Years ago, I was at a moms meeting and a new mom showed up with a very similar hat on her baby. I instantly loved it, but I guess we did not click, because I think I chased her badgering her for more information on the bonnet so I could make one too. I did fudge one and made a pattern for #3. Well, I found this pattern at a simplicity pattern sale. Now I bought this after I swore off any more children, so my mom scratched her head on why I would still buy it. But I had to have it.
I used all the scraps I could find to make this one. It came together quick. There are 2 pieces to cut, first you cut 2 layers of fabric and 1 of interfacing. The second, is the overlay. I almost skipped the overlay, but decided to try it any how. I love it, it makes it so cute. Now the nice part about this pattern is this specific pattern gives you the pattern for each size. How nice that I did not have to be stuck making a copy of the pattern. I will say, I did not bother reading the instructions. I just threw it together.
I cannot wait for her tiny head to get bigger and for her to be able to hold it up on her own. She will be the cutest. Yes, I did put this on her to model while she was sleeping. That is what proud mommas do.
