Hi, I'm Amanda - owner, maker, and everything in between of littleROO™ Collective - and this is my family. I started littleROO™ in July of 2019 with a goal to not only connect with a community during a time I felt alone, but to also create modern and functional baby products that will last your little one a lifetime.
The “ROO” in littleROO™ is where it all started. My third pregnancy was the first time we chose to keep the baby’s sex a surprise. I was finding it difficult to build a bond with the little one I was growing - my husband suggested we name the baby and after trying out a few, “roo” just stuck. After nine long months, we welcomed our last little girl - our Posie Mae.
Creativity flows through my veins. Prior to starting our family I was a hairstylist, but my passion for that faded out during my first maternity leave. I went on to open an Etsy shop making felt floral crowns and bows, but I knew deep down it wouldn’t last long. After sitting down at a sewing machine one night to fix my daughters favourite blanket, I quickly fell in love with the process and asked my mom to teach me the basics.
Every blanket in the shop is 100% made by me. I cut, pin, sew, and carefully inspect every seam before sending it out to its forever home. The home that will give it a beautiful story filled with memories that will last a lifetime.
I choose to add in the word “collective” about 8 months into this journey. I live in a small city - Sarnia, Ontario - and quickly noticed the lack of options for baby/toddler/children’s gifts. This inspired me to branch out and bring in other pieces to my collection.
I am incredibly grateful that you are here and I hope you join the littleROO™ family!
