BEAK:
Chain 7. Sc in 2nd ch from hook and each across (6).
Sc2tog first two sts, sc in next 2 sts, sc2tog (4).
Sc2tog twice (2).
Sc2tog (1).
Chain 1, sc around the entire beak. Leave a long tail for sewing onto the hat.

You can use the above picture as a reference for sewing on the eyes (buttons) and beak.

For the braids, do this twice: Cut 9 pieces of blue yarn about 30" yarn. Fold it in half and feed the folded part through the bottom of the flap (between the last two hdc2tog). Pull the tails through the loop created. Pull tight to secure and then braid. Knot at the end.

For the "feathers" on top: Cut 6 pieces of blue yarn about 12" long. Fold it in half and feed it through a space in the top of the hat. Pull the tails through the loop and make the knot tight so that it won't come in done. Trim the ends from the braids and the "feathers" so the yarn ends are even.

Mail time!!

I have to admit... The Blues Clues song is playing in my head!!

Don't you just love days when you get a lot of mail? Especially when they are packages!!


My daughter's birthday present from my parents is a crib for her Bitty Baby... And then there are a few other things I ordered, like a plaque for my dining room from Alphadorable and a necklace from her new store, Adora.

Have you gotten any goodies in the mail recently?
