Flower cut out anyone...

Two of my latest creations :)

Same hat start but I modified the original pattern (pattern by Jamila Nurse can be found on Ravelry here ) to make one a beanie instead of a sun hat!!!
As always willing to make for swap.

Sun Hat

Little Israel as my model although hat is a size 1 so way too big for him at almost 3 months LOL
