We have this pretty AMAZING store here in Maine called Mardens. It is a surplus store that is always full of great buy's, however items are typically not there for long and do not get replenished, their motto is "you should have bought it when you saw it at Mardens" so when I saw this Lion Brand bulky yarn for $1.99 a skein I had to grab it.
The flower was made with red heart LOVELY soft yarn holding two strands together for a bulky effect.
The colors complement each other so well. The yellow is a beautiful soft yellow that works just perfect.
The hat pattern is from "Buzzy Moms creation Etsy store"
