Baby Bonnets for A Friend

The other day I came across a website that sells baby bonnets and I thought of making one even though I don't have a baby girl, but I wanted to try one and give it to a friend of mine and see if it works or not. I made these bonnets a long while ago and I just now got to posting it since I wanted to wait until my baby bonnets make it in the mail. The other day I got a confirmation that my gifts came in the mail, and I was happy that her little girl loves it. Nelda (I call her Ate Nelds) is a good friend of mine from Arizona and she has two kids, one boy and one little girl. I told her I was going to make a bonnet for her little girl, but I ended up making two of them. I wasn't satisfied with the first one that I made (the pink one) so I came up with two. I didn't have any idea at all whatsoever as to how to do it, but I made my own pattern and this is how it came out. I can say that the more I make these bonnets, the more I get better at it. Hopefully!

(My very own template)

I am not quite sure about this, but I managed to make two bonnets and the only setback was that I didn't have any interfacing left so I wasn't able to use it for my bonnets which helps support the shape of the bonnet especially for the hood part. At least now I know what to do. If you happen to have your own bonnet template to share, then let me know!

I think she likes this polka dot one better. LOL! She looks good though. I am glad you like it little girl K. Her mother told me she didn't even take it off which is nice because some babies don't like to wear hats at all.

    I think you meant South Korea is the safer place to visit because I know North Korea they don't allow visitors or they are pretty strict and scary up there. Thanks for visiting! See you around.
