This hat turned out so cute. I wanted it to look very different from the first penguin hat and I think I succeeded. I love the floppy little penguin feet and I particularly adore the giant pom-pom. I also stuffed the belly just a teeny bit so it has a nice plump look to it.
The hat didn't stay on terribly long, but the cracker covered baby was so cute I had to take more pictures.
