These baby bonnets are so sweet and easy to make! The bonnet will fit a newborn up to a year old. The size can be adjusted as the baby grows by loosening or tightening the ribbon knots on the front and back casings of the bonnet. A sewing machine was used to make sample bonnets. They can be sewn by hand as long as you keep the lace and ribbon embellishments simple. Ignore instructions for lace if you are making a bonnet for a boy. The bonnets can be made from men’s handkerchiefs. They make wonderful gifts for newborns along with the poem included in pattern attached to the bonnet or printed on a card. Instructions are also given to make the bonnet from light to medium weight fabric instead of a handkerchief. Instructions are included to dye handkerchief with onion skins for a bonnet that looks like a vintage heirloom – the technique is similar to tea dyeing.
This PDF e-pattern includes a measurement for fabric square, a detailed materials list, clear instructions written in English and step-by-step photographs.
