I added beads to this hat, and have since picked up some really cute, shimmery seed beads that look incredible on the hats! They sparkle in the light, and best of all - they aren't a choking hazard. I pre-string all the beads before knitting, so unless the hat is cut with scissors there isn't any way for the beads to fall off or be pulled off.
I have 2 more cupcake hat orders to fill, and then I'll try and put some up in my etsy store! Email me if you are interested in purchasing one for your little lovey!
