Hi there, I'm Joellie. Mum of two young boys and a complete fabric addict.
I've called this page 'Our Story' but really I mean 'My story'. Little Fox Tots is a small handmade clothing company for children and babies aged between 0 months and 14 years old with options for Adults too! All of my items are handmade with help from fabric cutters and occasionally an extra seamstress. The majority of items are handmade by me in my little home in Basingstoke. Little Fox Tots clothing strives to uphold excellent standards and all items are made using an overlocker, sewing machine and coverstitch machine for a professional finish.
I began sewing at a young age in school and finally learned how to use a machine doing my GCSE textiles qualification. I did a few mini projects here and there but it was only after my eldest son Arlo was born that I really found my feet. I was bored of trying to find clothes for him that fit his petite frame that wasn't just the usual grey or blue. So I decided to make his wardrobe instead!
Originally Arlo's Own, Little Fox Tots was established in September 2018 using store bought fabrics and clothing patterns by various designers. This little business began it's journey on Facebook and Instagram, eventually spreading onto Etsy and now being provided here via it's own website.
The patterns used to make clothing come from Made by Jack's Mum, Brindille and Twig, Ellie and Mac and Lowlands Kids to create fun, unique items of clothing that can be personalised through fabric and embellishment choices.
From January 2019 to January 2020, Arlo's Own was closed for business. In January 2020, the brand, renamed Little Fox Tots reopened and has since been providing comfortable clothing for babies and children. Monthly openings offering exclusive fabrics are held on the website and via social media. Please subscribe to the mailing list to be notified of the dates in which pre-orders are held.
