A caricature of a bonnet

This is the completed baby bonnet I mentioned earlier.

I thought it looked cute.

The longer I stare at it, the more I think it looks weird. Is it the pom-pom's? Is it the sherbety color combo? It almost looks like it's making fun of itself. Like it's the Saturday Night Live version of a baby bonnet. Like - hey... being a plain-old baby bonnet isn't cute enough - I have pom-pom's too! Oh dear, I made the cheerleading version of a baby bonnet, didn't I?

Or better yet, it's the costume version of a baby bonnet. If an old man were to dress up as a baby on halloween, this is the kind of bonnet he would wear.
