Loopy Beginning for Little Loopy Lou

I put a lot of thought into the Little Loopy Lou brand and what products I wanted to represent it. Inspired by cute shoes and my grandmother always telling me "Good shoes take you good places", I decided to design cute baby shoes that would stay on. I made several prototypes and had friends with babies try them out for me. They reported back about how they fit and stayed on. After tweaking the design to get it just right, I came to Etsy to share with the world.

It is my hope that anyone who visits Little Loopy Lou sees the love and attention to detail given to every design. From crochet baby booties to knit bonnets, every product is handmade by me.

When I was 9 years old, my great aunt came to visit from Canada. She brought my brother, sisters and I hand knit sweaters. I was so in awe of what she was able to make out of yarn and needles that I begged her to teach me. She told me I was too young which made me want to learn even more. This was a time before the internet and YouTube so if you wanted to learn something new, you had to find a book or a person to show you.

After she left, I pestered my Mom until she taught me. Mom didn't know how to knit but she taught me to crochet. I'll never forget the first thing I made - bun covers for ballet class. From that point on, I can't remember a time when I didn't have yarn and crochet hook or knitting needle in my hands.

Creating brings joy to the soul. As far back as I can remember, I've shown love to those around me by making them things. Over the years, my family has received more handmade gifts (by me or another artist) than I can count. These gifts mean so much more to them because they came from the creative space of another.

I've always enjoyed making things. When I was little and my dad would ground me, he didn't take away TV or electronics. He grounded me from crafting. I thought that was the worst punishment ever!

The name Loopy Lou came to me when I was pondering what I could call my handmade shop. I am always going and doing things and sometimes I feel like I'm on a loop de loop roller coaster. Then I started to think about how yarn is knit or crocheted into beautiful designs. It is loop after loop. So, I knew I had to have Loopy in the name. I wanted something to go with it and as a 1st grade teacher, I love alliteration. Little Loopy Lou came to mind and I knew it was a just right fit.
