Aplets & Cottlets

Posted on

Here is my latest sweet treat that I am calling Aplets & Cotlets. Now that I have confirmed the spelling of the famous fruit candy from Liberty Orchards I am thinking I should rename that bonnet- apples and apricots… Wow I didn’t know they left out a ‘p’ in apple that has really got me confused.  Anyway the candy is sweet and so is this new bonnet.  Here is Squeak modeling in the garden and she has discovered the solar light stake nearby the blanket- it would come in handy as we fended off the crawly bugs while taking our pictures…

This is the first time that I have used flowers that I didn’t make myself on a bonnet.  I pull them all apart- taking the plastic forms out of the centers and then arrange them in a pleasing configuration and applied a really cute button and some pony beads for a wonderful effect.

The fabric is vintage hand-me-downs from my stepmother’s mom.  Beautifully repurposed here for Squeak. Here is a last picture of this adorable bonnet the perfect color combination for summer.
