Whimsy Tails® Mermaid and Shark Blankets

About and Contact Info

Whimsy Tails is a small family shop operated by me, Tammy Gause. But I must confess, I do get a lot of help from my family, husband, and friends!

I taught myself to sew 9 years ago. My three daughters have patiently tried on numberless outfits, and I love them for that. No matter how stressful life has become, sewing always brings me joy. 

A few years ago I had some complications from Lupus. Within a few weeks I went from taking care of my three young daughters to lying in the Intensive Care Unit, on life support, with a breathing tube. When I awoke, my husband had set up a laptop with pictures of my girls on a slideshow. As I looked at these pics of my girls (wearing outfits I had sewn), I knew I had to get better so that I could take care of my kids. 

Even at my lowest moments, sewing lifted my spirits. My husband would bring fabric, needles, and thread to my hospital room so I could sew bow ties for my nephews. 

I've since recovered and now I love picking out fabric for the swimsuits and blankets and seeing the pictures that people send me of their kids with Whimsy blankets or swimsuits. Great care goes into each product we make, from the design, to the fabric, to the sewing. We try to make sure kids and moms love everything they order as as much as we do. I get a lot of satisfaction making cute things for little girls and boys.

Each product is handmade in the USA and we take pride in the quality stitching and fabric. WhimsyTails has been featured in Real Simple Magazine, Babiekins Magazine, Fox News, CBS46 Atlanta Plugged In, Hallmark Channel, and other publications.

Whimsy Tails was created by a mom of three, Alexia Sotelo. Tammy took over operations of WhimsyTails from Alexia in 2017 so Alexia could spend more time with her family.
