Gray Beanie with Ear Flaps and Baby Doll Beanies

Little Miss E has her own collection of beanies for sure. Of course her baby dolls need beanies too!

She picked out some colors and said "baby! hat! yellow!" So we whipped up a few for them this evening, some from skeins and others with scrap yarn.



Ways to use scrap yarn:
  • baby doll beanies
  • tie up presents (in place of ribbon)
  • wrap around a wood craft stick to use a imaginative colorful sticks for sorting, pretend, etc.
  • finger puppets
What would you add to this list? Please share!
