As Darling Does- An Adorable Handmade Shop:

After I found out I was pregnant I was super excited to find cute handmade accessories and products for my baby. When I found out I was having a boy this got a little harder because most of what I had seen was geared more towards girls. Then, I was introduced to a company called As Darling Does. They also have super cute girl accessories, but they totally delivered with really cute bow ties, blankets and bibs for boys! 

Everything in her shop is handmade and I love their choices in patterns, design and quality! Handmade products are really charming, but having them fit my taste and also well-made enough to endure the wear and tear of a baby is important and these products fit all the criteria. 

So far, I have ordered blankets, bibs, bow ties and a headband for myself from this shop and I love it all!


These blankets hit all my marks; size, warmth and comfort. They are big enough to cover baby but are not overly bulky to roll up and toss in the diaper bag without taking up all the room. They are super soft and make cuddle time so much better. The grey stripe one is the perfect lightweight and breathable material for summer but it also keeps Adler warm. The fox blanket is backed with minky which makes it a little thicker and warm for the colder months and air conditioned areas in the summer. Some of their newer blankets now have the option of being backed with the minky. A good blanket is very important to me and these blankets deliver. Mine have gotten a lot of love and snuggles.


Adler is a drooler and a spitter, so these bibs are a lifesaver. The cute patterns are certainly better than a formula stained rectangular burp cloth over my shoulder. They fit him really well and keep unwanted drool and spit up off his outfits. 

Bow Ties:

Adler already has a nice collection of bow ties. With so many cute choices I am surprised I haven’t bought them all! These are easy to clip on to his clothing and they make him the envy of all the baby boys at church and the fancy of all the baby girls.


Even though I don’t have a little girl to shower with these cute headbands I can dream about the day when my little girl will wear them. The good thing is that all of their headbands and bows come in adult sizes. As a mom, you are lucky if you get chance to shower– so these fashion forward headbands help you look cute even when you didn’t get a shower in and are perfect when you need to throw something on to run to the store. 

 I am a big fan of this shop! They make the perfect gifts for baby showers and “just because it’s cute” presents.
