  1. Poppy Penguin is definitely on my to do list

  2. I love the garden baby pea cocoon. The hats are lovely too but not very practical here in the tropical warm weather of Africa. Babies tend to sweat too much in them. I would only make them as a gift for someone in colder climes. Thanks for sharing,
