It goes without saying that we have some really creative and entrepreneurial neighbors in Shaw. One such neighbor is a talented graphic designer, Kari, who owns her own Shaw-based graphic design business, SugarB Studio. Kari’s graphic design portfolio is stellar and worth its own post, but what’s currently caught my eye is a business she started recently, SugarB Baby, which sells ahhh-dorable custom knit baby hats.
After learning to knit from her mother, every autumn Kari would make herself a new scarf. When a close friend had a baby boy, Kari decided to try knitting him a hat. Kari's hats soon became a tradition among her friends and were a sought-after gift. Realizing the demand for these adorable (and practical) baby hats, Kari created SugarB Baby.
SugarB Baby offers the baby hats in three classic styles: simple cap, simple bear and simple bunny (check them out at SugarB Baby's website), sizes them for newborns, 0-6 months and 6 to 12 months, and offers three color palettes: boy, girl and surprise. As each hat is made-to-order, SugarB can work with you on specific needs and desires regarding a hat. Each hat costs $29.50 (plus $4.95 shipping).
My brother and his wife are expecting their first child – a girl – this September. I ordered the newborn sized bunny hat and requested that it be made in the cutest girl colors possible. I cannot wait to see my new niece wearing her cap this fall!
