And surprise, surprise. Here we have . . . yet another bonnet!
Can you tell I'm having fun with these?
Made this one from 6 jelly-roll strips sewn to a cotton-batting foundation in strip-piece fashion. Here's how the back looks. After the strips are sewn, they're trimmed even with the foundation piece and then it's ready to assemble.
The lining is double-sided flannel. I basted a strip of crochet lace to the brim before sewing the top and lining together. (The basic bonnet pattern with directions is in both my books.)
Such a cozy little topper, like a quilt for the noggin.
And speaking of quilts . . . Miss Thumbelina is quite toasty under this little doll quilt which just happens to be today's surprise give-away. Just leave a comment and/or share your favorite dance song and I'll toss your name in our spinning bonnet number generator thingy. Will announce the winner on Monday. Good Luck!
