So I have jumped on the bandwagon with this lovely little item. I broke down the other day and bought the pattern and created my own last night. They are so cute and make everyone laugh. Dual purpose items are always a nice thing especially if they serve a valid purpose for mother’s (I tend to be a little partial to mom’s) These beanies were originally intended to curtail the sometimes offense remarks that breastfeeding mom’s get from other people when breastfeeding in public. The maker of this ingenius pattern has done a wonderful job of incorporating humor with functionality 🙂
And of course there is the gag gift side of this item as well. This pattern came with the directions to make it up to adult size (and trust me I have already had requests for them) I am thinking bachlorette, baby showers, halloween, all sorts of occassions this can be used for. I also think it would be a great way to promote breast cancer awareness in a humorous way. I have seen numerous people walking around with I love boobies squishy bracelets, belts, you name it on. Hmmm, maybe I should make a hat that says that on it, but that shall be a later project 🙂
For those of my fellow crocheters that may want to try this pattern (trust me it is so simple and easy) here is the ORIGINAL designer of the boobie beanie http://www.facebook.com/#!/boobiebeanies I unfortunately went through a scam artist that had ripped off the pattern from this wonderful designer and I am kicking myself for not doing more research before buying the pattern. This is my little way of saying I’m sorry and hopefully bringing her just a little business to make up for the loss of mine (if that really even makes any sense lol) Go on over to her page and check out her items, they are wonderful!
