My First Bonnet

Posted on

Here is where my bonnet obsession began.  A simple pattern, some scraps and quilt fat quarters were the basis for this purple bonnet.

Here is the detail on the fabric flowers.  My first attempt here. I serged the strips of purple fabric with a soft ruffle and then wound them into a flower shape.  A repurposed button is the center.

Here is our Squeak with her Daddy enjoying an evening on the patio. The great thing about these bonnets is that they really do have enough brim to shade their face- yet they are far enough out of their range of vision that they don’t seem to want to pull them off.
