Day 8. Don’t Be Jelly. Toddler beanie.

Here is the latest design from RRC!


My son has been begging me for a Green hat. I ended up making it sizable for ages 1-3 years. So it fits his brother too. He even named it himself. He said it looked like a jellyfish. It’s also green. The color of jealousy, which is a very relevant lesson for my three year old, now that his younger brother is almost as fast as he is when getting a toy!!! So we tell him when he gets jealous to “don’t be jelly”. It works half the time. Anyway I hope you enjoy this fun and easy beanie I came up with.
