All I basically know how to crochet are basic beanies, so to jazz things up a bit I started sewing faces on them. Buttons and felt are my weapons of choice, the mixed media route. So I thought I'd share two of my little beanies.

Penguin head! The pompom is a little large, I know. I tend to get carried away when making them because I think the bigger they are, the funnier they are.  Grin

Panda head! This was specifically made for my friend. The panda has little black button eyes that are kind of hard to see and it also has ear flaps.

I'm lucky that I have friends who embrace their inner child and are willing to wear these things in public. Smiley

As children, we all live in a world of imagination, of fantasy, and for some of us that world of make-believe continues into adulthood.

No, I like to rock n' roll all night and "part" of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1 till 3.

Haha! Love them! I always thought animal face beanies were completely underrated! Glad to see a fellow craftster agreeing  Smiley
