During uncertain times, I seek comfort in making. Sparkle Smush Hat is the perfect project to bling joy and happiness. With a luxurious fluffy smushy Suri Alpaca paired with Mega Bling sparkles, the combo makes a super soft and sparkly fabric. This hat will hug your head, keep you warm, and make you razzle dazzle.
