I can't believe it took me a week to get it together! You see, I had quite a few hick-ups in being able to get things together, but we'll get to that in a minute.
I have decided to give away this handmade vintage style Newborn Baby bonnet!
It didn't take me long to decide to make a bonnet, it's just everything that came up in between that was aggravating. Moments after I announced on my Facebook page that I would be hosting this giveaway, my Mother became ill and ended up spending the weekend at the Hospital. All is well now, but it took a while for life to settle back to normal.
I started off by grabbing McCall's 4865 from my stash. You would think that, being McCall's, that everything would be straight forward and come together easily.... no...
I cut out a newborn size and gave it a large seam allowance.. and ended up with something big enough to fit my 2 year old Niece..
I pondered for a day or so on what to do next, when I remembered I had Vintage Simplicity 2656 in my stash as well.
This pattern was a joy to work with! And it came together like a dream!
It is modeled here by my favourite baby doll when I was little, who's name was changed so many times I can't remember what it was. Chrissy, I think... She used to coo and cry, wake and sleep, but alas no more.. :(
The bonnet is mostly hand sewn with white hand embroidery across the band. The embroidery is based on a vintage pattern I found through Pinterest.
It is made in Newborn size and gathers at the back in a sweet little padded "Button" There are ribbon ties that can be tied in a bow under the chin.
