Yee ha for lil’ Western teesAimee Brock

With the popularity of the 3D Toy Story movie at the moment, little boys and girls alike are revisiting their cowboy dress-ups and it’s one play idea that’s in step with fashion. Bandana bibs for babies have been around for a while but even better are these vintage-slash-Kiwiana t-shirts by Free Range Baby. Handmade in a cool studio in Wellington, the bandana is sewn onto the t-shirt, and Free Range’s Vic has designed the tee with invisible seams on the arms so you can roll them up, ‘giving this top oodles of country charm’. The screen print on the front was designed by her husband and features cute Kiwiana touches. In a range of sleeve-lengths, colours and fabrics like cotton, wool blends and merino, as per usual for Free Range Baby some of the tees feature genuine vintage cloths and are strictly limited edition. Available on Felt, they won’t just please Mum. There’s something for Woody and Jessie lovers alike!
