While there are a million keiki clothing companies, there’s something that feels more special about clothes that are made by a local, stay-at-home mommy who hand-creates it all. It feels even more authentic to find her wares at a local craft fair. Mom Kelly Payne designs and makes appliqué onesies from vintage fabrics with hand-drawn designs of mermaids, whales, fish, starfish and other sea creatures. In addition to baby onesies, she makes toddler shirts, tanks, dresses, baby beanies, toddler hats, hair clips and girls’ hats. Keiki clothes run sizes newborn to age four (4T). Keep your eyes peeled for Kelly’s line, Sunkissed Cottage, at local craft fairs and baby boutiques or shop online.
