I just love this bonnet. In fact, I can't get enough of it. I'm going to make myself one because the cuteness is off the radar.
Little Tatum Fei (aka Potatum in Riley-speak) turned ONE in June and this bonnet was whipped up in her honor and mailed to her mailbox. I sure do hope it fits her head...having not seen her in person for 8 months...I used a general size. Pattern sold here.
I bought this pattern when I was hugely pregnant and collecting patterns and fabric to make (what I thought was my soon-to-be-born daughter) cute things like bonnets and sundresses. However, Abram was born (and I'm SOOOOO glad he was!) so the girl patterns went on the shelf. Fortunately most of my friends have daughters exclusively so they'll reap the benefits....for now!
Our dear friend Chris had a birthday too. I know, I know, what do you sew for a guy? Not a bonnet for pete's sake! Or a purse. BUT-- being the techno-savvy guy he is, I found this pattern for an awesome laptop protector. Now, THAT'S something he could use. (Actually not really use...since he already had a nice neoprene one, but this one is way more homey.)
