I’ve been a busy bee

So I’ve finished the second slouchy beanie that I was making, I hope you can see the puff stitches a little better in the grey. This ones a little tight for my liking but I’m hoping it stretches out after a few times wearing it.

I have also found and made these cute little bows! They take about 5 minutes to make and are so easy.
