Baby Bonnet Tutorial

This weekend my twin cousins came up for a Cousins Craftathon Weekend. We literally sewed all weekend and came up with a bunch of fun stuff to show you this week. Here is a picture of my darling, cute, gorgeous cousins. Yes, it is a sin to be that beautiful!

They crack me up with their obsession with baby stuff. Neither one of them have children yet but they LOVES babies. They were kissing on my daughter’s sweet cheeks all weekend. They are always sewing baby stuff and come up with cute patterns.

So Lindsay (to the left) came up with an ADORABLE baby bonnet pattern that she is willing to share with ya’ll! Here is the printable version for an infant sized baby bonnet. And here is the printable pattern pieces.

After you are finished put it on the cutest baby within reach…

Notes:
Disregard the notes about the ruffle on the actual pattern and follow the directions for cutting the ruffle on the tutorial.

If you want to make a 3-6 month bonnet enlarge the pattern by 108%. If you want a to make a 6-12 month bonnet enlarge the pattern by 125%.

But as you increase the bonnet size, naturally you need to increase the length of the strip because you want it to ruffle. You really could make the strip as long as you want it (provided that it is at LEAST the length of the “top” piece.) The longer it is, the more “ruffle”. Depends on the look you’re going for.

    Would it be totally inappropriate for me to make a couple for my sons??

    Awww, I think that's so cute & if I had a sewing machine (or could sew very fast by hand) I'd totally make one or two or four for my niece. I love baby bonnets and you can't find them in stores very often.

  5. I wish I had this a few weeks ago. Mabry is going as Little Bo Peep for Halloween. I ended up going all the way to Amish country a few states away to get her a bonnet.

  6. You know you love having a girl. Best EVER!!!!!!

    p.s. Your cousins are gorgeous. I hate them.

    Just kidding.

    I heart your blog. I spend much of my "downtime" at work lurking blogs. I tend to find blogs of blogs that I check out the first page or two and see if I'm interested in what they have to say….well, yours was a first for me. I kept going and going and going until I made it to your very first post. I love all your ideas, before/afters, and your trust in God. You have been an inspiration to me and(although I've spent nearly my ENTIRE work day reading this – good thing I didn't have too many patients) you have topped my list of blogs to read. Just thought I'd say "hi" since I'll be lurking (don't worry, I'm a nice one – you won't even know I'm here).

    Thanks for the inspiration, now I just need to decide where to start on my home….if you're bored, come on over. =)

    Take Care and God Bless

    Cute bonnet, and can't wait to see everything else you have been sewing up. I had everything ready to comment on the bead post, and with getting ready to go out of town, I remembered yesterday, that I forgot to comment. Hate that I missed that one. Jackie

  14. So very cute! Who can resist a baby in a bonnet! Love it! Thanks for sharing

  15. Thank you for the adorable pattern! I have a shower this next week and two of my sisters are expecting babies – this will be perfect!

  16. Thank you SO much for sharing, I have been searching for a good baby bonnet pattern to make for my friend's baby and this one is perfect!

  17. Thanks! :) Your cousins ARE beautiful…they look like 2 Nicole Kidmans! :)

  18. Ok, check that…the one on the left, in the white, looks like Meg Ryan. The one in the red looks like Nicole Kidman. Still…celebrities!

  19. I tried clicking on the links for both patterns and both showed up on file den as not being available. Do you have an updated link for either of the patterns? I’m hoping to make this – it is so adorable!

  20. I have been looking for a great bonnet pattern and found yours on pinterest! Sadly, your pattern was posted many years ago and when I clicked to download the pattern it was no longer there. Can you help me out?
