From A - Matching Set

A quick evening of sewing and with the help of Rae's detailed Peekaboo Bonnet pattern and I had this adorable little cap.

Finished Bonnet

Scrumptious!! I love the lack of raw edges and the fact that it is reversible, which doubles its utility. Rae's pattern was well written and easy to follow. I did find some of the seams a little awkward due to the bonnet's small size and round shape but i suspect that that was more of an Amanda vs. 3D sewing issue than a real issue. Having made one of these, I am confident that the next one will be even easier.

As with the matching dress, I used fabric, binding and cording that I purchased at Fabricland.

Finished Bonnet

The only change I will make to the next one will be to interface the patterned band before attaching it. I found that with the way my bonnet came together it tends to collapse/wrinkle.

Now my friend's sweet little baby will have a new outfit to add to her summer wardrobe!

Thanks to all who entered our giveaway. Our winner will be announced in the next couple of days.
