I want to introduce you to a CafeMom friend of mine. Her name is Sadie, one of my most favorite names in the world ;), and she is the owner of Nellie Bug's Tutus and More. I met Sadie when I joined a crafting group on CafeMom. I had never made a tutu but kept seeing all of these beautiful creations all over the web. I had purchased a tutu for Bean for a Halloween costume last year and had to pay $45 for it. I loved the tutu but I thought that was a bit much for one and knew I couldn't continue to buy them at that price.

Sadie told me she had felt the same way in the past. "I have 3 girls and could not afford to buy them boutique items, such as tutus, for $30+ a piece. So I started making them myself. The girls loved them, so did everyone else! Everyone kept asking if I had a business card, so I made a website and it went from there."

She even offers ebooks for purchase that can help you learn to make tutus and boutique hairbows on your own. I have purchased a couple of her ebooks and learned so many tips and tricks from them.
Sadie makes some of the cutest tutus I've seen. Her site is filled with so many dress-up designs that it makes Bean's head spin. I keep hearing "buy me that, buy me that". She doesn't just make tutus and hairbows though. She sells aprons, capes, bottle cap flowers, and much more. Aprons are some of her favorite things to make and I know if I ever get to the point of trying to sew something, I'm going to turn to her for advice.
Every month she runs a sale on her site and offers giveaways on her Facebook page all the time. Sadie was nice enough to offer one of her bottle cap flower hairbows as a giveaway! These are very cute. Here's an example of one of her bottle cap creations made for Girl Scouts.
