This is the most beautiful item that I have ever purchased off of Etsy. The quality is superb. The size is perfect and the hat is very soft and luxurious. I cannot wait to use this for Newborn Photos. Great buy, worth the money, shipped within three days and received it within a few days. Couldn't be more satisfied. Seller was quick to answer all of my questions and worked with me on sizing for a bigger newborn. Love it!

My baby hats and mittens are made with lots of LOVE!

How I came to name my shop....
I was encouraged by my very talented cousin, Cheryl Fudge, owner of Cheryl Fudge Fashion Camp, to consider using my name as the name of my shop....so after much thought, I agreed.....my maiden name was Fudge and I thought why not create a shop name that is as unique and hopefully unforgettable as my original designs! So WELCOME to KAREN FUDGE....BABY LOVE!

My grandmother taught me how to knit and crochet when I was about 12 years old. We started out making things for my barbie dolls. My grandmother, (her name was Flossie from Newfoundland) was an amazing woman...she would sit for hours knitting something, anything! .... She would knit everyone in our family beautiful sweaters and Christmas Stockings and now that I am knitting myself I now know the work and time that went into everything she made! I have a much better appreciation for what she gave to us now...pure LOVE went into everything she made! She was a treasure and I miss her terribly and as time goes by, I realize I am more and more like her! I hope I have made her proud...

I am the mother of 3 grown children and my inspiration for this shop came when my first grandchild was born...Cameron Jane! The twins, Emily and Kate, Cooper and the latest twins, JJ and Mallory have now joined our family...yes another set of twins! They are all healthy and gorgeous in every way! Many of the photo's used in the shop are of them...yes, I am showing them off! They are the loves of my life!

My husband and I retired in September of 2014. We sold our home, cars, furniture and put nothing in storage and we now live full time on our 44' sailboat traveling up and down the east coast and to the Bahama's ... however we make our way back "home" to Mattapoisett, Massachusetts for the spring and summer months so we can visit with our family!

So come on into the shop! It is my goal to have each item made and shipped to you within 24-48 hours of receiving an order and if you have a special request, please let me know and I will do my best to help you create that perfect gift! A lot of love goes into everything I make!

My best to you and your families ... always!
Karen
