Joyce Ann Bonnet

I recently was able to test a super cute cap and bonnet pattern by Stitchwerx.
I sewed up the XXS view A on my 2 month old in a quilting cotton.

The outer fabric is from the thrift shop while the lining is from Connecting Threads.

And, the ties--those beautiful, lovely, lacey ties! I have no idea where I originally got them--I think they were tied on a gift or something and I hoarded them away, but they were meant for this project, I think!

Ha, no--she's not sitting by herself yet--I'm holding her!

This pattern has 3 views--two for the summer, one for the winter and sizes galore--from preemie/nb all the way up to adult!
I plan on sewing up new bonnets for the girls next summer, and if you see me walking around with one--don't be too surprised.

It reminds me of Laura Ingalls from the books, 'Little House on the Prairie.' I loved those books as a child and still do!

So, make sure to hop over to Stitchwerx and get your copy of this great pattern!


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear your thoughts and ideas!
