Aukies Designer Headwear on Etsy & GIVEAWAY

**This Contest is Closed.  Congrats to Amy C.!**
I found this wonderful shop selling handmade hats for baby on Etsy, called Aukies Designer Headwear.  The shop owner, who likes to go by "Aukies" is a teacher and a mom, and crochets most of her hats in the evening when things quiet down.  She loves coming up with new styles and color combos. 
Her mother taught her the art of crocheting at the age of 5.  Later, she started following pattern books but found most of the styles outdated so what did she do?  Create her own, of course! She began making funky little hats to give to friends and family and had so much fun making them that she decided to make a little business out of it.


I so love her hats, and I asked her to tell me her two favorites.  Says Aukies, "The flapper, because it looks so cute on little girls and the newsboy because it is just a cool little hat that suits both boys and girls."  These two styles are pictured here in this post.
Aukies is dedicated to great customer service, and stands by her product, offering a money back guarantee. 

Aukies is offering FREE SHIPPING to all of my readers.  Just use the coupon code "Penny-Pinching Mama Blog" in your message to seller when checking out.
