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.

Updates.

It's been a little while since my last post but I will try to keep this one short and sweet. I have been able to do some great custom orders lately and I appreciate all of you keeping me on my toes and challenging me creatively. That's what I love about what I do! I thought I would share a few of my recent favorites...
These were a lot of fun. A fellow mommy (who I later found out was an old friend from elementary school - small world!) ordered these for her two boys to wear when they met their new baby sister in the hospital. I love the combination of different fabrics and colors and the uniqueness of the finished product. Of course, lil sis needed one too...
These can be customized with whatever colors you like; I can use only one or two fabrics for the letters or make every one different. Onesies and boys T-shirts (short sleeve) are $10; girls T's are $12.
This is the cupcake applique shirt that my little cupcake wore for her first birthday, along with this:
I call it my confetti tutu - it's definitely my personal favorite of the tutu's I have made so far. It's kind of random and crazy with lots of color and little ribbons tied on all over. But that's what I love about it! In my opinion, you have to see it on to get the full effect, it's even cuter in person.
So much for this being a short post! One more and then I'll stop, I promise. One of my loyal customers is taking a Disney trip soon and wanted a special outfit for her daughter to wear. She came to me and I came up with this sassy little ensemble:
My favorite part has to be the little touch of zebra. The ruffle bloomers are available in sizes 0-24 months for $16, in any color combination you request. (I can also make plain diaper covers without the ruffles).

One last note - I am planning on participating in a holiday boutique in early November so I will be making up some items in advance to have available for sale. I'll post the details in the near future, but I would also be happy to set up shop in my living room at any time if you are a person that has a hard time visualizing things and prefers to have your choices right there in front of you. I've thought about doing home parties where I bring my goodies to you...that is on my list of "someday, when I have the time" plans for the moment!
