Elle's He{art} Designs Etsy shop: adorable newborn baby hats

I'm so happy to share this unique and local (to me) Etsy shop for adorable baby hats!  Elle's He(art) Designs is a Chicopee, Massachusetts based shop for newborn items that are "handcrafted from the heart."

Meet Michelle, the woman behind it all!  She is a mom of two: Luke (16) and Leia (7), and has two tea cup Chihuahuas. Michelle enjoys leisure hiking, working out, and going to the beach.  She is a huge coffee lover and an active member of her church, New Day.  




When Michelle suffered from a back injury, her "type A" personality kicked in and she had trouble sitting still.  She had been crafting since the age of seven, and decided to use this talent and recovery time to start a business!  She has now been in business just under five years.  

I love the simple design and the soft material that Michelle uses.  I knew right away that this was what I wanted to get for my newborn niece, Joy.  The hats are perfect for newborn pictures, yet are stretchy so the baby can get plenty of everyday use as well.  The material is also light enough for any season.  My order was timely and even artistically packaged!

My beautiful new niece, Joy.

Michelle has been recognized around her community for her sponsorship of local events and charities like The Ronald McDonald House and the NICU.  She especially likes to support events and charities involving children and animals.  Her work is currently featured in five retail locations in the New England area:

Carey's Flowers in South Hadley, MA
Mormor in Shelburne Falls, MA
Hannah Grimes Marketplace, Main Street, Keen, NH
Bashista Orchards in Southampton, MA
Ladybug Boutique in Middletown, CT


Michelle has a Facebook page here and you can find her Etsy shop here.  You can also contact her through email: EllesHeartDesign(at)yahoo(dot)com.

A big thank you to Michelle for allowing me to feature her story and business!  I hope you'll keep her in mind for your future baby gift needs!
