This was a fun project to make bonnets for my girls to wear at the Pioneer Day parade this coming Saturday. Michael & Addi are so stinking cute & I think they look adorable in their bonnets! I got the pattern from the website Mother Earth News. I didn't count the hours but it definitely took me longer than the "under two hours" they claim, but I think they came out pretty well considering that I'm definitely not a seamstress! In fact, this project was sort of a "bust the sewing machine out of the box & figure out how to use it" project more than a "hey, let's make bonnets" project. It was pretty fun though & now I'm not so scared of my sewing machine!!!
Ok, so I'm really proud of these little bonnets. I don't sew much at all so these were quite a project & I'm so excited about how well they turned out. To celebrate I'm going to try linking this post to my friend's Sew&Tell blog. Wish me luck!!
