Even Adults Love my Hats

I think that there is the mis-perception that I make these hats for babies, after all, my Blog name is Babies Love Beanies.  The fact is, the sale of the hats benefits babies therefore they love them!  I would say about half of the hats I have sold have actually been for adults to wear, even my fun character ones!  The picture below shows off the owl hat that I have for sale and how good it looks on adults, like my brother!  It's not too late to buy your beanie to support the Ashleigh Mackay Aldersea Foundation!

11 days and counting!

Yes, 11 more days until I head up to Timberline and start the journey down!  Still need to make some more money!  Yesterday I made another attempt at a garage sale since my last one was a bust thanks the Mother Nature.  I can happily say that I raised over $150 selling items from my house as well as those generously donated by my neighbors.  One item donated by a neighbor was a little U of O onesie and matching ballcap.  In between "customers" I was inspired and came up with this Oregon Ducks Beanie.  Fortunately for all Oregonians, I am originally a Washingtonian and therefore have no particular alliance so a OSU one is on the way!

A Special Request

My cousin Kelly made a special request for a panda hat for her daughter.  I didn't see any patterns I liked online so I invented my own and I think it turned out pretty good!  Not bad for someone who has only been crocheting for 8 months!
