Description

My mom wanted Ellie to have a bonnet and we couldn't find one in stores. One night after I put the baby to bed, I went into my sewing room and didn't come out until I had a finished product! I completely made it up as I went and just HOPED that it fit! Of course, now my mom thinks I should make one to match every outfit! Ha!

Oh, and it is reversible!

Too cute! I agree with your mom, Miss Ellie needs about 10 of these! What llind ofinterfacing did you use for the bill?

Thank you so much, everyone!
Terry, I just used a light-weight fusible that I had on hand. I ironed it onto one of the brim pieces, and felt it was too flimsy, so I ironed another piece onto the other fabric of the brim.
Jschlender, her cheeks are SOOOO good for smooching, and that's what they get every few minutes! I'm sure you'll see my little model a lot! ;)
