Handmande Tutus by Cindy from West Roxbury

In the past Cindy owned a florist shop, now this mother of two designs bouquets of colorful tulle for little girls. These tutus are adorable and sweet for dress-up and play. We love these headbands and tutus when they are given at 1st birthday gifts, because they are perfect for photos and they look adorable on new walkers and professional crawlers.

Headbands by Casey

Roslindale resident and new mom Casey, loves all things  fashion and vintage. While being home with her baby girl she has found an artistic outlet in the design of dainty headbands.

Knitty Gritty of Roslndale

These locally handkitted newborn caps are sweet and green. The soft yarns are soy or organic cotton. Cute, soft, cozy, and local. How can you go wrong with picking up these hats as one of your newborn essentials.

Raina Sunshine from Roslindale

Alison is mother to one big girl and has one baby girl on the way. She started making these colorfully curly bows for her daughter, friends, friends of friends and now for you at Colorwheel. Raina Sunshine bows look adorable with ponytails, pigtails and locks of curls.


Mom Made Kaya’s Kloset babyshoes

Kaya’s Kloset came over from Brookline and joined the Collection just weeks after we opened. Kaya’s Kloset supplies us with a wide selection handmade soft sole babyshoes. You can find these adorable handmades covered in dinos, monkeys, sparkles and so much more. A pair from Kaya’s Kloset make a perfect add-on for a matching outfit or they stand alone as a little gift for a new little person.
