Sweet Little Melody
Thank you for visiting my store. My name is Ayla and I live in Melbourne, Australia and am an extremely blessed mama to two gorgeous boys and a very sweet beautiful rainbow baby girl "Ayda Melody" born January 2015 and 4 angel babies. Having lost a baby girl to stillbirth in 2013, I was extremely stressed and fearful when I became pregnant again in 2014 with Ayda. From the age of 7, my mum had taught me how to crochet, knit and sew and so I began crocheting again to keep calm, distracted and to give me hope that I will have a beautiful baby girl to look forward to. It was so rewarding and joyful each time I created a new piece and my friends kept encouraging me to open up an Etsy store to sell my crochet work. Once my adorable Ayda was born, I had booked in to have newborn images taken of her by a professional newborn photographer and I thought it would be so nice to personalise the photo shoot by using my own crochet items and photography props I had created. After seeing the images, I realised how beautiful they looked and how wonderful it would be to create these cute outfits and photo props for babies worldwide. So I was inspired by my daughter and came up with the business name "Sweet Little Melody" and started my little business!
From there I have now ventured into creating beautiful custom Flower Crowns and Headbands for babies through to adults. There are many gorgeous Brides and Flowergirls around the world who I have had the honour and pleasure creating custom headpieces for. I have additionally had the opportunity to create beautiful Floral Cake Toppers and Bridal bouquets and boutonnieres. I adore weddings and it is always so amazing for me to have the chance to make beautiful creations for bridal parties that will last a lifetime.
I am so thrilled and excited to be able to share my work with the world! I put so much love and care into my work and I know this love will be felt by all. From the baby who wears my adorable bonnets right up to a beautiful bride adorned with a gorgeous floral crown. Each baby is a precious miracle and should be celebrated with absolute joy. Each person is unique and amazing and I hope that is how you will feel when you own my beautiful creations.
I look forward to meeting you and creating a gorgeous piece created especially for you.
