This etsy shop offers handmade knit hats in the shape of fruit, flowers, cupcakes, etc. Not to mention matching mittens. If you are more ambitious you can try and knit one of these yourself. Here is a pattern for a strawberry hat: The Golden Fleece Strawberry Hat

THESE are too cute Kathleen!!! You just gave me a grand idea. These hats would be great for a halloween matching tutu. Like for example, a green and red tutu for the watermelon hat. or a black and yellow for the bumblebee! Love them all!!!!!!!! Welcome to the world of blogging!
