Girls Winter Bonnet - Version 2

I decided that Scarlett needed a second bonnet to co-ordinate with all her pink clothes.  The other bonnet goes well with purples and corals but not the pinks.  I do love pink in every shade but I do try to dress Scarlett in other colours too.  We actually do a lot of plum/purplish shades & dusty pinks and mauves which really suit her fair/reddish complexion.

This bonnet is made from a deep ruby-pink pinwale cord and a floral Tana Lawn I found at Spotlight of all places!  Spottie actually had quite a good selection of the Tana Lawn (made in Japan too), I'm assuming it's a Liberty rip-off?  Anyway, as much as I would love to be loyal to Liberty my bank balance isn't and I do like being able to select things by hand instead of online.  They also had a range of vintage reproduction prints which were too cute but I had to restrain myself as I do not have a need for any new fabric.

I had a hard time getting good photos of her modeling the bonnet, and I did take a heap.  I don't think our point and shoot camera is very good either, the colours are not quite right (except for the one below).  Lewis wanted in on the action too. 

The pattern is available from Little Betty for only six bucks (less in A$)!!
