed to soak up some sun in the Adelaide Botanical Gardens.. Sooo beautiful at this time of the year.. Ella aka Lelly Lou wore the Lelly Lou skirt and it was lovely to receive so many comments from passers by..

Here are a few of my favourite pics of the day..
