Feeling Gnomey

I was feeling inspired the other night, and whipped up this gnome hat for my daughter. She woke up while I was making it, so I got to try it on her, and she was excited about it. She loved it. I told her I was going to put white polka dots on it, and she very strongly said she didn't want WHITE polka dots.... she wanted RED polka dots. After trying to explain that red polka dots on a red hat wouldn't work, I tucked her back in bed, and went back to add polka dots.

This morning I tried it on her, and she was NOT happy that I had put white polka dots on it. I had hoped she had forgotten. She declared she didn't like the hat (You just can't win with a 2 yr old). She did let me take some pictures of her in it..... but she was goofy and not holding still at all.

Anyway.. here are some pictures of the reluctant model in the hat. I think the hat is adorable. Not sure if it's one we'll list in our shop or not... undecided, but it is cute! I might increase the number of polka dots on it....
