Bella Baby is Back!



Well, it's been a while since my last entry, but after taking nearly all day to finish this one, I now know why I haven't done one in a while!  I apologize in advance for mistakes in spelling, grammar, mismatched fonts and text size, etc.  And I realize some of these pictures are out of order, but I am about worn out with cutting, pasting, and re-arranging!  Have I mentioned before that I am not a writer!???  Well I am not a computer genius either.  This may be my last entry...PERIOD.  :) 

Let me start by saying a sincere THANK YOU to my loyal customers here in Burkesville!  I appreciate you allowing me to make bows, headbands, tutus, baby shower gifts, etc. for your sweet children.  It is my pleasure to make whatever you have in mind.  If I don't have the supplies or color of ribbon you are needing, I will try and get it. 

Having said that though, I would like to expand Bella Baby so that I can reach new customers.  I actually thought about selling my things on E-bay or Etsy, but after researching this, I found that there are already so many of these types of things out there.  Plus, I think it would be a lot more computer/paper work than I am ready to handle right now.  As most of you know, I have a 19 month old that keeps me very, very busy.  So I don't think she or I would be ready for such a task! 

Right now, my only source of advertisement is through Facebook.  I have things on my personal page that my friends can see, but I also have a group page titled Bella Baby that anyone can view.  I too, have a few things at a local business here in Burkesville called "It's All About Kids" (a children's and teen's, consignment store).  If you haven't checked it out yet, you should!  CUTE, CUTE, stuff! 

 So, what I'm asking of you, Facebook friends, is to share this link with YOUR Facebook friends, or send by email to anyone that you think might be interested.  I have had a few out of town orders lately, and have been successful in mailing exactly what they requested.  So why order from me rather than go to your local boutique??  PRICE, PRICE, PRICE!  Most of my things are at least half the cost of what you would find in any specialty shop.  I experienced this first hand when I began buying $8-$12 bows and crochet headbands for my own baby.  I soon figured there had to be a better way!  So not only do I now make Isabella's bows, headbands, beanies, bib clips, tutus, or other accessories, I make them for your Bella Baby as well!

  So now, for my products...which like I mentioned earlier, are in no particular order.  I have posted pics of only a few of the hundreds of items I have made.  Remember, I can make/order any color/style of what you are wanting.  All you have to do is ask.  If you would like to see other pictures (especially of the other tutus), please go back and read my previous entries.

A Little Something Different...

I have 8 Bella Baby tutus that I started out with, each with its own unique name in classic colors such as pink, white, lavender, and hot pink.  But I have had lots of requests for specific styles.  Here are a few examples...








                    Bows, Bows, and more Bows!

I have made lots of different colors and styles of bows, and can't possibly post pictures of them all, but here are a few.  I can make any size bow, using either 7/8 inch ribbon or 1 1/2 inch ribbon.  I make mostly single and double layer bows, but have made a few triple layer upon request for pageants and holidays.

And the baby that started it all....my inspiration for Bella Baby, Isabella Kurtys. 


Mommy loves you, Isabella.  Thank you for being the sweetest, funniest, smartest, most loving little girl I know. 
(I guess I am a little biased, though)  :)

  1. I am so proud of you, Leigh Ann. All of your items are beautiful. I love the idea that you can also place them in gift bags for busy buyers. LOL

    By the way, this is your mom not Liza. I'm not computer savvy either.
