If you're a Mom, or know of friends or family who have little girls, you should know how much we Moms love to dress our daughters up in cute bows, headbands, hats, dresses - the works!

Well I found a company called Sweet Bella Baby that not only allows you a huge selection of "cute items" - but they do such adorable work - it's almost criminal! "They" in this case, is Joanne, a former SAHM, with grandchildren now. So not only has she been making these gorgeous bows and headbands for a long time - she has loads of experience at it - and it shows.

When I received my crochet hat and headband to review, I threw it on my daughter, and we had to go to the store - I cannot tell you the amount of people who stopped me to ask where I got her "gorgeous headband", to quote 2 Moms.

What Joanne of 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.

To start with - they arrive beautifully packaged. They are ready to be given as gifts, if you so choose to. I was immediately impressed, and my girls could not stay away with gasps of appreciation.
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 discovered my talent of making anything girly and glitzy about 20 years ago when I was a stay at home mom with my 2 girls. Surprise I am the grandmother of the 2 little girls in my Etsy Store and one more on the way any day. Oh how happy I was to have more girls to be able make girly things again. I decided to open my Etsy store one day when like you every time we went out with the girls we would get so many compliments on what they were wearing on their heads (hats or headbands) and I was asked where did you get them.

(I can relate to that! I was stopped numerous times for these gorgeous hats!)

What are you're personal favorites?
One of my favorite things is how they come packaged. They are ready for any occasion of gift giving.

What one thing can you never leave home without?
Now-a-days, what item I can’t leave home without is my cell phone. I need to be able to connect to the internet and look at my Etsy store to see what is going on at all time!

I am seriously impressed with what Joanne creates, she does a fabulous job - and her prices are something you have to see to believe! For the quality she produces, I would assume the price would be right up there, but not so. They're extremely affordable, & I honestly believe that once you try her products - you will go back whever you can. She's fantastic! And she has offered one lucky reader a choice of anything from her store! You can't beat that for generosity, nor can you beat her quality items!
