Some very retro/traditional babywear - bonnets! I used a pattern and tutorial from Purl Bee. It's very easy and quick... I finished off one of these during one day's naptimes. And I had another partially cut out!
Valori Wells Wrenly Wildfield print. Only scraps remain. Even though it has a lot more pink than I normally go for, I do love it! Good thing I still have lots of the Christmas version left!
Wonder Clips were up to the job! Love those little snippets!
Once I finished the first bonnet, I just kept on going. It looked a little large for GT, so I whipped up a 3-6 month version. The pattern comes in five sizes: 0-3, 3-6, 6-12, 12-18, 18-24 months.
And then it was determined that this style could work for BT too. So I grabbed some Ann Kelle foxes and got to sewing again!
I can hardly wait to get them back out in the stroller! They pretty much win best dressed in the family on any given day anyway, but these will hopefully shield them from a little too much sun in the weeks to come!
I'm linking up today with TGIFF @ Things I Make, as well as Finish Up Friday @ Crazy Mom Quilts.
Those bonnets are adorable! Hurrah for quick finishes!ReplyDelete
Adorable!!! I hope you get to get out and show off those bonnets and of course....the kids!ReplyDelete
those foxy little heads together are adorable! They are conspiring about how to get out of the house I bet you.ReplyDelete
The bonnets are adorable and I agree with Adrienne, they are making plans. Great finish and a fast one at that.ReplyDelete
Such cute bonnets, and what a sweet picture of the twins!ReplyDelete
Such adorable pictures Jenn. After I got through being distracted by glimpses of sweet little cheeks and hands and arms, I loved the bonnets you made! You will have the best dressed little cuties for sure!ReplyDelete
Those are SO adorable!!! Seriously!? I might need to try to make some of those for my little pumpkin when he arrives (I'm not sure my older two would wear them). Sooo sweet!ReplyDelete
Those babies are so adorable! And your bonnets are cute too :) Love them!ReplyDelete
oh my goodness these are adorable!ReplyDelete
These are great! I really love the fabric on the first one. Thanks for linking up with me for TGIFF this week!ReplyDelete
The bonnets are stinking cute. I did break down and bought the rainbow pack of wonder clips when they were on Massdrop. I already have 50 of the red but just loved the multi colored ones.ReplyDelete
What sweet bonnets and peaks of BT and GT! And I am so surprised you do not already have the rainbow clover clips!ReplyDelete
They are cute as a button! I have some rainbow wonder clips, they are gorgeous ... (enabler alert!)ReplyDelete
So stinkin' cute! What great fabrics you chose to rock those bonnets. Come on sunny days!ReplyDelete
Love these and your cute photos! Well done.ReplyDelete
I'm glad BT got one too. They are so adorable!!! I thought you already bought rainbow ones....LOL...I think I want some too.ReplyDelete
I love the fabrics you used, especially the Valori Wells one. Yep, sometimes even wonder clips need to step aside and make way for the big guns – pins.ReplyDelete
