Happy Saturday (again – it seems like I’m always posting on Saturdays!). I’ve been looking forward to sharing today’s shop with you. Not only does Goodnight Mouse have the most adorable name for a shop, Jessica also knits the most beautiful newborn and baby hats.
Here is one of Jessica’s gorgeous newborn wraps, photographed by the talented Sarah Booth Photgraphy (she has kindly provided a couple of the images for this post). I love how it wraps around baby’s shoulders and creates a beautiful line to the image.
I really wish I could knit. I keep telling myself I’m going to learn, but I never get around to it. I even tried teaching myself via youtube videos, but I just don’t have the knack for it. So instead, I turn other accomplished crafters when I want to add to my newborn and baby prop stash. And Jessica with Goodnight Mouse is incredibly skilled at knitting. Her work is absolutely masterful – the stitches are perfect, and her designs are too cute for words. I absolutely adore this pixie hat!
I originally came across Jessica’s shop when I was searching Etsy for an aviator hat for a 6-month-old’s portrait session. I love the little earflap aviator hats, but the detachable felt goggles on this hat are the icing on the cake. This little man’s mom just about died from the cuteness when I put this hat on her baby’s head. And she says it’s the first hat he’s willingly kept on his head since he learned how to take hats off by himself!
Have I mentioned that I love pixie hats? One of my favorite things about Goodnight Mouse is the beautiful yarn colors she offers. Everything is soft, delicate, and perfect for newborns. And she offers a huge variety of colors for both boys and girls. The designs are simple, the fit is perfect, and the hats enhance the image rather than detracting from the beautiful baby being photographed. That’s my idea of the perfect prop.
These sweet li’l pixies work equally well for outdoor sessions! This particular model decided naptime was over by the time we took her outdoors, but the hat kept her nice and warm, and she was content to lie in my cradle for a few minutes.
Here’s a closeup of one of Jessica’s dreamy hats. Check out the yummy texture of the yarn and the beautiful stitching. These hats will make a fantastic, timeless addition to your newborn hat collection.
