These puppy dog hats are so cute to make and see on children. My daughter loves dogs and our family dog is a yellow lab! So she wanted me to make a yellow hat to match her dog. I really love how the ears turned out on this puppy dog hat. It is so cute to see the ears flop up and down when she wears this hat!
