Dottie Ann Designs

If you are looking for cute and functional bags and backpacks for you and your minis, then look no further! Dottie Ann Designs makes some of the cutest purses and backpacks around. Angela, the owner and creator behind all of these cute bags, based her shop off of her two grandmothers. Not only is her shop named after them but her work ethic and attention to detail are also something her grandmothers past on to her.

The purses and backpacks are adorable! We had the pleasure of photographing a cute little floral purse from her new spring line. This mini bucket bag is perfect for your little girl's treasures. With its functional drawstring closure and leather shoulder strap it is sure to hold all the important items your child loves. With many different colors, prints and fabric options you will most definitely find the perfect accessory for your everyday use.

Mila's Zoo

I have been a huge fan of Mila's Zoo for a long time. I remember eyeing her Christmas items a few years back when my son was just barely 2 years old. The first item I bought from her was a bunny for his Easter basket. Since then our collection has grown quite a bit and I love every single piece. Nia makes the cutest plush animal pals around! From zoo and woodland animals to holiday pieces such as bats, reindeer and gingerbread people. She even makes little accessories for them. Her pieces are always fun and quirky and they are perfect for all ages. With all the options and sizes available you are bound to find one to match your child's personality.

She has recently launched her newest woodland creatures and they are beyond adorable. We had the privilege to go on an adventure in the woods with a fox and racoon from her collection. They were perfect for snuggling and carrying around while we looked for leaves and other furry animals. They also fit perfectly in our kids sized Lookie Loo Loo backpack while we took photos and picked up some of natures souvenirs. All of her creations are super soft and ideal for cuddling at bedtime. If you haven't experienced Mila's Zoo yet, I suggest heading over for a visit soon!

Bertie Lou Baby

Bertie Lou Baby makes some of the cutest handmade purses. Each purse is hand stitched and designed by Aubrey, the woman behind Bertie Lou Baby. Every bag she makes is different, no two are the same. These heirloom bags come in all colors and styles, from clouds and castles to animals and campers. The fabrics and vintage look reminds me of being a kid. She also offers bags for all the holidays! Hearts for Valentines, Rudolph for Christmas and sugar skulls for Halloween.

I had the chance to photograph a new style making its way to her website. Aubrey has already mastered the vintage look with her design pattern and her fabric choices but then she went and made an airstream camper purse, and all of my vintage dreams came true. We paired her gorgeous bag with a classic navy dress and a simple pair of pink t-strap shoes and the outfit was complete with that perfect bag. With lots of choices available you're bound to find something for that little girl in your life!

Stellabee Designs

Stellabee designs is a great handmade shop for the little ladies in your life. Alexandra, the owner of Stellabee, hand makes all the clothing right out of Ottawa Canada. She is known for her high-low dresses and bustle tops and also makes the cutest bonnets and bows. Her fabric choices are soft, comfortable, gorgeous and colorful.

Her shop started when she was, like most of us moms, tired of seeing the choices that were available at stores for kids clothing. The boring designs and characters were enough to make her stop buying and start sewing. She was looking for a way to keep busy while staying at home with her kids and the thought of designing and making clothing for her girls opened the creative outlet she had been looking for.

I had the pleasure of photographing this gorgeous floral bustle top from her current line. The cut of this top is perfect. Its beautiful and casual at the same time. It can be worn dressed for a special occasion or just a simple trip to Target. Pair it with your favorite leggings or bloomers and your little gal is set and rockin' the cutest outfit.
