Free Crochet Pattern : Shark Headpiece

It's time for a new headpiece pattern. 
These hats are designed for small dogs, cats or stuffed animals. 


Sharks have been very popular this year. I recently got to make these darling Shark Booties! So cute!  

Shark Slipper Socks pattern by Stacie

I have sold several Shark Cape Sets and patterns too. 


These sharks were my inspiration for a jawesome 
new headpiece for my Chihuahua Lucy! 

She is a model in training.
