One of my largest "9th hour" orders for this season was a family set of bearded hats. Bearded earflap hats. So I made all the beanie parts first, went back and added the ear flaps and the braids/UNC logo, then I crocheted all of the beards and sewed in a pair of buttons inside each hat so that the beards would be detachable. I could literally feel the heat on my crochet hooks. lol
Well, the order is done and here they are:
These are without the beards.
For Momma Bear, Papa Bear, and the two Sister Bears.
..and for when they choose to be all bearded up!
