Emma Belle Doll Featured at Blog Doll Guide

Fancybelle Boutique has a new collection of Belle Baby Doll cloth dolls for babies and girls

I'm just so excited to have my Emma Belle doll featured on Gold Crest Bags recent blog post: A Doll Guide--For Every Pocket!

I want to thank Miriam of Gold Coast Bags for including one of my new dolls on their lovely post!

Each old-fashioned cloth doll is made from retro paperdoll fabric by Sherri Marquez and meant to be played with and given a lot of love by a very special little girl! Just the right size to be carried anywhere, tucked into pockets or tossed into any sized diaper bag.

On the Way This Week

I just finished an adorable new carseat carrier handle cushion perfect for little boys in "Groovy Guitar" designer fabric by Michael Miller and will have it for sale at fancybelleboutique.etsy.com later this week.

I just love this fabric!

If you have an infant car seat or travel system, then you know how much that handle can dig into your arm when you're carrying baby around. My carrier handle cushions are designed to fit any infant car seat and have just enough "squish" to protect your arm without interfering with any of the carrier handle positions. The cushion is attached quickly and easily by beautiful coordinating ribbons. I've been using mine for over 3 months now and it's never come loose from the carrier handle.

Here are some photos of my own pink Kleo cushion that we use on a daily basis. Now that Lucy Belle is getting older and paying more attention to her surroundings, she loves to look at the colorful patterns on her car seat cushion!

Also on the way this week, a cuddly tag blanket for the little car lover in your family. One side is soft light green minky fabric and the other is "Traffic Jam" designer fabric by Alexander Henry. Hopefully I'll sell it before my vehicle-obsessed toddler steals it away!

Finally...available for purchase by 10/1/09: a set of soft baby blocks made in designer fabrics from Alexander Henry and Michael Miller. Colors include turquoise, dark red, yellow and rich chocolate. This set is perfect for either a toddler boy or a girl...or even a delivery surprise baby on the way!

New Hair Tie Collection and Stuffed Unicorn Toy

Over the weekend I just listed several new button ponytail holders made from designer fabric and a sweet little stuffed unicorn toy with a grosgrain ribbon mane. Here are a few photos!

These button hair ties are an affordable and easy way to add a lot of style to a simple ponytail or braid.

Prices range from $2.75-$4.00. An affordable way to indulge your sense of style.

My new stuffed unicorn toy would be an adorable accent piece for a nursery decorated in an oh-so-trendy pink and brown color scheme! And it's even machine washable, if your child ends up using it as a teething toy.

A cuddly little horsey like this is perfect for a cowgirl-themed nursery or even a shabby chic floral adult's room. On sale now at fancybelleboutique.etsy.com for $15.95. Larger and smaller versions will be available by 10/1/09.

New Items Available Now!

Today I'm posting on Etsy a few of my sweet little creations from my baby hat collection! Take a look, and I hope you enjoy them. All of them can be customized with different colors or special yarn, just let me know. I love making new things. My handcrafted items make really special, one-of-a-kind baby shower gifts...no one is going to show up to the party with the same gift as you!

Coming soon...I hope to post some arm cushions for infant car seat carrier handles. I couldn't live without mine. Well, that might be a bit of an overstatement, but this is one of those items that you don't realize you need until get it and use it yourself.

I've been using mine for 3 months and no more hard plastic digging into my arm when I carry my baby around in her car seat. And Lucy Belle has something fun and colorful to look at as well! Ours in Alexander Henry pink kleo fabric and I'll be listing several in a variety of designer fabrics for both girls and boys.

Also coming soon...an adorable stuffed unicorn horsey with a ribbon mane, available in designer fabrics. Perfect for little and big kids alike!

Welcome to Fancybelle.com!

This site will display handcrafted items for babies, children and their mommies that will be available soon at fancybelleboutique.etsy.com.

I make car seat carrier handle cushions, strap wraps, knit hats and toys for girls and boys. I'm learning how to make fabric blocks, baby Bjorn covers and fabric hair accessories. My own two children have inspired these creations. In fact, this store is named after my precious and lively infant daughter, Lucy Belle! But I won't forget about the boys in your life. Being a mom to a 2 year old son that is "all boy", I know the importance of quality products that can withstand plenty of washings.

The majority of the profits of Fancybelle Boutique will help supplement my family's income as I transition to being a stay-at-home mom. Please come back and check my site often to see new products that will be added. Thank you so much for visiting!
