I'm sorry guys. There have already been so many pictures of this bonnet here.
But...I am posting it again! It's almost Easter after all and in case you are new to my blog and were in need of a bonnet pattern (like I was when I created it) I wanted to mention it.
Plus, selfishly-- I really miss this little baby girl and her soft little arms. I like to look back at her sweet little baby self.
The bonnet is adjustable and I had originally said it fit 6-24 months but I have had people make it and tell me it fits their older girls (5 or 6) too.
Here area few photos of my baby girl so you can see the progression of how it fits at different ages:
Around 11 months old
Same bonnet (and shirt as it turns out) 15 months old:
Same bonnet 2 years old:
(and desperately in need of an iron! please excuse the wrinkles)
So my baby girl is now almost 3 years old and it still fits her, but goodness help me...I can't get her to put it on for a photo.
Anyway, the pattern is available in my Etsy shop if you'd like to make one for your little girl. It's really easy to sew...totally doable if you are a new sewer.
I am thinking of making a new one for my little girl--in white linen. Her birthday happens to fall on Easter this year so I'd say that calls for an extra special outfit!
