Say Cheese :D

I have a new pattern that you're going to love! I made this pattern for my daughter's 2nd birthday. 

When the paparazzi (my aunt) comes around, we have to be really creative to get my little one to look at the camera. It is utterly exhausting and extremely embarrassing to try and get a good smiling picture... just imagine flailing your arms, making crazy loud noises, jumping around like you've stepped on hot coals (nice image, right?!).  I decided I needed to try something new. I had seen the camera buddies for a camera lens and so I thought maybe that would work. I figured I could make one and make it something that I know would interest her, Minnie Mouse! I just winged the pattern but I wrote it down as I was doing it so I could share it with you. I hope you like it and it helps make your little one's photo shoots smooth sailing! **I wrote the pattern on my phone just going very quickly. Please let me know if you find any errors or need any help deciphering how it is written**
