Tutu Little was founded in 2014, after the birth of my first child. My daughter was born on World Down Syndrome Day with Down Syndrome as well as a heart defect. She was born prematurely and we spent two weeks in the NICU in Grand Island, Nebraska before we were able to go home. I nicknamed my new love ''Little.''
''Little'' didn't stay little for long! As she outgrew clothes, I found myself buying the same outfits in different sizes from the local stores. Even on the buy, sell, and trade sites people were selling the same items. I was fed up. I wanted something different. Then my ''Little'' turned one.
I wanted my baby to have the best birthday ever. As a single mom, I did everything I could to make it special--within my budget. My grandma crocheted a top for her birthday dress, and I was able to attach a tutu skirt to the bottom. When my friends and family saw her birthday pictures, they began asking me if I could make tutus for their kids, grandkids, and nieces. Tutu Little was born!
Over the last few years, we have expanded from making tutus to printing onesies and t-shirts, making hair bows and headbands, sewing pants and Halloween costumes, to so much more! This year we will be launching our adult clothing line, and I am more than excited!
Thank you for being a part of our ''Little'' family!
P.S. We are now a ''Little'' family of three! We added a boy in December of 2015!
We are based in Grand Island, Nebraska. Find us at the GROW Nebraska store in the Conestoga Mall or shop online at http://www.facebook.com/mytutulittle !
