Baby Bonnet

So far, our babies have been winter babies and had knit hats that just wouldn’t do for the summer. I decided that our baby girl would need a bonnet. Of course a sunhat is a little more practical and I do have a couple of handmedown sunhats that will probably be used more. However, I have always loved bonnets and this is my perfect excuse. I made this bonnet with white pucker fabric scattered with rosebuds, quintessential baby girl material. I used a scrap of lace and then two widths of white satin ribbon; one for the bow in the front and one for the bow in the back. Now I will just have to wait and see if it fits our baby! It should at some point in the summer at least.
