(giveaway at bottom of post)
You may have seen a sneak peek on Instagram last week (@alizadventures), but if not, I have some exciting news! My mother and I are working together on an Etsy shop, The Tipsy Bunny, which will feature children's bonnets as well as some other accessories, like fabric bibs and some baby necklaces from my sister's line, Laura Cox Designs.
The shop has a few items listed already (with more pieces in the works) and is open now HERE.
So, where did that silly name come from? Well, my mom is definitely not your typical "Granny" or "Grandma," so she chose Bunny as the name my daughter Camille calls her (her mother's pet name from her father was also Bunny). Tipsy is the name of our family dog, a Jack Russell. And if you want to believe that The Tipsy Bunny has a double meaning, then that is fine, too. :)
Mom, Camille, and me.
And yes, she made Camille's Lilly Pulitzer tunic ...
... out of a women's size 8 skirt that we cut up!
We are working together to select the bonnet designs and fabrics, but the majority of the actual labor is being done specifically by my mother. She is a sewing rockstar. You may have seen some of the beautiful items she's made for Camille. I'm handling the rest of the selling process -- shop upkeep, photography, listings, shipping, and marketing.
Here is a preview of some of the items in the shop. We are so excited and I hope you will keep us in mind for your own little ones or any upcoming events like baby showers, christenings, holidays, or birthdays!
Cooler weather will bring thicker fabrics to keep little ears warm.
GIVEAWAY TIME! We'd also love to hear from you ... what color or design would you like to see in The Tipsy Bunny? Please let us know any fun ideas or color/trim combos you may have in the comments section below. We are all ears!
