Hi there! I am a stay at home mom located in west St. Louis county and I would love to create something special for you. I started making bows and tutus for my two girls and then decided to set up a little shop for people like me who love cute girly accessories but are not so thrilled with the price tag that usually comes with them. All my items are made with love and mommy-tested; I'm only satisfied with a finished product I would be proud to put on my own child.

Take a look around, if you have an idea but don't see exactly what you want I am happy to do custom orders. Local pickup or meeting at a convenient location for drop-off, as well as shipping are all available. I accept cash, check, or paypal. If you have any questions please contact me at tootsiebearbows@gmail.com.

New Stuff

First of all, thanks to everyone who has been keeping me busy with orders in the last few weeks. The Cardinals onesies are really gaining popularity and I would love to start a photo gallery of all your cute babies showing off their ruffles!

Speaking of ruffles, did you know that in addition to tulle ruffles, I can also add fabric ruffles to any onesie? A few I've made so far have been pre-printed on the front and I simply added coordinating fabric to the backside, like this:
So cute, right? Even cuter with a matching bib and burp cloth!
The edges on these samples have been purposely left unfinished for a little intentional fraying to occur. Moving on...
There is now an option for a "fairy-style" tutu with the ends cut to a point...
...some new bow photos up...
...and a fun & festive first birthday onesie.
So there you have it. If you haven't checked my Photo Galleries in a while, take a look - these plus other new items have been added and you just might get inspired!

I make boy stuff too...

...like this little number:
which is available for $6. Complete the set with a matching burp cloth ($5) and minky baby blanket ($15) and you will have the cutest little man in town.

I made a Minnie Mouse applique shirt for my daughter and liked it so much, I decided to add it to my growing list of items for sale. The photo shows the minnie shape in black & white polka dot with a red bow and matching red zigzag stitch around the edge. You can choose any color you like for the bow and thread. Another option is a black felt minnie with a solid or patterned bow (red & white polka dot, zebra, etc.) Of course, I can also make matching hairbows and tutus to complete the set, or a Minnie onesie with matching tulle ruffles on the butt. Hopefully I will have a sample photo soon, it's on my to-do list for my baby girl. Minnie shirts and onesies are $10.
My favorite little model showing off hers! (Note - the rhinestones came with this particular shirt but I can add them if you like the look.)
