About

Work-at-home mother of SIX!

I developed a love for sewing in childhood. I used to design and sew dresses for my dolls (by hand), using whatever scraps of fabric I could get. In the few years after my husband and I married in 1997 and I finished college, I had a lot of success sewing and selling cat toys online. I began designing tutus (sewn, not tied) and selling them here on Etsy in 2008 when my 2nd child (and 2nd daughter) was about four years old. My shop did very well, but I had to close it when I was pregnant with my 3rd child and learned she would have Down syndrome and complex heart defects. We had almost 4.5 months with her before her passing. What amazing months those were! My husband and I have had three more children since then. Yes...that's right; SIX children in all. :-) Our home and our hearts are full. Creating unique, well-made items is my passion, and I believe it shows through my reviews and the quality of my work.

Frequently asked questions

How do you make your tutus?

PickleBug tutus are HANDMADE/SEWN by me. They are not mass-produced tutus, and they are not tied. They are made with 100% nylon tulle (made in the USA). Each piece of tulle is hand-cut. I use a one-of-a-kind sewing technique that allows me to get tons of tulle on the waist band. There are no knots to take up space and come untied or twist. There are no cheap crochet bands....ever. No loosely sewn tulle either. Just beautiful, high-quality tutus that last!

Are your bodysuits true to size, large, or small?

I use Carter's brand bodysuits and they tend to be a bit large. My youngest daughter could still wear the 18 month size when she was 2.5 years old and 28 lbs. The 6-12 month size works well for most little ones celebrating a first birthday, unless they are really petite or larger than average. If you don't see a size offered, just ask. Chances are, I will be able to accommodate.

What kind of tulle do you use?

PickleBug tutus are made from 100% nylon tulle, made in the USA. No cheap, tissue-like polyester...ever.

How do I clean my tutu?

Tutus may be hand-washed by running water over the tulle and combing through it gently with your fingers. Many buyers find a shower works well for this. Cake and icing comes out best after it has dried. After thoroughly rinsing tutu, hang it to dry. Fluff dry tulle with fingers. NEVER iron or machine dry tutus.

How long are your tutus?

Newborn, 3 mos, 6 mos = 6 inches long
9 mos, 12 to 18 mos = 8 inches long
24 mos/2T = 9 inches long
3T, 4T = 10 inches long
