Huge sigh of relief

I'm not sure there are adequate words to describe how relieved I am that the fire fighter's helmet isn't going into the "Total Disaster" column. It took three runs through a hot wash cycle (two with a couple of towels last night and one more with the first load of laundry this morning), but it ended up close to the right size! The diameter is a bit snug on Bug's head, but I am drying it over a plastic coffee can to stretch it in that direction a bit and I think it will be just fine. I still think it's a little on the tall side, but it might be fine once the front patch and embroidery are in place.
