Winter Bonnet

Scarlett had her first birthday a week ago.  I had trouble working out what presents to get her since we have a house full of toys already.  I thought that I would have to give her a couple of Mummy-made presents along with a small assortment of new toys/books (and send some old toys to be recycled to new family members).  The first thing I made was this winter Little Betty bonnet.  Remember this old post showing off Scarlett's summer bonnet which she adored and wore everywhere? 


Little Betty recently released the pattern so I thought I would have a go at making a winter one.  The pattern is very well written and the bonnet was whipped together in a day (even with lots of interruptions by the small people!!).


The interior is some Robert Kaufman flannel I had left over from the infinity scarves I made earlier this year (blogged here & here).  It is the softest flannel I have come across.  The exterior is a fine pin wale cord from Spotlight.


As soon as Scarlett saw this bonnet she wanted to wear it, which is great since I struggled to get her to wear a beanie this winter.  You can get the pattern here.

PS:  Did you spot the second handmade present?  I'll blog about that later.

  2. Thanks, it has been so handy to have. I really need to get some more fabric to make another one in a different colourway.
