Good intentions...

Lydia is really getting into playing "dress-up" lately, but doesn't have a lot of "dress-up" clothes.  So that was one thing I wanted her to have for Christmas - play clothes for all the things she likes to pretend to be.  One of those things is a lion, so I wanted to make a little lion's mane headband sort of thing, complete with ears.  I pulled out the closest colors of yarn I had, figured out how to do a crochet loop stitch, and went to work.  Here is the result.

So, what do you see in this photo?  Cute dress-up accessory?  Or 70's bath mat of doom?

either way, it's going to look exceptionally cute once she puts it on! :)

I'm impressed that you can just whip something like that up! Very cute.

Lydia reminds me so much of Daniel. He was forever changing clothes all day long, being something new all the time. He had a drawer under his bed where he kept all his alter egos. -laffin'

I love the lion-wig! You never fail to amaze me with your resourcefulness.
