A small business to make a difference

Hello there and welcome to babé crochet, my name is Isabelle Mounet.

babé crochet is based in my new home in Littlehampton peaceful seafront, on the English South coast.

It was once called Babay Fay and after some life changing events which called for new intentions and aspirations, it was rebranded and relaunched in June 2019.

I grew up in a small farming village of Dordogne in the French South West, moving to the South of England in my early 20s to self improve and develop.

I quickly realised that Great Britain was where I wanted to live and grow.

My mother passed onto me her love for all things yarn and my father his “There is no problems but only solutions” type of attitude.

I would like to think that both their teachings and values led me to invent the Izzy Crochet Hat Templates.

Mid 2017 right up to mid 2019, personal matter had to take priority over anything else so my trusted US retailer, Amanda Lilly, from The Lillie Pad, did a vast amount of the work while providing me with invaluable support and ideas so that Babay Fay could be rebranded and relaunched… brand spanking new to match my new life!

What does babé means and where does it come from?

babé is what my close family use for me as my nickname, where it comes from is close to my heart.

My little sister, 4 years my junior, had a slow start in life, with slow cognitive and speech development.

Right up to the age of 4, she just could not say my name properly and babé is what she would say instead of Isabelle… and it stuck!

For me, it’s the symbol of the little girl who had it tough deal right from the start of her life and yet would land a Master in Horticulture, is happily married with 2 amazing children.

I am so terribly proud of her!

Where do the Izzy Crochet Hat Templates come from?

As most crocheters will have experienced, hats were very much a frustrating “hit and miss” when it came to executing and sizing accurately them and out of cheer frustration I invented them for myself to then realise that I was not alone having this problem which is when I decided launch them.

With my client’s feedback, I always aim to improve them so that they can meet crocheter’s expectations.
