I am dying over this hat! Absolutely adorable & fits my 4 month old (who is on the smaller side) perfectly!! Also incredibly impressed with shop owner having been so helpful when my order did not arrive. We may never know whether it was stolen or simply held up in customs (oy) but she was quick to offer a replacement at no charge, which I greatly appreciate.

About

It started with a bunny and a pea...

2010 was a special year for me as it heralded the long awaited arrival of my daughter to the joy of my little family, and also was the beginning of Babamoon.

I had been Knitting and Crocheting for a number of years at that stage, excited by the idea of hand creating the things my children would wear and play with as they grew up.

I have always been artistic, mostly my talents have been honed in the fine arts during childhood and my college days but I enjoyed crafting and textile arts also.
In those days I imagined that I would one day become a professional artist and tried for many years to establish my art by hand painting animal portraits and landscapes, whilst also working 9-5 day jobs for a living. But it wasn't something that worked out as planned. Being new to the world of self employment after being an employee was not something i was prepared for and didn't understand well enough to market and grow so my artistic endeavours had a very sluggish start.

After meeting my husband and moving in together, I took up an interest in amateur photography which propelled forward after having my son (taking a million pictures of him growing up as moms do!)
Once I had learned and mastered some new skills on my DSLR and Photoshop I began to integrate my fine art skills to my images, thus adding a whole new skill set to my art portfolio. Digital painting.

I stumbled across Etsy around this time which gave me the opportunity to learn what it meant to be my own boss and I finally learned slowly about where I had gone wrong before, and I was excited to finally find a venue where i could try and flourish a home based business in art and design.

I created my first Etsy shop known as moonangelnay.etsy.com for my Art and Fine Art photographic images. I quickly fell in love with Etsy, it's ethos and community of entreprenuers. I loved that it had given me the freedom to explore my artistic crafts, easily learn how to run a business and sell my creations, for which the enthusiasm spilled over into my daily life. It was during this period that I had started to pick up my knit and crochet needles a lot more as I relaxed into my new life.

I used to love buying knitting books and patterns as my son grew up, and had never really considered writing my own despite my ideas and abilities, but whilst waiting for my daughter's birth, I suddenly found myself relying on the books less, and on my own ideas more; making wonderful garments and accessories almost weekly for my little family.

It was actually my son's ideas that lead to the beginnings of Babamoon. His suggestions of making cute costumes and fluffy animal themed gifts for his baby sister using soft quality yarns from our local craft shop inspired me to make the first of my costume themed accessories and props found in my store. The Rainbow Bunny Hat and Peapod Cocoon!

At the time I hadn't started Babamoon but noticed that friends, family members, and even strangers really took a liking to these new accessories and I felt encouraged. I contemplated actually doing it for a living.

So I opened up my second shop Babamoon and included my bunny hat, crochet wings and peapod cocoon designs amongst a few others to sell on a made to order basis. To my delight I made my first sale within a month!
My photography store had to take a back seat in the end as Babamoon was growing much faster than I had expected.
Now 8 years down the line Babamoon is still thriving as a full time venture!

I couldn't be more pleased with the progress made in the business. I owe huge credit to my supportive family for putting up with my work loads, my overspilling yarn hoard, my husband for regularly assisting with shipping and for my children forever inspiring me. My son especially with his crazy but cool suggestions and also for my daughters modelling in the majority of listings throughout my store, fast becoming known for her 'blue stripe bunny hat' picture which still is my most popular design 8 years later!

Our newest member of the family has enjoyed wearing his siblings Babamoon creations over time. I love that he's been able to enjoy the pieces because of their longevity. I do feel it's important to use the highest quality components for my items with them being exclusively Handmade by me, it gives me much flexibility and input into what I pass on to my customers. Striving for quality is what I believe has lead to my businesses success. I couldn't be more proud of the achievements that have been brought forth with magazine and blog appearances, Etsy Press Kits and more over the years. I look forward to what the future will bring for my business and excited about all the new ideas I plan to include in store.

Frequently asked questions

Are your items ready to ship? Can I change/cancel my order?

Ready to Ship? - No. All of my items are made to order unless stated otherwise and subject to the processing time stated in the shipping and policies tab and your shopping cart prior to payment.

Changes - As my items are made to order they are customisable so changes to size/colours can be made within 2 days

Cancellations - Under the current processing schedule customers MUST give 2 days notice for cancellations before supplies are ordered/prepared in advance for item completion and shipment when due.
After the 2 day cancellation window, cancel requests will NOT be accepted and will be subject to my after shipment policy. Customers are responsible for acknowledging the listing titles/descriptions and my policies before ordering.

Please note that it is recommended to use rush processing if my order queue is too long and you need you items made sooner. This service does not speed up delivery.

Yes!

I do offer Tracked options via the shipping menu in the shopping cart before you purchase. These MUST be selected before you order otherwise you will have standard shipping for your order.

•Standard shipping is the default shipping option for ALL orders

Busy periods (August-April)

During peak periods and holiday seasons the processing schedule may be longer than estimated due to increased quantities of orders and message volume. I always work as swiftly as I can to try and get everyone's orders out asap.

Please be aware that if an order hasn't been marked as shipped and a shipment notification hasn't been received, your order is NOT ready to ship just yet. I cannot offer status updates due to an increased workload during these periods where completing orders takes a priority.

Messages are usually answered in a couple of hours, however during busy periods it may take up to 48 hours to reach and answer messages.
