sorry i haven't been on for a while....

hello lovelies, sadly on the 18th January my amazing Mum passed away, she was such a huge part of my and my families lifes and has left a big hole, she is very much missed!

I have thrown all my spare time and energy into making wee tooties even more successful in memory of my Mum.  So i now have my very own website, yippee :)

I have also been working with some new amazing photographers to capture my wee tootie designs in their true beauty, including

wee tootie elastic headbands

Good morning, today i will be working on stall stock for my Thainstone Centre/Mart Indoor Sunday Market stall in Inverurie, Aberdeenshire from 9am.  I have a very special guest joining me on my stall tomorrow - my lovely Mother in Law Gwen Black, who has an Honours degree in Fine Art from Grays School of Art in Aberdeen, specialising in Printmaking. She will be there with her amazing handmade books, cards and lots more wonderful creations.

I haven't made any new wee tootie elastic headbands since before Christmas so was very inspired to make some new ones.

Last night i made this new beautiful vintage style baby headband - dusky pink and ivory rosettes hand sewn onto milk chocolate elastic with fluffy feather and pearl like beads, i plan to make more of these ones with rosettes, netting, pearl beads and feather perfect for special occasions and photo props -

My first makes of today are these wee tootie elastic headbands -  

We hope to see you at my stall x x

Posting day

hello lovely followers, well today is posting day, i have my Cath Kidston reusable bag stuffed full of pink wee tootie parcels ready to be sent to their new fairy homes :)

I sold out at my shopping evening which is amazing however i am left with no stock for my stall eek.

Today and tomorrow will be a mad creative session to get my stall fully stocked for Sunday and of course my Facebook Shopping Evening on Monday....this may be a little different this week as i was blocked from commenting on my own page after last weeks sales which made life very difficult.  I am considering doing a trial run on ebay for this week, what do you think...?

Have a lovely day! x x

An order ready to pack -

Hello and welcome to wee tootie, I am Emma Black from Aberdeenshire and am the Sole Trader/Designer/Creator as well as a Mummy of 2 wee tooties, i enjoy crafting pretties and after lots of compliments and requests i set up 'wee tootie booties & headbands' on Facebook in 2009 which now has a following of over 4000, wee tootie creations include - exclusively handmade bows, headbands, flowers, Alice bands and many more for every wee fairy, as well as a custom made to match service to compliment any outfit.

Due to a high demand for wee tooties I will no longer be making to order & will instead be listing stock items which will be sold on a first come first served basis. I always strive to create the best & most individual hair pretties. By stopping made to order items I will have far more time to offer a wide range of products, however we will still offer custom made to match accessories very soon.


Every Monday at 8pm i will be listing wee tooties for sale, these have already been lovingly created and are available on a first comment first served basis, there is only ONE of each item available and in size stated and will be offered to the first person to write ‘SOLD’ under the photo. I will then send a personal message (pm) to your inbox confirming purchase and payment details.


I also have a weekly wee tootie stall at Thainstone Centre/Mart Indoor Sunday Market, Inverurie, Aberdeenshire, from 9am, purchases from the shopping evenings can be paid for and collected from here.


I will take a limited number of these a month.....more details to follow
