There we were, browsing the online craft site Etsy for a set of matching handmade hats for our web department, we came across this little local guy, Mason. Now, Mason is clearly the cutest baby model we’ve ever seen, but we knew there had to be more. So we set out to find the cutest kids on Etsy, all modeling products made by Chicago crafters.
Gracie is ready for a day in the leaves with her Fall Tuxedo Shirt Dress made by her mother, Heather. Completing the outfit is a pair of Double Ruffle Denim Pants, also available in Heather's Etsy shop. Heather says Gracie has gotten used to being on call to model a new product whenever it's finished, but still takes the occasional chocolate or candy payment.
Heather works out of her home in the western suburbs. She's been sewing all her life, but got more serious about it after Gracie was born. "I would go shopping, see the cutest things, and I soon realized 'I can do that.'" she says.
The Fall Tuxedo Shirt Dress sells for $52 and the Double Ruffle Denim Pants sells for $37.
