Messy Bun Hats - Farm Animals

Messy Bun Hats - Farm Animals
Good evening, everyone, and God bless.  I decided to move forward with a third collection in my Messy Bun Hats Collections:  1.  Woodland Animals; 2.  Arctic Animals; and, now, 3.  Farm Animals.

I have really enjoyed working on these hats.  They truly are a lot of fun and it brings back the kid in you remembering funny moments playing outside - or, at least, this has been the case for me.  I didn't grow up in the electronic age so spending a lot of time outside was the "norm" for all kids. 

Just in case you haven't seen the Woodland set or the Arctic set, I will include the links to each of them.
