Very Hungry Caterpillar Hat

It was time for our neighbor boy's 3rd Birthday.  Since I have been making the "Very Hungry Caterpillar" toy, I decided he needed that, the book and a hat to go with it.

Well, the toy was done, the book was bought but I still had to make the hat. So he got the first two for his birthday and the hat came a week later.

You know how you never know how a child will react to a gift, specially when it isn't a "fun toy" like the big, motorized, building toys, plus,  it's your birthday and all you can think is "open it."

On Friday, the birthday boy, his brother and momma joined the husband and I for the very popular Western New York Friday Fish Fry at a little neighborhood diner we have grown to love. Somewhere during conversation and eating momma said she had a thank you for us and since we live so far apart (a standard joke, our driveways are lined up with each other yet we never get things to each other on time) she hasn't had time.

After we got home from supper, and before the husband and I got inside, here comes momma, and the birthday boy, little brother was still buckled up in his car seat, with the card. I knew there would be a birthday pix in it . . and was it ever cute. But, behind it was this picture.

Looks like the birthday boy liked his presents, doesn't it?

If you would like to buy the pattern, it is available for $ 0.99 in my Ravelry Store, "The Fur~Babies Momma." Just click the buy now button to be transported to my shop.

 ***100% of the purchase price for the pattern goes to Natalie's 2nd Chance Shelter, a no-kill dog shelter in my home state of Indiana. It is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization***
