Sweet Bella Baby, creates stands out, makes a statement and is bold. I love that! It's unique and different, & for every Mom who prizes her daughter and loves to have her stand apart form the crowd!
Another unique feature is the fact that some of her creations come adorned with Swarovski Cystal's, which further adds to the beauty and sophistication of Sweet Bella Baby's products.
The item themselves are quality hand-made. I was given the "Pink flower, swarovski cystal center, on a crochet hat", and my hat was black, and although on Sweet Bella Baby's listing, it claims to fit a 3 month to 12 month old child - my daughter is nearly 3, and it fits her fine. So there's expandability in these hats.
Another feature that I thought was neccessary was the fact the my daughter will constantly pull her hat off, then put it back on and so forth, until I'm driven nuts & usually snap at her to "leave it alone!", but the great part of these hats was - it survived her mauling! The flower retained it's "fluffiness", the crystal in the center didn't pop off, it looked as good as the day I received it!
To me, as a mother of a toddler, you need durability in anything to do with your toddler, from clothes, to accessories to everything else that will take a beating from your kids. These products passed my "Toddler" test with flying colors. As did the "Pink Flower with sequins heart in the middle on Crochet Headband", which I asked for in brown - and what an amazing headband!
Now, while I've always admired the types of headbands where a huge flower is prominent & it's crocheted and looks expensive - what always stopped me from buying them is my perception of "That will last 5 minutes on A's head".
Well - not Sweet Bella Baby's products! 'A' pulled on it, tugged it out of her hair, played with it, ruffled the flower - and it still stood it's ground and looks brand new!!
I asked Joanne some questions about her craft, life and view on things - and here's what she had to say ...
How did you discover your amazing talent for making girls accessories?
(I can relate to that! I was stopped numerous times for these gorgeous hats!)

One of my favorite things is how they come packaged. They are ready for any occasion of gift giving.
