Day 37. Artic Fury Aviator Hat

My oldest son henry has been BEGGING me to make pom poms. He’s obsessed with my pom Pom maker. It’s magic, I know it! šŸ˜‰ I’ve also been quite homesick seeing all these newscasts calling for snow nationwide. I HAD to design a snowy inspired hat for him with a huge Pom on top of course. Here is what I came up with :).
