Sew Sew's Stitching.

Another pretty Show and Share at the Sew Sew's.  This lovely little bonnet will be sent off to a special baby as a gift.  The Smocking and Embroidery is beautiful.

Lorraine made the bonnet using the pattern in AS & E magazine.  Issue #39 from 1997.

I like the way she finished the Bonnet Tie where it is attached to the Bonnet.  With tiny Featherstitching!  How clever.   It is a double fold, stitched to the bonnet, then Featherstitched over.

Lorraine tapered the ruffled bonnet brim. Wider at the top of the bonnet and narrows slightly toward the sides.   She learned how to do this from Laurie's blog, SewNSew's Sewing Journal.

Visit Laurie to see how it's done!
It's cute!

Hi Jeannie. I couldn't find an email address, so I'm sending it this way. First of all your patterns are exactly what I've been looking for. We're adopting our 5th child (2 biological and 2 girlies from Guatemala). This baby is home grown here in the good Ol' USA, and isn't due until next spring. I have 2 of your daygown patterns, but I REALLY want the cummer clothes pattern. I live in the deep south, and these patterns will be perfect for our baby. God has His own hand all over this adoption. I wish I knew you, so I could tell you all the miracles we've already seen. I make all my girlies clothes, but I didn't have them as infants. I'm going to start making an entire newborn wardrobe. I know that sewing for my baby will help me to bond and really become his mommy. I just KNOW it's a boy! I've spent too many hours on your blog lately, but you've given me such inspiration! I can't wait to get started on some gowns. Do you have any of the summer clothes patterns left, or do you know where I can get one? I can't stand baby boys dressed like miniature men. I kept my now teenage boys in "froo Froo" as they call it now. I am praying you have one left that I can buy. I can't wait to hear from you.
