Pink Bonnet is made from Swiss Flannel fabric.
I love Baby Bonnets!
And I love Babies in bonnets.
This used to be in my OFB Shop, used as a display.
I meet many nice people in my line of work. And I find Sewing ladies to be extra nice people. One lady I met was a Doll Maker many years ago and she would sew for her dolls. I think Carmel is now in her 90's, and she has given me this beautiful doll head that was mounted on a stand.
Perfect for displaying Baby Bonnets.
I used my pattern "Antique Christening Bonnet Collection" to make this bonnet.
This pretty little bonnet was featured in the September/October 2011 issue of Sew Beautiful magazine (page 54). The article did not have the Bonnet pattern in it but it did have all the instructions to create this Snail Shirred ruffle. And the embroidery design, too.
Snail Shirring (a name I kind of made up) is an old technique used to gather fabric in a pretty way.
I added a pretty Rosette to each side using Silk Satin Ribbon. I do have a kit for a different bonnet with instructions for Snail Shirring. But not as warm and snugly as this one.
I have a few more Bonnets to show you in the coming days....
