Low Entry Giveaway Ending Soon! The Perfect Crocheted Hat to Make Your Cutie Look Even Cuter!

So I'm the typical mom who thinks her child is the most beautiful thing God's ever created. There's nothing that could make her look even cuter, right? Oh, but there is.....

When I first browsed Jennifer's shop, Petunia and Ivy, I loved all of her designs, from her owl hat to her diaper covers. I contacted her about doing a review and we discussed what design I would like for my daughter. She had some great ideas and came up with a custom hat for me that incorporated all of my favorite components. Before I get to my review, here's a little info about Jennifer and a few pictures of her creations:


                   
"I am a part time stay at home mother to my adorable 4 year old daughter. I began crocheting four years ago after reading a how to book. Untill now my work has really been created for my daughter as well as my niece and nephew. They inspire me to be more creative and to keep crocheting new things. Family and friends have encouraged me to sell my items since I began. It wasn't untill February 2011 that I finally took their advice and opened up my shop on Etsy. I am thrilled to introduce you to my shop, Petunia and Ivy, and share my work with the rest of you! Enjoy!" - Jennifer

It bugs me that I can't figure out how to crochet....I've tried watching videos on tv and online but they go too fast and I have no idea what they're talking about! So it's really impressive to me that Jennifer was able to learn how to crochet so well just by reading a how to book. 

Here is the hat I received to review:


 

When I received the hat I was thrilled. Not having a picture to look at of the exact item I was receiving, all I could do was imagine what it would look like....it is SO much cuter than I'd imagined! I think it's such an adorable combination with the bear ears, rosette, and earflaps in....of course.....pink! The hat is very well made and has stood up to a lot of abuse from my daughter, since she likes to tug on the tassels when it's on her head, and yank and pull on all parts of it when it's off her head. None of the crochet work has come loose at all. It can be worn to keep your little one's head warm during the winter, but airy enough to wear during the spring too. This hat would be great for photo shoots or for everyday wear, and can be made to fit your child's head. Choose a design from Petunia and Ivy, or ask Jennifer to make you a custom!


Jennifer has agreed to giveaway a replica of the hat she made for my daughter....although I'm sure she'd be willing to tweak the design for you too ;)
