Back to crocheting beanies! We were invited to my college friend's son 1st birthday last weekend. Initially, I planned on buying a toy for our gift, but then I remembered that I have yarn stash for my future projects and gifts this coming holiday. So I decided to make a beanie for the birthday boy.
For the ears and snout, you can refer to this site. Then instead of crocheting the nose, I got an old button that I sewed over the snout.
I also sewed the buttons for the eyes.
And here is the final outcome. I have my ever willing model, my niece to have a nice shot when it is worn.
I hope the birthday boy will love his gift as much as I love making it for him. The money that was supposed to buy his gift was used for our transportation fee going to the party. So I was able to save! Talking about being frugal. :)
