Can you tell what I used to make this fancy baby bonnet? I bought 3 matching ladies hankerchiefs from the local dollar store. They come in pairs but are packaged with two different ones in each package so I had to buy 3 packages. That just means I have three more to make another one! I lined it with plain white cotton. The brim is a wide piece of eyelet lace.( I had just enough) A little elastic in the back and pretty white ribbon for ties and voila! (It's hard to see but there is also a tiny bit of pink trim inserted where the brim meets the crown,)
I was on a roll so I decided to make this too!
Isn't this cute!? Pink camo for a future tom-boy and polka dots and ruffles for a little lady. As usual, I started with a pattern but had to make some adjustment for size and, well, just because I like to change things a bit. I have 4 more I'm working on, each one a little different. One will be hot pink leopard print with a coordinating floral brim, another is hunting camo with matching color stripes. I try to use coordinating fabrics but not 'match-ey, match-ey'. The last one will be a small floral print combined with a larger floral in coordinating colors.
I have a few more sewing projects that I need to get busy on also: decorative pillow cases, curtains, and some maternity tops for my daughter.
I also will be posting a couple of book reviews in the near future. But right now, I think I'll just enjoy watching my new grand-daughter sleeping peacefully in her swing.
