So you probably don’t want to hear this but I think I will try to make one of those for my Boxer this weekend. The Irish Festival is in Dallas and she has to dress up to represent NORCAL Boxer Rescue in the parade. This Bonnet will match the dress I made her.

On another note I would love to win that bonnett for my someday daughter. Or to give to one of my friends if they will stop having boys.

Love your blog!
Karen

I recently found your blog and this new tutorial will make a PERFECT gift for my sister’s baby girl. I plan to use our grandmother’s old hankie, so appropriate since baby-to-be will be named after her. Also planning to make a matching wrap dress using your tutorial. Thank you!!!

I check your blog every day! You have inspired me to reevaluate how I shop and to repurpose items that I was no longer wearing/using. Your blog also totally and completely started my crafty blogs addiction. Seriously, thank you!

P.S. I would love, love, loooooove that bonnet for my baby, Lola!

I have a very cute little baby girl that would look absolutely adorable in a bonnet this summer! My cousin has a cute new baby. If not maybe I’ll just have to make her one myself.

Good work ! Keep us posting, you are very good writer.

Thank you so much. I love your tutorials they are soooooooo easy to follow. I have been looking at this bonnet for months and wanting to make it, and I just got my hands on a hankie. This was so easy my little lady wasn’t loving it cause she couldn’t rub the fuzz on her head but it looks sooo cute on her. I will definitely be making these for baby gifts. Thank you so much for all your great tutorials.

I have tried to click on the link above to see your pattern, and it won’t let me, it says it is a dangerous site that might harm my computer. Can you post it via another link? I’d love to see this and think it would be a very fun baby gift idea. Thanks for posting it in the first place and thanks for your efforts to make it available to us all! Love your blog. Great ideas and inspiration. Dona

Clicking on the photo will take you to the tutorial. The link that is there is where I originally debuted this tutorial and it looks like something is wrong with that site.
