I Love Baby Toes Hat
Who doesn’t love babies and all their little fingers and toes? They have no wear and tear, each one a pudgy little wonder. Babies have sweet breath and are as soft and pure as a body will ever be. This hat is a little tribute to brand new little fingers and toes. It makes a great gift for a baby shower or newborn gift. It only fits when they are small, but it will be a wonderful “keeper” to use for each baby, or to save for your baby’s someday baby… yes, it all goes by that fast!
