The other day, I went shopping for yarn at Hobby Lobby. There was a huge sale on yarn, and I just had to be there! I got enough for about 7 different projects, so I’m super excited. And Sandy the Starfish was the first project I made with said yarn.
This starfish is so adorable and perfect for babies. I didn’t think it would be as cute as it is. That is always the best: when you make something and it turns out even better than the picture you had in your head. And my baby girl just loves it!
Teething is in full swing with my almost 6 month old, so she is really appreciating these teething rings! She loves Olly’s spiral legs and Sandy’s little points. And to make that girl smile gives so much more meaning to life. I mean, doesn’t this just make your day?
