My Mission: Make Cute Babies EVEN CUTER!

One of my absolute favorite things about crocheting for my etsy shop is hearing back from happy customers after they've received their order, especially when they send me pictures of their adorable little ones wearing the hats I made for them. Honestly, I do a little happy dance every time I see an email in my inbox from a customer saying, "Look how sweet little ______ is in her hat!"

 When I first made my pixie hat, I didn't intend to make them for babies--I just made it in a grown-up size (which my husband hated--he said it looked like I had a Hershey Kiss on my head) and got an email from Jessica (here's her website and her etsy shop) asking if I could make it in a newborn size for her photo shoots . . . and I'm so glad she asked, because look at this darling picture she sent me:

How cute is she?!

And here's everyone's favorite, the bear hat . . . I received some absolutely gorgeous photos from Lisa (check out  her website--this girl knows what she's doing!): 
(I love that grouchy face--she is none too pleased to be wearing that hat.)

Another shot by Lisa:

This next photo from Laura of Laura Kruger Photography took my breath away . . . how badly do you want to cuddle this little bear?
This little lady is so precious in her button beanie:

I love this chubby little guy who modeled my newborn nest for me--that is one chunky (and adorable) newborn! (thanks to Erica for this picture!):

(Are you noticing that all of these babies are asleep for their pictures? This feels like a slap in the face to me, since I swear my baby never slept until he was like 4 months old. Seriously.)

 And lest you think my hats are only cute on newborns--do you want to squeeze little C's chubby cheeks or what?! She looks so sweet in her hat!

Thank you all for sharing your beautiful photos! I love seeing your cute kiddos in their hats!


  1. Oh My Goodness those are the cutest pictures ever!!

  3. Your work is so wonderful, Rachel...I'm not going to say I wish I had a baby to put a hat on, because I totally don't...girl, I'm done...BUT, everyone else's babies look simply beautiful... thank you so much for sharing those adorable baby shots with us...OH! And love love love your newborn nest...;)

  5. Oh my word, so precious! It's got to be a hard job to make cute babies even cuter, but you certainly did it!

  6. How awesome is that?? To see your creations displayed in such wonderful photos...that's just cool!

  10. ADORABLE! I love these hats of yours. And these babies--talk about being overwhelmed by CUTENESS! Love it. :)

  11. Oh my goodness. This almost makes me want a baby. But mostly just for the hat and snuggles. I'm still not ready for night time feedings and diapers.

  12. I have my own (adult sized) bear hat. I LOVE it!

  13. oh my holy cute those baby bear hats are out of this world adorable. I cannot get over how stinking awesome they are!

    Wearing It On My Sleeves

  14. Those hats are amazing. My mom laughs at me because I always crochet so loosely that it looks like I have holes when I really don't. But not all of us can had your MAD skills, now can we? Awesome.
