I’ve always been obsessed with accessories – from shoes (my first love) to scarves, to jewelry. I am certainly as girly as they come, so needless to say when my husband and I found out we were having a baby girl, I couldn’t wait to start buying tiny accessories for my new bundle of joy. Before our daughter, Scarlett was even born, she had a closet full of shoes, hair bows, and bloomers.

And what better way than to make accessories for my baby girl!

So one rainy day, Scarlett and I hit the fabric store… The rosette headband was the first design I tried and it turned out super cute. From there, I experimented with a few different designs, and before my eyes, Scarlett & Company was coming to life. I feature a lot of baby hair accessories, but I also offer a few cute things for the mommy that loves to accessorize. All of my items are handmade by me in my smoke-free home.

While I currently offer a variety of designs, I’m always willing to push my creative limits and try some custom work as well!
